Looking South, Arlington Cemetery

Each Metrorail route is identified with a color: Blue, Red, Orange, Green and Yellow. 

The Blue Line, pictured here at Arlington Cemetery, passes through Virginia, the Capital and Maryland along a route from Franconia-Springfield to Largo Town Center.  This train has just come out of the subway from DC.  There is a mile or so of surface running before the tracks enter another underground segment. 

 In this photo trains in both directions are visible; it was a very rainy day.  Entry and exit from each portal anywhere on the system is accompanied with a warning toot from the train's horn.
