I have always found San Pedro a nice little town, despite what others might say about it. Recently, a new rail line, with old and replica Red Line Cars opened for operation along the waterfront. I will be sure to take a ride the next time I am down there. The Red Car was long gone by the time I moved to LA in 1986, but I have heard stories of it almost every day since.

Christiana Dominguez has an excellent post on the new line over at blogging.la.

The four Red Car boarding points are at the World Cruise Center, Downtown, Ports O' Call and Marina stations.
