LA Metro Receives Light Rail Cars At New Train Yard

Los Angeles Metro transported four light rail cars to its new Southwestern Yard (SWY) facility to begin testing. The facility, expected to be completed and operational in 2019, will house rail vehicles for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, which is in the final construction stages. The railcars were pulled 4.2 miles by a special high-rail vehicle, from the Green Line Hawthorne Yard to the SWY. The new facility will have the capacity to store 56 light rail vehicles, encompassing a main shop, rail vehicle wash (similar to a carwash), cleaning platform, material storage building, wheel truing shop and a paint and body shop building.
