Construction – CalMod - the foundations and poles are at least partially done for nearly all of the line. Wires are present in some parts, and traction power stations, where listed, are partially done.

Just two idle questions:

Who provides the power, and what happens when PG&E declares Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

PG&E exited Chap 11 bankruptcy July 1 of this year. Not to say they are the model of a healthy utility, but I think the liability for fires, etc has been settled.

I'm sure if full Chap 7 is ever contemplated, the state will take over as there are many more important electricity users in N. Calif than Caltrain (which can always pull out old diesels if nec.)
