South Harbor Station
A train ends its run at the South Harbor station. These trains were built by Breda in the mid-1980s for the Green and Blue Lines. This one sports a new paint scheme with a wavy line in the blue band above the side windows, symbolizing the waterfront. In the background is a train in the old red/orange/white paint scheme.


An outbound train emerges onto ground level from the ramp leading down from the Red Line viaduct at right.
Tower City is visible in the background.

North Coast Station

Amtrak Station
An inbound train passes the Amtrak station. The light-rail tracks run between the station and the railroad tracks, so that Amtrak passengers have to walk across the light-rail tracks to get to and from their train!
The North Coast light-rail station is visible in the distance.

West Third Street Station
