The First Watson is smaller than a tree.
With early afternoon high sun finally starting to wane I headed out for my lunchtime non-Summer standby, BNSF's First Watson, which while a yard job, runs from Wilmington California to Torrance California and then all the way to El Segundo California and back, all on the one-time main line, Harbor Line, now cut at El Segundo. Driving to Lawndale, I spotted the job going to beans at Costco near Manhattan Beach, so settled at the beginning of Monaco Hill at a spot that used to have wire obstructions in the way. Apparently someone cleared them away. Waited about 30 minutes before the horn started chirping and blaring as the short four-car train (three tanks and one buffer) made it was down to Lawndale.
