Lonely Shopping Carts

For months, commuters at the California Avenue train station have been treated to the sight of shopping carts dumped into the no-man's land between the station and Alma. I tried reporting this to Caltrain, which replied that this area is the responsibility of the the city of Palo Alto, not Caltrain, and they would forward the message. More months went by, and the abandoned shopping cars are still there. Noticing that one of them belonged to Country Sun, I reported it to that marked, and the person answering the phone responded with gratitude, saying that they would pick up their valuable cart immediately.
Two more months have gone by, and the carts are getting very sad indeed.
