It became known among the press that on March 27, Hoffman was considering a second reprieve of Hauptmann's death sentence, but was actively seeking advice concerning the legality of his right as governor to do so. San Jose Mercury News. Other witnesses testified that it was Hauptmann who had spent some of the Lindbergh gold certificates, that he had been seen in the area of the estate in East Amwell, New Jersey near Hopewell on the day of the kidnapping, and that he had been absent from work on the day of the ransom payment and quit his job two days later. Land's End View all 3 Locations. Suspicion fell upon Violet Sharp, a British household servant at the Morrow home.
On January 1, , Caltrain cut 4 midday trains but upgraded 4 weekend trains to Baby Bullet service as a pilot program. This reduced its schedule from 90 to 86 trains each weekday. Advocates for the increased tax cited its potential benefits to alleviate congestion along U.
The Caltrain Modernization Program will electrify the main line between San Francisco and the San Jose Tamien Station , allowing transition from diesel-electric locomotive power to fully electric rolling stock. Electrification would also allow future expansion to downtown San Francisco. Originally scheduled for completion by ,   the schedule had slipped after three months of construction to December 30, and then April 22, The electrification project between San Francisco and Tamien is the first phase, the second phase being from Tamien Station to Gilroy.
FRA granted Caltrain a waiver to operate these units, which were previously banned on mix-used lines with other FRA-compliant rolling stock due to concerns over crash worthiness, after Caltrain submitted simulation data showing UIC-compliant rolling stock performed no worse or even better than FRA-compliant rolling stock in crashes. In August , Caltrain ordered sixteen six-car double-decker electric multiple unit Stadler Rail trainsets. However, the plans for an electrified Caltrain were put in jeopardy in February by the Trump administration when US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao decided to indefinitely delay granting the federal funding for the Caltrain electrification project that had been approved by the Obama administration.
Secretary Chao claimed she could not sign the grant without the full grant being budgeted, which was disputed by Caltrain and both California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris.
As of only the structural "train box" below the Transbay Terminal has been funded and is being built. An alternative proposal, put forth by Mayor Ed Lee , would see the existing terminal and trains yards demolished along with Interstate in Mission Bay , then replaced with infill housing.
Caltrain and high-speed rail would instead be extended to the Transbay Terminal in a new tunnel under Third Street. In April , the alternative alignment through Mission Bay was rejected in favor of a revised alignment under Pennsylvania Avenue. This project would add four stations to the Caltrain system: The two obsolete swing bridges along the corridor would be replaced. A draft environmental impact report stated the lack of public transportation between Monterey County and the Bay Area has resulted in increased private commuter vehicle traffic.
The concept of a Caltrain extension to Monterey County has been considered since at least , with the cities of Salinas and Watsonville considering rail station improvements and construction between and , culminating in a TAMC-sponsored Extension of Caltrain Commuter Service to Monterey County Business Plan in The Salinas station would be rebuilt as an intermodal station to connect commuter rail with Monterey-Salinas Transit buses.
This project depends on state and federal funding availability, a possible local sales tax measure, and an agreement with Union Pacific, the owner of the Salinas-to-Gilroy tracks and right-of-way.
Two Capitol Corridor trains would originate from Salinas in the mornings and run through to San Jose and on to Sacramento, with two evening trains making the return trip south to Salinas. By , plans had shifted in favor of Amtrak California 's Capitol Corridor to be the service extended to Salinas station. The system has 32 stations, 29 served daily and two weekend-only. San Francisco 4th and King Street is the northern terminus of the system, while Gilroy is the southern terminus.
Atherton and Broadway are served only on weekends, and Stanford is served only on Stanford University 's football game days. Tamien is served by train on weekdays and by shuttle bus on weekends. Twelve stations are served by the express train service known as Baby Bullet, inaugurated in The Southern Pacific Railroad originally built many stations with a side platform on the west side of the tracks to serve southbound trains, plus a narrow island platform between tracks to serve northbound trains.
To protect northbound passengers from being struck by southbound trains, Caltrain implemented a "hold-out rule" GCOR 6. Most stations have been rebuilt often as part of larger projects with side platforms or wider island platforms, thus avoiding the hold-out rule.
Caltrain ridership more than doubled between and In addition, Caltrain carries over 4, people per hour in each direction, equivalent to two freeway lanes in each direction.
Caltrain uses a proof-of-payment system: Discounted 8-ride tickets and monthly passes are available only with a Clipper card. Caltrain eliminated sales of the 8-ride ticket as of October 1, ; existing 8-ride tickets would be honored through the end of October. Fares for Caltrain service are based on the number of zones traveled, which is considered to be the number of zones "touched" between the origin and destination.
For instance, a passenger that boards at a Zone 1 station and departs at a Zone 1 station is considered to travel within one zone. A passenger that boards at a Zone 2 station and departs at a Zone 4 station is considered to travel within three zones Zones 2, 3, and 4. Zone ticketing requires little infrastructure at the stations but can be expensive for passengers making a short trip that crosses a zone boundary each zone is 13 miles long.
Travel between Sunnyvale and Lawrence is a two-zone ride, since Sunnyvale is the southernmost station in Zone 3 and Lawrence is the northernmost station in Zone 4. A ride between Sunnyvale and Lawrence covers 2.
Passengers who use the electronic Clipper card to ride must remember to "tag on" with their card prior to boarding and "tag off" with their card after exiting the train. If passengers who use the Clipper card fail to tag off when they exit the train, they will be charged "the highest cash fare from [their] point of origin. In , Caltrain rolled out a mobile app allowing riders to purchase fares from Android and iOS smartphones.
Approximately 2, riders are given verbal warnings or written citations per month for fare evasion, and of those, an average of 15 are so upset they have assaulted conductors, who serve as the fare enforcement agents. Passengers who assault conductors are detained and charged with assault, potentially causing delays on trains, which are stopped while waiting for the police to respond.
Caltrain plans to move to a more streamlined process of issuing citations in April Rather than writing the citation on the spot, which takes up to fifteen minutes, the conductor will scan the photo ID, and a ticket will be mailed to the address on record, bypassing the civil court system. During the initial years as the state was assuming control — , locomotives and rolling stock were leased from Southern Pacific.
The leased "suburban" and "gallery" coaches continued to wear SP's standard dark grey. Locomotives wore SP's "Bloody Nose" paint scheme. The scheme was nicknamed "Rainbow",  "Postal Service", or "Mailbox". When new equipment was introduced in , CalTrain adopted a new logo and painted the newly acquired silver EMD F40PH locomotives with teal and blue stripes, matching the colors in the Caltrans logo. After the new Caltrain logo was adopted in , the F40PH locomotives were repainted to gray with a black roof, and the MPI MP36 locomotives ordered for Baby Bullet service wore gray with red accents.
Currently, each train on the schedule is assigned a three-digit number indicating direction, sequence and stop pattern. This number is not to be confused with the locomotive number , which is the 9xx number physically stenciled on each engine. The second and third digits are always displayed on the leading element of the train either the control car, for northbound trains, or the locomotive, for southbound trains ; the MPC locomotives have electronic displays showing all three digits of the train number when travelling southbound; when travelling northbound, the electronic display shows the 9xx locomotive number instead.
The practice of placarding train numbers dates back to when the trains were operated by Southern Pacific. Since , Caltrain has used the following locomotives , which are almost all powered by diesel engines: Currently, Caltrain trains consist of one locomotive and a five or six-car consist. Trains run in a puller configuration led by the locomotive towards San Jose and in a pusher configuration led by the cab car towards San Francisco, so the orientation of cars remains consistent.
From north to south, Nippon Sharyo five-car gallery consists are arranged as:. From north to south, Bombardier bi-level six-car consists are arranged as: Revenue train consists are made of single type of cars; the Bombardier cars are never mixed with the Nippon-Sharyo gallery cars. Of the Gallery cars, 66 are coaches and 27 are bike-accessible cab cars. Caltrans purchased the first 63 gallery cars in when it began subsidizing the commuter rail service.
The other 30 were purchased by Caltrain in , and the older cars were rebuilt by Nippon Sharyo around the same time. The first 17 Bombardier BiLevel Coaches were purchased as surplus from Sounder Commuter Rail in , of which 10 are coaches, 5 are cab-bike cars, and 2 are cab-wheelchair cars.
These Bombardier cars were initially only used on Baby Bullet express trains, but now also used on limited-stop and local trains. All five-car Bombardier sets were lengthened to six-car Bombardier sets using surplus ex-Metrolink cars in May Caltrain purchased 16 used Bombardier BiLevel Coaches from Metrolink in to cope with increasing ridership by lengthening certain Bombardier sets from five to six cars.
Four of the cars were put into service in May while other cars await their refurbishments. Caltrain has several cars used for track maintenance, such as JPBX , a track geometry car. Some other rolling stock is infrequently used for special service, such as on the Holiday Train, an annual non-revenue train decorated with lights, carrying volunteer carolers, and making limited stops for toy donations.
In August , as part of its Vasona light rail project, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority established its third transfer point with Caltrain at San Jose 's central train station Diridon. Muni intended to establish another light rail connection to the Bayshore station at Visitacion Valley in southern San Francisco for the T Third line, but this has been delayed indefinitely due to cost and design issues. The T Third opened on April 18, without the connection to Bayshore station.
Prior to the opening of the airport extension in a free shuttle bus operated between Millbrae and the airport. Caltrain sponsors many shuttle routes serving local employers on the Peninsula and in Silicon Valley. Caltrain was one of the first commuter rail services to add bicycle capacity to its trains, inaugurating bicycle service in by allowing four bikes on certain trains.
All bicycle rack-equipped cars have a yellow "Bike Car" sign posted by the door. Cyclists are required to tie their bicycle to the rack with the bungee cord provided, and must be racked so they do not protrude into the aisle.
Each rack can accommodate four bicycles. Because the bikes are stacked together against the racks, most riders place a destination tag, available from a conductor, on their bicycles to optimize placement and minimize shuffling. Cyclists must be at least six years old, and cyclists younger than 12 must be accompanied by an adult and capable of carrying their own bike on and off the train.
Bulky attachments such as training wheels, trailers, saddlebags, and baskets are similarly not allowed. The variation on bicycle capacity between trainsets has generated criticisms from the bicycling community, as cyclists may be denied boarding when a train reaches its bicycle capacity.
The Baby Bullets, favored by many cyclists, often use lower bike-capacity Bombardier cars and cyclists may have to wait for slower trains with higher-capacity gallery cars, or seek alternate transportation. Due to equipment rotation and maintenance concerns, Caltrain said in that it could not dedicate cars with higher bike capacity on trains with high bike demand. To provide an alternative to bringing bicycles on board the trains, Caltrain has installed bicycle lockers at most stations, and constructed a new bicycle station at the San Francisco station.
A bicycle station was open at the Palo Alto station from April to October , and reopened in February The initial pilot program launched in allowed up to four bikes per train for off-peak service, with bicycles were carried in the cab car northernmost car. Bicycle capacity was expanded to twelve bikes per train for all trains in , followed by a doubling to 24 bikes per train for all trains in Starting in , gallery cars were modified for bicycle service. By , Bombardier cars were also modified for bicycle service by partially removed seats from the lower level of the car, resulting in space to carry 16 bicycles per car.
It was suggested that Caltrain could increase bicycle capacity by removing some seats from bicycle cars. Initially Caltrain rejected this idea because some trains are operated at seated capacity  and the seat removal would take space from other passengers. However, in early Caltrain announced that it would be expanding bicycle capacity by 8 spots by removing some seats in the bike cars, bringing bike capacity to 40 bikes on gallery cars and 24 bikes on Bombardier cars.
With the removal of additional seats in , capacity rose to 24 and 40 bicycles, respectively. In the fall of , all Bombardier consists and some gallery consists substituted a second bike car for one of the passenger trailers. The remaining gallery consists continued with a single bike car,  resulting in a carrying capacity of 48 bicycles on Bombardier consists or 40—80 bicycles on gallery consists with one or two bike cars. Prior to , both Bombardier and gallery trains used five-car consists.
The morning after the kidnapping, authorities notified President Herbert Hoover of the crime. At that time, kidnapping was classified as a local crime and the case did not seem to have any grounds for federal involvement. Attorney General William D. Mitchell met with Hoover and announced that the whole machinery of the Department of Justice would be set in motion to cooperate with the New Jersey authorities.
Customs Service , the U. Immigration Service and the Washington, D. On March 6, a new ransom letter arrived by mail at the Lindbergh home. The letter was postmarked March 4 in Brooklyn , and it carried the perforated red and blue marks. A third ransom note postmarked from Brooklyn, and also including the secret marks, arrived in Breckinridge's mail.
The note told the Lindberghs that John Condon should be the intermediary between the Lindberghs and the kidnapper s , and requested notification via newspaper that the third note had been received.
Instructions specified the size of the box the money should come in, and warned the family not to contact the police. During this time, John F. Condon received a letter reportedly written by the kidnappers: It authorized Condon to be their intermediary with Lindbergh.
Following the kidnapper's latest instructions, Condon placed a classified ad in the New York American reading: Jafsie "  wrote a letter to the Bronx Home News. A meeting between "Jafsie" and a representative of the group that claimed to be the kidnappers was eventually scheduled for late one evening at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.
According to Condon, the man sounded foreign but stayed in the shadows during the conversation, and Condon was thus unable to get a close look at his face. The man said his name was John, and he related his story: He was a "Scandinavian" sailor, part of a gang of three men and two women.
The baby was being held on a boat, unharmed, but would be returned only for ransom. When Condon expressed doubt that "John" actually had the baby, he promised some proof: The stranger asked Condon, " On March 16, Condon received a toddler's sleeping suit by mail, and a seventh ransom note.
I come alone, like last time. The ransom was packaged in a wooden box that was custom-made in the hope that it could later be identified. Some sources credit this idea to Frank J. Wilson ,  others to Elmer Lincoln Irey. On April 2, Condon was given a note by an intermediary, an unknown cab driver. The man accepted the money and gave Condon a note saying that the child was in the care of two innocent women. On May 12, delivery truck driver William Allen pulled to the side of a road about 4.
The skull was badly fractured and the body decomposed, having been chewed on by animals; there were indications of an attempt at a hasty burial. It appeared the child had been killed by a blow to the head. Lindbergh insisted on cremation. Suspicion fell upon Violet Sharp, a British household servant at the Morrow home.
She had given contradictory testimony regarding her whereabouts on the night of the kidnapping. It was reported that she appeared nervous and suspicious when questioned. At the time, the police investigators were criticized for heavy-handed tactics. Following the death of Violet Sharp, John Condon was also questioned by police. Condon's home was searched but nothing was found that tied Condon to the crime.
Charles Lindbergh stood by Condon during this time. After the discovery of the body, Condon remained unofficially involved in the case. To the public, he had become a suspect and in some circles vilified. Condon's actions regarding the case were increasingly flamboyant. On one occasion, while riding a city bus, he saw a suspect and, announcing his secret identity, ordered the bus to a stop. The startled driver complied and Condon darted from the bus, though Condon's target eluded him.
Condon's actions were also criticized as exploitative when he agreed to appear in a vaudeville act regarding the kidnapping. The investigators who were working on the case were soon at a standstill. There were no developments and little evidence of any sort, so police turned their attention to tracking the ransom payments. Per a presidential order , all gold certificates were to be exchanged for other bills by May 1, He had given his name as J. During a thirty-month period, a number of the ransom bills were spent throughout New York City.
Detectives realized that many of the bills were being spent along the route of the Lexington Avenue subway , which connected the East Bronx with the east side of Manhattan, including the German-Austrian neighborhood of Yorkville. On September 18, a Manhattan bank teller noticed a gold certificate from the ransom;  a New York license plate number 4UN. Y penciled in the bill's margin allowed it to be traced to a nearby gas station.
The station manager had written down the license number because his customer was acting "suspicious" and was "possibly a counterfeiter. Hauptmann was arrested, interrogated, and beaten at least once throughout the following day and night.
Fisch had died on March 29, , shortly after returning to Germany. He kept the money because he claimed that it was owed to him from a business deal that he and Fisch had made.
When the police searched Hauptmann's home, they found a considerable amount of additional evidence that linked him to the crime. One item was a notebook that contained a sketch of the construction of a ladder similar to that which was found at the Lindbergh home in March John Condon's telephone number, along with his address, were discovered written on a closet wall in the house.
A key piece of evidence, a section of wood, was discovered in the attic of the home. After being examined by an expert, it was determined to be an exact match to the wood used in the construction of the ladder found at the scene of the crime. Lehman to face charges directly related to the kidnapping and murder of the child. Hauptmann was charged with capital murder , which meant that a conviction would result in the death penalty.
Judge Thomas Whitaker Trenchard presided over the trial. In exchange for rights to publish Hauptmann's story in their newspaper, Edward J. Reilly was hired by the Daily Mirror to serve as Hauptmann's attorney. Under today's Model Rules of Professional Conduct, promulgated by the American Bar Association , and in effect in New Jersey , a lawyer shall not, prior to the conclusion of representation of a client, make or negotiate an agreement giving the lawyer literary or media rights to a portrayal or account based in substantial part on information relating to the representation.
