It is just before the afternoon weekday rush-hour, and
tracks near 12th & Imperial Transit Center are busy with parked "Out
of Service Trains" in this image. The system's main yard is
located nearby, to the right.
The Orange Line starts its run some yards behind
the location of the photographer. After completing the downtown circuit,
trains wind up on Commercial St., heading outbound away from the camera, to
the left of the white building in this scene.
