The Train in J-town

I was surprised to see a train coming down the First Street Bridge heading west on First Street in front of Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple about 8:35 am today. It was surreal, knowing that it's been decades since trains have run in Little Tokyo. I remember the old train tracks back in the early 70s when I was a child. This is the 2nd one I've seen, so it must be getting close to being ready, huh?
