The art of transit

photo by Ray Thompson, via submission

Metro equipment records specialist Ray Thompson took this photo of a sunset earlier this month at the agency’s Division 2 maintenance yard in downtown Los Angeles at 15th and San Pedro, next to the 10 freeway. Very nice. We also featured a nice shot of the yard taken at night last week.

Nice shot of streetcar tracks being reconstructed in the Roncesvalles section of Toronto. That’s not exactly a very wide street, eh?

Looks like it was a beautiful fall day in Evanston, where this image of the Chicago El — here running at street level (gasp!) — was taken on Sunday.

With all the hub-bub last week about the selection of a route for the Westside Subway Extension, I thought this might be a good day to post a photo of the original Red Line construction. Here’s a link to a whole set of construction photos that Metro’s library has posted on their Flickr page.

That’s a view looking east from the bridge over La Brea for the Expo Line, taken a couple of weeks ago. I thought given the main topic of today’s Board of Directors meeting — building more transit, i.e. the Westside Subway Extension and Regional Connector — this image was an appropriate pick for pic of the day.

The photo is a cyclist reflected in a puddle — a good idea well executed by Amsters@m in the city of Amsterdam. More of his work can be seen on his blog, Amstersam.
