Remarks & Notes 
After working their way through the San Fernando Valley on the way up from Gemco yard in Van Nuys, Union Pacific's Saugus local has reached the western most end of their run at Honby. After tying their train down the power for the day's LOF42 takes a moment in between Metrolink commutes to run around their train. Once the power is on the east end the Saugus will be ready to switch Weyerhaeuser Building Materials (in Via Princessa) and Phillip's Plywood (in San Fernando) before returning to Gemco to tie up for the day. Former SP C-50-7 class caboose 4612 (now a shoving platform) in the foreground is on the siding while UP 1374 (ex SP GP40-2 7610) and HLCX 1032 (ex IC GP40 3038) run around on the main. Honby is at MP 38 on Metrolink's Valley Subdivision, just west of Via Princessa, CA.
