I remember watching the SP local running on this line with SW1500,Alco S-6 and misc. other switchers. The tracks actually went beyond Alla Road and terminated east of SR-1 Lincoln Blvd. There was a cross over diamond and a wye at the end of the line for the trains to back on to the Santa Monica/Inglewood line. A portion of the line between Braddock Drive and Elenda Ave. is now a bike path and pedestrian walkway. The west end is occupied by a self storage center and the SR-90 Marina Freeway. The east end is occupied by homes and Sony Studios. The old SP depot in Culver City has been converted into a performing arts center.
Appears to follow Pacific Electric line.
