Re: New blue line strip maps (Re: Los Angeles Expo line opening day)

Posted by LA Scott on Sat May 5 23:59:35 2012, in response to Re: New blue line strip maps (Re: Los Angeles Expo line opening day), posted by FYBklyn1959 on Sat May 5 23:45:56 2012.

I've been away from LA for 2 years, and have not really been keeping up with transit there.

What ever happened to the plans for building a new gold line yard by taking space from the Red/Purple Line yard and building a spur track to access it?

Some nice shots there Salaam! Thanks. :)

How was the ridership? It's been very light weekdays, but fairly busy weekends. The Metro board is disappointed at the ridership so far.

Great photos but they remind me of the Gold Line - do you believe they're similar?

It's not nearly as scenic as the gold line and it doesn't run in the middle of a freeway at the end or at any point. It's more like an east/west blue line, but with more destinations and much nicer.

Personally I like the old P865's over the new Breda P2550's. I do like seeing some of the newer P-2000's on the blue line now though.

They've been on the blue line for several months.

Also the blue line is getting rehabbed with new canopies, new monitors, benches, etc and getting a good scrub. :)

Already started according to metro, although I haven't seen any evidence of it.

You're right. I mean your high murder, assault, robbery, and rape districts with low police presence.

Thank you for understanding.

FWIW, even Steve Sailor noted that LA's worst neighbourhoods don't look terrible compared to what constitutes a "bad" neighbourhood in a Northeastern context.

Regardless, I'll make my way to LA one these days. LACMTA's somewhat interesting, and it's easy to get San Diego out of the way. Mind you, there are far too many other priorities for railfanning including CTA, but also London Underground and the TGV...

Yeah, no need to rush to LA if all you're interested is in trains, but we do have other stuff. Still I doubt that you'd like LA anyway.

Such as? I mean, other than blowing my savings on renting a Nissan GT-R and going up the mountains and visiting some local museums, I'm a bit pressed for what I could do.

Still I doubt that you'd like LA anyway.

Explain?

My understanding is the Gold, Red and Purple already serve mostly productive communites. Blue and Green, OTOH....

Am I wrong?
