Before Departure

First-car passengers had a brief glimpse through the front window of this train waiting at Meadowview before the operator came on board and readied things for the inbound movement. 

The Union Pacific line parallels light rail to the right.  Massive electric poles tower over the much more modest overhead wiring for light rail.  The right of way still looks quite new; service had begun just a few months before this September morning in 2004.
