Baltimore Central Light Rail Line - Photos 1-6

Here are 6 photos of the Central Light Rail Line, taken on December 26, 1997.


Above, train awaiting departure at Cromwell Station, which is the Glen Burnie terminal. There is a large free park-and-ride lot at the station.


Above, road near Ferndale, Md. I'm looking out the front windshield of the train. Notice the overhead catenary lines. They supply the electric power to the train.


Above, train is stopped just short of the Baltimore Harbor bridge. Actually, the bridge crosses the Middle Branch of the harbor. You can see downtown Baltimore in the background.



Above, my train is still stopped, and here comes the southbound train that just traversed the one-track harbor bridge.


Above, entering the harbor bridge (Middle Branch of Baltimore Harbor). The high-level bridge is the ramp from I-395 SB to I-95 EB. The mid-level bridge is the rest of I-395, which is the Interstate spur from I-95 to downtown Baltimore.


Above, northbound on the harbor bridge. The high-level bridge is the ramp from I-395 SB to I-95 EB.
