In this view an inbound light rail
run stops at the Settlers Landing station on the Waterfront
Line Extension, while a bit further away and up above a Red Line
rapid transit car heads out
toward Hopkins Airport.
This area is immensely rich in electric urban transit history.
The light rail route is fairly new. The rapid transit line goes
back a half-century and more. And the lower level of the massive
viaduct over the Cuyahoga River Valley that dominates the scene
once carried a number of Cleveland's West Side streetcar lines
to and from downtown. There were trolley subway stations beyond
both ends of the structure.
