Alstom has invested 1.4 million dollars to renovate the installations of the site, a military camp from 1853 to 1996. New track has been laid. A ditch about 1metre 50cm deep has been built to enable access beneath double-decker cars, whose weight makes it impossible to work by lifting.

14 people are employed on the site. Five double-decker intercity cars have already been transported on site for renovation as part of the contract signed in August 2009 with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). A total of 66 cars of this type will be modernised by 2011.
