LAUS Summer Train Fest – But where are the advocates?

Take a look at the announcement for the Summer Train Fest:

Union Station Summer Train Fest to be held Saturday, July 15

As I write we have not received an invitation, even though we were regularly invited to National Train Day activities.  Apparently we have to be approved by Metro, Metrolink and LOSSAN, possibly Amtrak as well although since Amtrak laid off all their marketing staff they are unlikely to participate.  And since Amtrak is also doing its best to eliminate private cars from its trains I hear the organizers are having a tough time lining up much of a display.

Whatever happens, I’ll be there representing RailPAC, and I’ll have information to distribute about the Southwest Chief, and other hot topics.  If you care to join me please contact me at
