A San Diego Trolley (light rail) train at Sante Fe Depot.
The San Diego Trolley was the first light rail system in the United States (opened 1981), and pre-dates the coining of the term “light rail” by UMTA, which is why it’s called the Trolley.
This picture is from 2010, but I was in San Diego last week, so I thought I’d put up a relevant photo.
Thanks to a post today from Transit Maps, I’ve got a bunch of new followers. To welcome all of you, here’s a photo of a Metro map in the Gallery Place station in Washington, DC.

In early June, Amtrak’s California Zephyr detoured through Wyoming, along the Overland Route (home to the Amtrak Pioneer until 1997). I was on board to see the rare scenery in the Cowboy State.
Here, you can see cattle grazing in a field near the Bear River, just outside of Evanston, Wyoming. The Rocky Mountains are in the distance, low on the horizon.
