Soon After Opening

This photo is from 1980 -- the rail system was very new at the time.  Views of freight activity provide added rail interest in locations such as here along the East-West Line, or on much of the South Line to the Airport. 

The Avondale station on the East Line is the only station on the system equipped with four tracks.  Major yards are located nearby.  The line has been extended two further stops east to Indian Creek since this photo was taken.

The West Line features certainly one of the longest station names in the country, Dome/GWCC/Phillips Arena/CNN Center.
