Actually, Wally is correct. I'd assumed the bridge in the background was the ATSF bridge, but it's the Los Angelese Terminal's trestle, which is itself not-added.

I'll fix GPS coords and add the un-added trestle. Thanks Wally!

With all due respect, you can clearly see the PE bridge paralleling the Santa Fe bridge. If it were up by Judson Studios, it wouldn't have been paralleling the ATSF bridge.

Your location is way off...............PE bridge was next to where Judson studio is now
