Located 1 block north of Union Station, Olvera St, and the Hollywood 101 Freeway at Alameda and Ord St.
From the Los Angeles Times
January 25, 2006
Before the Hollywood Freeway gouged through the Aliso Street neighborhood
downtown, a Santa Fe El Capitan train engine overshot Union Station and
crashed through a wall, into an electric trolley pole, and almost into
the laps of restaurant diners. The brakeman jumped out before the crash,
but the engineer stayed on until the engine stopped, dangling 20 feet
above Aliso Street.
