Riding the Rails

Last week I was very, very lucky to be invited on a preview ride of the new Expo Line that runs from downtown to Culver City. The line opens April 28 and I almost can’t believe it’s happening—I’ve been writing about this for about six years. More stories and photos coming soon, but here was one of my favorite shots: From the La Cienega station, which is one of the elevated ones, there are some pretty incredible views, including the smudge of downtown’s skyline you can see at the center of the photo. When I moved to LA I never imagined I’d see a train this far west.

    Seems like you have a pretty low threshold for “amazing views”. I see a gas station and a Jack in the Box.

    Lol @rexford. Still, it’s nice that there’s going to be some rail on the Westside, even though the Express buses go further to places of interest (the Farmer’s Market, the Grove).
