Expo Line Train Test

Metro tested the rails today for the Subway to the Sea. The Train Cowboy cycled over to take a look! (but this video was shot by LA Metro.)

Pretty cool stuff, and progress on the train line that no one thought could be built!

This line will be a welcome addition for many reasons, one of them paradoxical. Anyone who has commuted in LA will tell you that the largest volume of traffic moves from downtown, westward on the 10 freeway, to the westside. This is kind of different from most cities, where the traffic moves INTO downtown... Ahh, Los Angeles has to be different!
