in LA - train travel an odditiy
- see quote below:
traveling by train or any public transportation
in LA is a novel as clean air after a rare rain
(which temporarily clears the car created smog -
placing it in the soil, if you can find land not
yet paved for the auto).
People here in Southern California think the only
non-car transport is at Disneyland
(another reason NOT to frequent Disneyland)

That reminds me location wise of the train
station for Ottawa out in the boonies, with the
only connection to the city being the transitway
