This Saturday, the Southern California Transit Adovates will host Fabio Ficano of Ansaldo Breda, the rail car company in the middle of the controversy about who will supply rail cars for future the expansion of the Gold Line.

After Streetsblog reported on the controversy in our review of the last Metro Board meeting, Ficano and several Streetsblog commenters had a spirited discussion over several of the issues surrounding Ansaldo Breda and the company's current obligations to Metro.  I don't want to rehash those arguments, but they call can be read here.

You can continue that discussion in person at So.CA.TA.'s monthly meeting this weekend, which is open to the public.  The meeting will begin at 1:00 P.M. at the Angelus Plaza
4th Floor Community Room, 255 S. Hill Street in
Downtown L.A.  For transit directions to the meeting, check out So.CA.TA's  website.
