    Lynwood station now sits in a park near St. Francis hospital,
    as this site is now covered over by the 105 fwy. The line is
    mostly intact on the east side of the L.A. river, with a newly
    restored Bellflower station still standing and looking ready
    for passengers. The original southbound catenary hangers are still present in the photo, although the tracks are gone.
    Some day the present MTA plans to reopen this line in cooperation with the OCTA, So that one day we might leave
    the 55 Chevy or the Merc at home and zip down to Knotts berry farm for a chicken dinner (the right of way passes just south of the park).
