Red Signals Beyond

In July, 2009, all appears ready ahead for the forthcoming Gold Line extension to Atlantic in East Los Angeles; but the marker and red flag dictate that trains are not to progress beyond this point.  Crossover switches are visible ahead, and the overhead catenary can been seen veering westward along the new route.

The next five pages in this section show pre-opening aspects of the new portion of the line, as photographed that July -- about four months before the line began operation.
