I would not count on the Starlight between EMY and LAX. The problem is a bridge on the property of the USAF Vandenburgh base.. UP is having difficulties stablizing it . UP ETC is end of month.Thinking on how much trouble that the route to San Diego keeps getting pushed on now to end of March. Saw pictures on another site about a very long UP RIP RAP train heading toward the bridge.
The Santa Ynez river that the bridge spans has a rather large draiage basin west of Bradberry dam and resivoir near Santa Ynez town so flood rain water may have underscored one or more of the foundations. The Neverland amusement park & trains, train garage believe is also in that drainage basin.
EDIT - Problem --- UP may have to wait as Bradbury dam is having to release water. That may make repairs to bridge needing to wait until discharge is complete.
Storms fill Lake Cachuma near capacity and a release is planned, but the drought is still ‘far from over.’
