From the Mountains to the Sea
Here's an image for those of us in Los Angeles wishing our current (limited) subway system went to the beach. Once upon a time the Los Angeles Pacific Railway did exactly that. They had a line (the Pasadena-Pacific) extending from Pasadena to...you guessed it...Santa Monica. So for a short time in the 1880s and 90s, Angelenos had what they are currently looking for. From what I understand, there are plans underway to construct a new underground line - due for completion in 2030 or something. That all sounds great to me - but I wish the city would take care of the swimming pool sized potholes on Highland Avenue first.
