Author: JasonCNW

Watching an episode of DRAGNET this morning and this was in the opening credits.  Does anyone know what yard this was?

Roseville perhaps? Well it's probably in LA County.....maybe on what is now PHL?

The picture is kind of blurry, but my guess would be SP’s “Bullring” yard near downtown LA.

In the distance is the L.A. County Hospital. The Bullring is probably a good guess.

I'd say it's the east end of Bullring.

Definitely SP Bullring Yard looking East from North Broadway.

The Cornfield , Links, area of the yard. The bullring yard was closer to Dayton tower.

You know, I think I remember seeing that scene when that episode was first aired in what I believe was 1967.  Certainly noticed the SW1200!
