Lambert East

The western terminal for the original line was briefly at North Hanley, two stations in from Lambert Main.  Service to the airport did not start until 1994, about a year after the line's opening further east.  Complex construction issues and matters to resolve relocation of graves from a nearby cemetery caused the delay. 

In this photo from inside an Illinois-bound train, our run is just about to end its single-track stretch, and Lambert East is just ahead.  That stop was added in 1998.    Passengers who have arrived on Southwest Airlines are waiting on the platform.
