Mission

(also called South Pasadena, its the one stop in that city) is a Gold Line Station on the former ATSF ROW that Amtrak's Southwest Chief (also called the Southwest Limited and Super Chief at times) ran over until January 14, 1994. It is on the former location of the South Pasadena station but this was closed long before the Amtrak era.

The station is located between the grade crossings (with bells and lights) of El Centro Street (where Glendon Way intersects it) and Mission Street (where it is intersected by Meridan Avenue). The station has two side platforms that have a single canopy in their midsections and Astride-Aside by Michael Stutz for artwork that I completely missed. Entrances are slightly complicated because of the diagonal nature of the grade crossings at either end of the station. The El Centro Street end has a ramp to the Los Angeles-bound platform, just stairs to the Pasadena-bound platform, the reverse is true at the Mission Street end.
