Pacific Surfliner is second, not third, busiest route[edit]

Corrected lead paragraph to show Pacific Surfliner as the second busiest Amtrak route, behind the Northeast Corridor, at least for the month of January 2006. [1] Previously, both the Capitol Corridor and the Pacific Surfliner page claimed that each route was the third busiest (see further discussion at Talk:Capitol Corridor). Also, in the same sentence, changed the NEC reference from Acela (which is an article about just the Acela brand name) to Northeast Corridor, since technically both the Acela/Metroliner service and the Regional service surpass the California routes. - Comodude 03:25, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Station Articles[edit]

Could someone help out with the station articles that have yet to be made. I'm not from California, so I don't know about the stations, so if anyone is familiar with them, please create good articles. I can always help improve them. Geoking66 04:36, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm not from California either, and I noticed that the infobox for Northridge (Metrolink station) was given a color bar for this line, even though all evidence indicates that Amtrak doesn't stop there. And I was getting ready to add an Amtrak routebox to the Metrolink one until I found this out. ---- DanTD 16:17, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
Your right the PS doens't stop at Northridge. I'm from Southern CA and I would be willing to help answer any questions and help improve the pages. RickyCourtney 07:56, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Route template[edit]

The reason why the route map is displayed outsidethe infobox is that it doesn't display correctly when inside it. It ends up with gaps between each line segment. Tompw (talk) (review) 16:36, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Not for me it doesn't, whereas I'm getting a few gaps outside the infobox. Mackensen (talk) 17:09, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I think it's an IE-specific issue, because Firefox and Opera don't have this problem. Using IE 6, I found zooming out one level eliminated the issue altogether. Making the text smaller might fix the problem too, but I'm not sure how to "fix" it for just one browser. Mackensen (talk) 17:23, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Laguna Niguel / Mission Viejo[edit]

The Pacific Surfliner now serves Metrolink's station at Laguna Niguel / Mission Viejo, right? I think this should be added. The Interloafer (talk) 15:25, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

2009 Ridership[edit]

The 3.09 million figure is unsubstantiated in either of the references. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the FY2009 has not ended just yet. In the meantime, I will post up the 2.89 million figure for FY2008.Facial (talk) 23:41, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

I stand corrected. The FY2009 period ended Sept. 30th, and new figures are up.Facial (talk) 02:06, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Accidents Section[edit]

This is akin to a trivia section, or listing accidents on the 405 freeway. A quick look at the San Joaquins and Capitol Corridor routes gives some perspective on the proper layout of an article.

An encyclopedia should be a summary of information about a subject, and thus, listing accidents should not be included.Facial (talk) 00:56, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

History/ Proposed Expansions Section[edit]

This article could benefit greatly from the addition and expansion of a dedicated "History" (as seen in the California Zephyr article though its a bit unorganized there]] and "Proposed Expansions" section (as seen in the Capitol Corridor article). Socalres (talk) 01:44, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

  • i.e. Proposed University City tunnel, doubling tracking efforts, electrification proposals, etc. Socalres (talk) 02:41, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Surf, not Surt[edit]

Interactive map contains the misspelling "Surt" for the coastal location Surf. (talk) 15:29, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Fixed.--RickyCourtney (talk) 04:29, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
