For many, April 20 is a stoner’s holiday, but this 4/20 is about something else: the one-month mark until the Expo Line extension opens to Santa Monica.
Maybe you can’t wait to never park at the beach again? Possibly you’re thrilled to not have to drive to your tech gig anymore? Whatever the reason, it’s thrilling to soon have rail service from DTLA to the Santa Monica pier.
In light of this day, enjoy 10 videos of the train’s pre-revenue service—where operators replicate actual passenger service—from train watcher Bob Zwolinksi, via Expo enthusiast Dwight Sturtevant. Some nice shots of the line’s adjacent pedestrian- and bike-paths, as well.
