In the Early Days

Unlike all the other photos in this series so far, this view dates to shortly after the line opened in 1981.  It was taken from upstairs at Anderson, then the southern terminal for the single line that went to downtown. 

Track for a major CP freight line is seen adjacent to the light rail route, as it is much of the way south from center city.   A much less-developed version of the Calgary skyline shows in the far distance.
