Street resurfacing on 7th Street (just west of Alvarado, near Langer's Delicatessen-Restaurant) has revealed a stretch of old Los Angeles Railway rail still embedded in the street, more than 50 years after the last Los Angeles MTA streetcars operated.

    And a piece of the 7 line, which was abandoned in 1955 or 56, was unearthed last year during preliminary work for the Downtown Connector. This was in Spring St., just south of 2nd.
