    I cannot wait for the streetcar to come back.  When it does, communities all over southern california that are unlikely receive grade separated rail will be clamoring for their own.

    Personally, since this is functioning as a circulator, I like option 1 the best, but I think 7 will be chosen, which is still cool..
