The accident happened around 1:15 Tuesday morning.
A car was struck and two people injured on the Metrolink tracks near the Delmar Station early Tuesday morning. Fox 2 KTVI reports that the accident happened around 1:15 a.m. A car apparently crashed through a fence and ended up on the tracks. Authorities say for some reason the red Pontiac first drove through a private lot then crashed through the fence near Rosedale and Skinker. A short time later, a Metrolink train t-boned the car on the passenger’s side. A man and woman in their early 20s were in the car. They were both taken to an area hospital where they are in serious but stable condition. For more information, see Fox 2's full report.

Joe Edwards said he'd like to see the camera system up and running by March at the latest.
In its bid to hire a firm to oversee the installation of a video surveillance system in the Loop, the City of University City said the system will need to be operational by June. However, Joe Edwards wants the security system up and running a lot sooner than that. At Tuesday's meeting of the Loop Special Business District, Edwards, owner of Blueberry Hill and other popular Loop destinations, said he'd like to see the surveillance system operational by March at the latest. While the cameras had been in the works for sometime, business owners really pushed for them after a particularly disruptive weekend last April in the Loop, which involved hundreds of unruly young people. "Maybe they can speed it up," Edwards said to Raymond Lai, Deputy …

The Loop Trolley is expected to run from near the lion gates in University City to DeBaliviere Avenue, and then south to Forest Park and back.
There's been a change of plans in the design of the Loop Trolley cars. Originally, the plan called for the trolley to use hybrid cars, which are battery operated in combination with power from overhead wires. However, the system will now be made up of heritage cars. Those are used trolley cars from the 1920s and 1940s that will be retrofitted for today's needs. The heritage cars will require electric lines along the entire route, said University City Mayor Shelley Welsch in a blog posting on her personal website. Welsch is a member of the Loop Trolley Transportation Development District. "I was told that progress has been made in making such lines less visually obtrusive than they have been in the past," she said on her blog. "This may …

Trains LTD has a large selection of electric trains, new and old.
For generations, electric toy trains have captivated people of all ages. It is certainly the case for Steve Lukefahr, owner of Trains Ltd., located at 8151 Delmar in University City.
