Streetcar Opening: Photos

Cross-posted on The 42 Bus
End of the line: Oklahoma Ave NE. Our trip from Union station to Oklahoma Ave took 21 minutes.
My best guess: no fares until 2017.
Maybe people are catching on: park inside the red lines.
There are only 8 stops for now.
The car barn and maintenance facility aren't quite complete just yet. 26th & Benning Rd NE.
Saturday's trains were packed with curious riders, young and old. Lots of kids, because who doesn't love trains?
The streetcar "turning around" (really just the operator moving form one end of the train to the other) near Benning Road bridge.
