Grain Craft Unit Train in Montebello CA This Sunday
Author: erielackawanna

Between word from some friends and posts here on TO, I knew there was a BNSF unit grain on its way to LA Sunday with two rare units, an AC44C4M rebuild leader and a Grinstein Green DPU facing out. Then I saw posts it was on the Union Pacific and through Montclair and thought, I can beat it to Montebello to shoot the leader in nice light and beat it again to 4th Street to get the DPU in nice light. Looked again and the Montclair post was forty minutes old. It was already nearing Pico Rivera. I reset for 4th Street only, when word came down they were holding in Montebello and the power was going to be pulled at Weeds (so no 4th Street shot). Raced to Montebello, met up with a good friend there, and got some shots of both it and a G3 to Long Beach intermodal just before the sun set. 

Image one is of the train parked under Bluff Road with the Hacienda Hills in the background.

Image two is of the IG3LB arriving.

Image three is a closer look at IG3LB as it is about to cross Montebello.

Great chance to get those photos.
That's my 'hood in the hills in the background, We call them  the Puente Hills.

I miss running the old GE -9's. The 600's were cool before that crappy C4 truck revamp. Those things are a joke!
