Ghost Tracks (2017)

In the concrete parking lot outside buildings E, F and T at Bergamot Station bordering Olympic Boulevard is a section of partially-buried train tracks. The tracks are most exposed between buildings F and T, where I took this picture. They look to be ghostly remnants of the original Bergamot Station, where the last Pacific Electric “Red Car” train departed in 1953. The tracks are only a few meters away from the new 26th Street/Bergamot station on the Metro Rail Expo Line, which opened in 2016.
