For the sixth month in a row, Metrolink trains to Ventura County were late more often than on any other line in the rail carrier's five-county system, a report released Friday shows. The report by the Southern California Regional Rail Authority found that during July, a third of the trains returning from Los Angeles to Ventura County were at least five minutes late. Trains from Ventura County into Los Angeles had a much better performance rate, arriving late only 6% of the time.

A recent fatal head-on collision at a railroad crossing west of Moorpark has prompted city officials to step up efforts to pressure the state Department of Transportation or the Southern Pacific railroad to make the crossing safer. The July 9 accident was the second fatal head-on collision at the crossing in less than a week, officials said.

Santa Paula has become the first Ventura County city to give its support to the "tilt train," a high-speed train that would run along the coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles with stops proposed in Oxnard and Ventura. In a unanimous vote, council members on Monday approved a resolution backing the project, which the private Southern Pacific Lines is trying to sell to state and federal transportation officials by amassing local support in counties along the proposed route.

Juanita McDonald first encountered "The Octopus" when she was vice mayor of Carson. The Octopus is what they used to call the Southern Pacific Railroad when the company ran California in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Political reformers and the decline of the railroads have weakened The Octopus but, as McDonald found, the monster is still pretty strong. For years, long freight trains have blocked rush-hour traffic at Carson and Alameda streets.

Gov. Pete Wilson has granted state officials the right to use eminent domain to acquire 20 miles of railroad tracks for creation of the Alameda Corridor, a transportation link between Southland ports and Downtown Los Angeles. A bill signed late Tuesday night gives Caltrans the power to condemn the railroad property and offer it at fair market value for the project.
