Gold Line adventure

I thought this a fascinating montage of a Metro trip on the Eastside of L.A.  (You have to get past the trip-out music if you're not a fan of such things, although I do think it helps lend a lot of poignancy to the video).  The thing that strikes me is the gleaming newness of the metro stations & trains - which, from the POV of the person who made the video, appear almost empty.  So much investment into such a massive infrastructure.  And yet above ground there are few examples of any recent, major capital investment.  Maybe that's the author's point.  But that's how it looks to me.
