Unfortunately, it was not done in Ada.

        Which reminds me, I almost took a consulting gig with the then
        "Union Switch and Signal" in Pittsburg. They were going to do the
        software for the Green Line in LA, in Ada. Does anyone know if that
        project ever "flew". (I had heard that the two managers that I
        interviewed with left the company, so .... I interpreted that to be
bad
        news.)
