New Alameda Corridor Has Long History
Banning was known as the 'King of Transportation' and the 'Father of the Los Angeles Harbor.' He hauled freight and people up the 21-mile railway that he built to link the harbor to Los Angeles. Towns along the San Pedro & Los Angeles Railroad began to thrive. On Friday, a new $2.4-billion high-speed rail line will open along the new Alameda Corridor.
