Hear UP, BNSF, LAJ, PHL and the Metrolink Commuter trains being dispatched out of the LA area to San Bernardino/Colton/Riverside & other points east and south down through the Alemeda Corridor to the Ports of Los Angeles & Long Beach.   It’s then either up the Cajon Pass & on to the Mojave desert, down through the San Timeteo Canyon & on to Yuma, out the Santa Susana Pass & on to Ventura, or up the Newhall Pass to Lancaster.

There’s plenty of overnight yard/switching activity/communications coming out of the Ports at Lon Beach & Los Angeles, the Montclair & Mira Loma areas serving local industry in the Pomona, Chino, & Fontana areas.  As for AMTRAK, hear the Sunset Limited, Southwest Chief, & all Pacific Surfliners trains. You might even hear a problem in the making?

Four (4) major UP subdivisions, two (2) BNSF subdivisions & five (5) Metrolink subdivisions are covered by monitoring only 10 frequencies.  Three (3) additional frequencies are monitored covering the Los Angeles Junction Railroad (LAJ),  Pacific Harbor Lines (PHL) and the Alameda Corridor:
