San Diego Trolley

San Diego, the city that started the  Light Rail craze in the US. It is a wonderful system. It's workers seem to exhibit pride in their work. Everything associated with the trolley is painted red, from the cars, maintenance equipment to gates and benches. 

Most of the system is surface running, but there is one subway station. The mid-coast extension is under construction that should open in 2021.
