Can someone provide a routing description for the former AT&SF alignment through Pasadena which Amtrak used until the mid-90's. I'm assuming today's Gold Line follows the former railroad alignment except for the elevated structure adjacent to Los Angeles Chinatown and in the median of the Foothill Freeway (I-210). Where did the railroad right-of-way diverge from the existing Gold Line right-of-way to enable Amtrak trains to continue eastward toward San Bernardino? Any information is appreciated.
