Train tracking

01 14 10_0326

We've been looking at old pictures and researching the history of Downey. We came across a piece about the old train station and were so intrigued that we went to see it. We found a little area that used to be a turnout running into a loading station but is now wild and overgrown. It is weird to see the past stagnant in the present. There are tiny palm trees growing through the tracks, graffiti fading on the walls, and doors that haven't been opened in years.

  1. My dad would go to the station to pick up his paycheck twice a month. It was so much fun to go with him.
