Crossing San Jacinto

The short private right of way south of Wheeler connects the Main St. portion of the line with two parallel streets with lanes reserved for one-way Red Line rails.  Outbound trains travel diagonally one block to reach Fannin St.   Inbound trains come  from one further block to the east, San Jacinto. 

In this view the train for UH-Downtown is just about to leave its right-lane running.  It must cross over the traffic portion of San Jacinto; the gate is down, traffic signals are red, and warning lights are flashing.
