With the Los Angeles area on the verge of opening a new light rail line — the Expo Line — here’s a photo of another recent addition to the Western U.S. expanding rail system. Take a guess where it was taken — the answer is after the jump.

The photo shows the light rail line in Phoenix on a bridge over Tempe Town Lake. The 20-mile line opened in late 2008.
