A lot of the bridges have the PRR style high walls on all the automobile and pedestrian bridges, i am unsure about the overpass on top of the JSQ complex though since i am not up on street level aside from 1-2x a year, usually going the other direction.

Well,today, my Path railfanning, opened up by catching a set of eastbound PA5s taken from the pedestrian overpass just west of Tonnelle Avenue. You certainly have to get your lense in the openings there, which can be done, but you have to kneel.
Afterwards, I took a pic of JSQ yard from JFK Blvd. Backlighting was evident.

After JFK Blvd, I got some shots of eastbounds from the Summit Avenue overpass.

Here are the shots. I hope you all enjoy them. ... Parade3610#

I'm coming in late on this, but I took advantage of that pedestrian bridge west of Tonnelle myself, some years ago. This shot looks eastward towards the Tonnelle Ave. bridge.
