Transit History

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.
