Right of Way and Infrastructure

Far ahead the tracks curve and rise, and curve some more and dip, as is common to much of the SkyTrain system.  The wide LIM rail adds a shine to the scene.  The powering "third rail" is to the right.

The third rail is a feature common to most of the continent's heavy rail lines, and very seldom is encountered on light rail.  The system is really a hybrid of light and heavy rail, and the argument can be made and sustained for its inclusion in either category of transit, were those to be the only two categories available for consideration.
