Eastside trains to get a speed boost

Don’t get too excited, but a spot of good news from Metro rail officials: software will be installed by the end of next week that will allow Gold Line Eastside Extension trains to go…drumroll…15 mph over the Hollywood Freeway bridge, an improvement over the 10 mph presently allowed.

The speed increase is expected to shave less than a minute off travel times between Union Station and the Little Tokyo/Arts District station.

Here’s a link to post from earlier this week about the new Gold Line and its speed.
