Dixon (UP)

Dixon was on a UP spur that paralled Etiwanda Ave. east of Ontario, CA. Railfan and Pacific Electric modeler Tom VanWormer photographed these simple loading sheds at Dixon in April 1967.

Etiwanda Ave. is in the foreground. The sheds, evidently used primarily for loading grapes, are shown in more detail in the following close-up view.


Cliff Prather was at Dixon a year later and photographed this UP local from the opposite side of tracks.

In June 1968 Tom photographed an interesting industrial complex in the same general area east of Ontario (Photo-TVW). The exact location and purpose of this facility are unknown.
