When the first Metrolink "Beach Train" rolled into town June 15, bringing 600 passengers from the Inland Empire to the city's beaches, restaurants and stores, organizers of the service couldn't have guessed how popular it would become. The number of excursions, first set at three, was expanded to seven during the summer, and now two more--one this month and one in October--are scheduled. The weekend day trips are in such demand that tickets regularly sell out.

A citizens group's informal survey of the local business climate has confirmed what city officials have long believed: San Clemente misses the boat when it comes to providing shopping opportunities for its residents. The study, released last week by local real estate consultant Wayne Eggleston, indicated that 56% of the respondents said they always or often shop out of town for goods and services for wider selections and lower prices.
