Remarks & Notes 
Rows of brand new Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks assembled at the automaker's Baja California, Mexico plant patiently wait their turn to be loaded onto empty auto racks. Since the plant has no direct rail service at their facility, Tacomas are trucked across the US/Mexico border to the BNSF's San Diego yard for their journey to dealerships around the US. With plans of a third shift coming on line in April of 2015, more traffic from the 12 year old plant will keep this automotive facility full of new cars. Special thanks to my cousin _trauma_ for helping me to safely take this photo.
