UP SBA SUB CTC Question?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Altamont Press Timetable & Products : One Thread
Is the Santa Barbara Sub Phase I project done?
I understand SLOCOG is rounding up some cash to upgrade the Grover Siding and the SLO Yard Lead to main track status and add a third platform in in San Luis Obispo for possible future Surfliner Expansions.
Another thing they are considdering is building a station in Santa Margarita (top-of-the-grade) for Surfliner trains and having some trains terminate at Paso with stops at Santa Margarita and Atascadero. CTC from the San Luis Obipso-Monterey County Line is also planned, as is CTC from East San Luis Obispo to approximately the east end of the former Narlon Block.

No station planned for Santa Margarita. No station at Atascadero, either -- it's too close to Paso Robles.
