A Los Angeles Gold Line train is at the Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park station. Notice the “transit oriented development” condos adjacent to this station. (Noel Braymer photo)
Quad gates at this Heritage Park station intersection provide increased safety for Gold Line trains and for drivers crossing here. See these gates in operation on RailPAC’s video www.youtube.com/noelnoelt. (Noel Braymer photo)
Lincoln Avenue in Santa Ana on the route of the Surfliners has been a single track bottleneck dating back to Santa Fe railroad days. It is finally being double tracked. (Noel Braymer photo)
The Fullerton Railway Plaza Association held its annual Rail Fair May 5-6, 2007. Amtrak California dressed up a Thruway bus for its display! (Mike Palmer photo)
Northbound Coast Starlight #14 is at the Cesar Chavez grade crossing, less than a mile before reaching the Santa Barbara station. It was “on time!” Timekeeping for the Starlight has improved greatly in recent weeks. (Mike Palmer photo)
