Distant Skyline

The Red Line finally leaves Main St. near the Wheeler station, the last stop in the Midtown district.  More of the dense downtown skyline is visible in this scene than in the previous views in this series.  

Crossing barriers and train-specific warning lights make their first outbound appearance here.  At certain key locations from this point on the trains sound their resonant horns as they approach major intersections.
