Waterfront Station

The train in this view waits to head outbound (away from the camera) at its downtown terminal, Waterfront Station.  Both the older two lines, the Expo and the Millennium, begin at this platform, and share multiple stops out to Columbia Station in New Westminster. 

This underground route heads briefly west and slightly to the north from Waterfront, with the tracks on two levels in an old and narrow former freight railroad tunnel.  The line gradually executes a greater-than-180 degree turn in the subway, so that when trains reach daylight at Stadium-Chinatown Station, further access to points southeast is straight ahead.
