Entertaining renderings, but second track missing from image along Lincoln Ave. ("paralleling a street in S.A.")

Nobody's updated the Surfliner route, don't think anyone will until the new one comes out... I doubt anybody wants to touch the FPM Surfliner route either.

It creates for some good "nostalgia" though, which is what posting a dream of running the 3751 is all about ;)

Cool pics.
