Southern Pacific
Colton, California (Colton Crossing)

It may not look like much, just two tracks crossing two other tracks at grade, but Colton Crossing is one of the busiest crossings in the country. The double track main leading directly away from the camera is the Southern Pacific's main west to Los Angeles, while the Santa Fe's mainline crosses from left to right.
