Year 2, Day 145: 22 March 2014

It's been a busy morning at track level, as work is done to bring the power lines from the substation out to the tracks. The work is focused on tracks 1 & 2, the southbound tracks on the western side of the embankment. The southbound trains have been diverted to track 3, while the northbound are on track 4, the outside track usually used by the northbound Purple Line at rush hours.

As thrilling as this view is, the better spot for catching the action is west of the tracks where workers and machinery create a busy scene along Glenwood.  

A smile and a wave from the crane operator!


And more sparks!
About an hour and a half after the first series of pictures were taken, a lot of progress had been made.
