The CBS detective drama “Elementary” is scheduled to film at a Glendale railroad crossing Friday night.
The shoot will take place from 6 p.m. until 4:30 a.m. the next morning at the at-grade crossing on 73rd Street off Edsall Avenue.
According to the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting, the scene involves a man pushing a stalled vehicle off the tracks just before a train passes through the crossing. Though a lighting effect will be used to simulate a railroad crossing gate, no actual train will be part of the sequence.
The scene will be part of a future episode in the third season of “Elementary,” an updated version of Sherlock Holmes starring Jonny Lee Miller as the famous sleuth and Lucy Liu as his partner-in-crime, Dr. Joan Watson.
Parking will be prohibited along streets near the railroad crossing during the shoot to accommodate production vehicles. The affected streets include Edsall Avenue between 72nd and 73rd places; 73rd Street between Edsall and Central avenues; Central Avenue between 72nd and 73rd places; and Myrtle Avenue between 69th and 71st streets.
