Crossing at Mountain View

The Mountain View line goes in part along the median of Tasman Dr., and then takes off on its own right of way, passing by the large NASA Ames facility, and a huge Lockheed Martin industrial complex.  There are some grade crossings at busy streets and across freeway entrance and exit roadways in this area.  There is also some single-track running. 

This scene is also from Downtown Mountain View, on a sunnier and warmer day than depicted by the previous image in this series.  The Silicon Valley economy has had it ups and its significant downs in the last decade, and VTA is struggling to retain passenger loads even as its system has expanded.
