The Los Angeles Junction Railway is a small BNSF subsidiary that serves industries the cities of Vernon, Commerce and Los Angeles. They employ a rather unique fleet of motive power including two CF7's and four MK1200G natural gas switchers, the only ones of their kind.
The LAJ has not been a part of the City of Los Angeles since 1960 when the City of Commerce was incorporated. Incorporation of Vernon & Maywood occurred in 1905 & 1924 respectively. One has to wonder how "Los Angeles" became part of the LAJ name!
