Dude, it's called "MARC" and it stands for "Maryland Area Regional Commuter" and before that it was "Maryland Rail Commuter Service."

The wiki article is wrong it stands for Maryland Area Rail Commuter or Maryland Rail Commuter

Well, I've been riding MARC for 4 years, and I've either seen it called "Maryland Rail Commuter," or "Maryland Area Rail Commuter" (which is what I originally thought it was). Maybe it's ambigious (or maybe they recently changed the "R" to "Regional"), because the MTA officially simply calls it MARC. That said, the MTA has made big mistakes on their site and otherwise...

In Los Angeles, toss up between Metrolink and the Gold Line.

My favourite passenger railroad is Amtrak, but I am very interested in the "rainbow era", where one could see GG-1s, E60s, and Metroliners running on the corridor.
