East Highlands (ATSF)

East Highlands was on the east loop of Santa Fe's "Kite Shaped Route" that ran from San Bernardino through Redlands and Mentone to East Highlands then back to San Bernardino via Highland and Patton (the west loop went from Los Angeles to San Bernardino via Pasadena then back to Los Angeles via Fullerton).

had referred to them as "House Top"guard rails. (Marty Quass photo)
