    There’s a prominent story on High Speed Rail on NPR’s website today:

    Not only are they an aluminum jungle gym, since Monday, The Men in Vests at LAUS have finally been replaced by real live L.A. Sheriffs.

    Of course the turnstiles at Union Station have been manned by someone ever since they were put in place, but just watch LA Metro claim that ticket purchases are up at the Union Station TVM’s because of the turnstiles (and not the human presence!).

    P.S. I love how easy it is to reach over the shortish emergency gates at Wilshire/Normandie and push the red bar. You do set off an alarm but if you time it right, you’ll be speeding away on a train long before anyone from LA Metro or LASD can show up.
