Near the Santa Barbara train station sits a rail car, pictured below, that was purchased with Redevelopment Agency money and a state grant. The City of Santa Barbara has $500-$600K invested in it, purportedly, not including the time spent by City staff. A costly restoration was done on the inside; unfortunately, it cannot be boarded and viewed inside by anyone because it is not ADA compliant. So, it sits! This half-million dollar boondoggle was executed under the Marty Blum administration.
