I'll speculate it was shot from the rear of an Amtrak train. Being single track perhaps the line the runs along the coast as the lines into LA Union Station are double track.

The old Santa Fe Railway (now BNSF) Redondo Beach branch Line looking northeast toward Redondo Junction in Los Angeles, CA. now abandoned. That shot above was taken just northeast of Van Ness Avenue.

Deshler it is. I figured someone would figure it out without to many clues. Picture came from a site with the depots of Henry County. It includes this view and the original wider view
