All day on the SoCal rails

The inveterate urban explorers at Southern California Transit Advocates came up with a pretty cool Day After Thanksgiving outing this year: they will ride all four Metrolink lines on Friday, and for just $7.25 a person using the service's friends and family 4-pack discount. They leave Union Station on the Orange County line at 8 a.m., and arrive back for good on the Antelope Valley line at 7:50 p.m. There are optional exit points through the day and a lunch break, and if you care to join en route you can follow the progress on Twitter. This year's exercise in transit riding even made Metrolink's official newsletter.
