Re: LA Rail Revival

To explain the current colour code system for LA's subway and LRT lines.

The Red Line is now the heavy rail subway starting at Union Station which
eventually should reach the San Fernando.   The cars are stainless steel
with red stripes.  The old Pacific Electric system operated the famous "red
cars".  The new LRT system to Long Beach, the Blue Line, commemorates the
old red line territory by having a red stripe along its blue/white painted
cars.  There is also the Green Line, which goes from Redondo Beach, passes
near LA airport with shuttle bus connections from the terminals, intersects
with the Blue Line about halfway between Long Beach and Wiltshire Boulevard,
then terminates in the middle of nowhere around Norwalk, where there is a
bus station, and further shuttle buses available to Norwalk/Santa Fe Springs
Metrolink station.
