Mr. Toad's Wild Ride Through Expo Line, Complete With Pesky Kids

New, 27 comments

The Transit Coalition undertook an ambitious plan to film the western end of the old Pacific Electric Santa Monica Air Line right-of-way, which is slated to become the Expo Line light-rail to Santa Monica. The fruits of some of their labors is available now on Youtube via Expo's Facebook page. The video is quite a professional operation and features music from John Adams. A description of the filming process on the comments: "Using? a weighted camera balance and a lot of walking. Tracing the line on a map and driving all over the place to get to each section. Kind of a fun Sunday. The next part will be a bit more challenging, but we'll get there." Passing through the backroad tour of West LA, you can see some teenagers in Cheviot Hills (up to no good?), but no anti-Expo signs (yet).
