Remarks & Notes 
Back in 1997 I had an absolute dream job (except for the lower than expected pay and the drive to Burbank and home each day which probably took ten years off my life). Still, I was working at NBC, had a good title, and great lunch breaks that allowed me to poke about the local railroad scene. January 27, 1997 happened to be one of those days and I lucked out to also have great lighting and an unusual consist. Metrolkink #856, in the original (and frankly best) Metrolink scheme led Metrolink #859 in the (at that time) just appearing new scheme on Metrolink train #105, Ventura County line service. Most of my lunchtime adventures bagged me only one train, Metrolink #105, but I wasn't complaining this day. The spot here was the (at the time) Burbank Airport Metrolink station at the Burbank–Glendale–Pasadena Airport. Railroad-wise, this was CP Lockheed. Some years later this would bcome Bob Hope Burbank Aiport and the CP would become CP Millhouse. The airport was then renamed again, is now Hollywood Burbank Airport.
