    The North County Transit District on Thursday removed this magazine rack from its Carlsbad Village train station. The magazine, Southern California Gentlemen, contained photos of partially nude women

    Passengers at a North County train station will no longer be able to pick up soft porn before their commute, now that a racy men's magazine has been removed from the Carlsbad Village Station.

    Transit officials admitted they weren't aware that the magazine "Southern California Gentleman", which featured a model called "Big Boobs Vanessa", was selling for $1 inside a locked green dispenser on the station's train platform, according to our media partners the North County Times.

    A passenger told the paper that he had complained earlier this week and was told the district would investigate the sale of the magazine in the public depot but couldn't remove it because not enough people had complained.

    When NCTimes reporter Chris Nichols asked about the magazines, district officials removed them less than four hours later.

    "We did not know about that (magazine) in advance," Mike Mason, the district's business development director told the NCTimes. "We don't know who the distributor was. All I know is that it has been removed."
