Ah the things that foamers will foam over...

Twas once a Union Passenger Terminal for all three RR's that "terminated there passenger services at Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, replacing LA Grand Central (UP and SP), and the ATSF moorish domed station at First Street on the ATSF damaged in the Long Beach earthquake.

All trains of all three roads terminated here, and the Sunset Limited did not continue to San Francisco by the time LAUPT was completed, as it had from Grand Central "Station" down between 4th and 5th Street on Alameda, with a wye at the old coach yard off of Alameda to turn it west bound up Alameda, and on through the Bull Ring, up to SFO.

Life before LAUPT was passenger railroading on Alameda Street, a double tracked mainline and up through the Bull Ring to the LA River bridge at Dayton Tower was double track, before the flood and single tracking, and before Metrolink double tracked it again... All before LAUPT got "those evil belching steam trains off of the street", so we could enjoy the ozone our unregulated automobile fumes created...

And now MTA calls LAUPT a Station as in LAUS. However, is still a stub end terminal, until someday MTA get's off it's ass, and pull their heads out, and gets the work for the run through started... So maybe someday, supposedly before the Olympics in 2028, it will be a "run through" station, without wying the train, or changing ends...

Once runthrough LOSSAN service began LAUPT did kind of became a "station" LAUS, located somewhre between LA and Goleta...

Now, does that properly fail to clarify anything, with even more uncertainty?
