It was fairly early on a Sunday morning in
January at the time of this photo, and few passengers were on board this Union Station-bound
train as it headed along the median of Marmion Way.
When construction originally began on the route, the Gold Line was
identified as a disconnected part of the Blue Line from L.A. to Long
Beach. Soon after, it gained its own color identification.
Planners are exploring funding opportunities to connect the two lines, utilizing
running along surface streets in downtown Los Angeles.
