From the photographer’s notes – "I went to the end of the present Gold Line to get some pictures before the final connection was made to the new section. I was surprised to see the rail was all connected, ballast tamped and leveled. All of the Overhead support poles are in and cross arms were that very day being installed. By the time you receive these pictures the wire may have been strung. Note they have installed a Pocket Track just East of the Platform.
I was very fortunate to have an escorted tour of the new Yard and Shops now under construction in Monrovia. It is huge and very impressive. The yard will hold 85 rail cars. They will do heavy repairs with pits. There is a 15 Ton overhead crane. This is bigger than most. There will be a car wash and a large Stores Dept. Body and Paint Shops. I may have missed a couple. It is really fitting together very fast."
