In El Segundo

Most of the final three miles of the route to the west and south, once it leaves the freeway median, is elevated.  The line travels near several large industrial facilities in El Segundo, with mammoth parking structures.  Employment has been less than fully stable in this part of the L.A. basin, and some of the aerospace industry presence that the line was envisioned to serve is gone. 

Los Angeles International Airport isn't far away, and one can view the provisions made for a future possible rail connection adjacent to the Aviation/I-105 station.  But you can't presently get there by public transit without transferring to a free bus shuttle.  Studies are ongoing.

The vibrantly green patch of earth visible here beyond the El Segundo/Nash station was for sale in 2004  when the photo was taken.
