Yard Track

The curving track in this photo leads into the northern end of the line's Riverside Maintenance Facility.  That good-sized complex lies between the Cedars-Riverside station and the next stop out, Franklin. 

The somewhat startling standard paint scheme of the light rail vehicles shows well in this image.   Bright yellow highlights the ends of the cars, but gives way to silver with red and blue accents in the middle.  Many cars are now painted in various advertising schemes, which change over time, and which are sometimes pretty extreme.

A portion of the Minneapolis skyline lies beyond, as is the case in many of the images ahead in this series.
