Purple Car

The old freight rails, along with a spur switch, show up in this view of the purple car on Terry Ave. N.  The test unit was momentarily stopped, and it was easy to get a clear photo. 

Speeds along the route never amount to too much, with the cars capable of running at thirty miles an hour.  The short ride, with stops and traffic controls, is a slow one.  It will be interesting to see how well service is received in its first few years of operation, and how it helps to hasten and shape the dramatic changes occurring in the South Lake Union area.
