    I've driven all around that area. I assume you're referring to the elevators directly across (west) of the station. Google earth will show you where all the tracks run.

    When you say "head east" Vince, ya lost me. The tracks are on the ocean side of I-5 which is to the west. I too, now remember that 70 tonner there on my last trip through. You know that really cool cantilever signal with 6 targets at the station is now gone. Damn, I told Paul to leave that one for historical value, but his crew shinned me off.
