Brew 102 - Railway Service

My membership in this forum has just been approved, but I have been enjoying this thread for quite a while.

Something I have wanted to ask about was in the picture showing the Brew 102 building I have included below. It looks to me as if this business had rail service - not an unusual thing for a big brewery. The reason I wonder about that is the object in the red circle - is that a locomotive on the street? Note the high-visibility "tiger stripes".

Street running of railways has always been interesting to me but it is increasingly rare. Did Los Angeles have much street running of freight or passenger railways (not including the street cars and Pacific Electric services)? Did PE have freight operations?
