TRAX began operation on the Sandy/Salt
Lake line in late 1999.
This photo is from several months after that, from the first springtime of
the route's existence.
It is a Friday evening, and the skies are very much threatening.
An out-of-service train rests beyond the southern terminal.
Rails continue further out, as freight traffic happens by here when
TRAX is not running. The electrification ends a couple of poles ahead. Current
planning has TRAX continuing along the freight route, which the Utah
already owns, out to Draper.
