Concerned over delays in opening a Metrolink station in Sylmar, Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon requested Friday that city officials explain the cause of the delays and provide a plan to speed station construction. The proposed stop at Hubbard and 1st streets suffered several months of delays due to stalled real estate negotiations with the site's property owner. Now, Metrolink officials say the project has been put off again by delays in getting city permit approval for its design.

"L.A. Scene" by Cecilia Rasmussen (March 28), on railroad stations in Los Angeles, is one of the best ever. As Metrolink expands and rails become even more important to 21st Century travel in the region, a look back is important. What Rasmussen did not chronicle was that Southern Pacific tracks on Alameda Street in front of Union Station have been removed. These rails connected the Los Angeles & San Pedro Railroad to the SP's River Station and yards on North Main and now have been severed.
