$700 million, 390 photos of Hiawatha Line

I took a second pass at the train this evening, and got up right at the front of the cab, took some great photos and even a couple videos. There were tens of thousands of people attending the mega-multiparty throughout the city. I couldn't step out and get pictures at the southern stations on Hiawatha because of the huge lines and restrictions on time when I was cruising north, attempting to meet my friends to get back to St. Paul.

Driving back, I found that Fairview Ave. is about 3.1 miles from the Lake Street station, and the St. Paul border is 2.6 miles. There is a new bus route starting this week, the 53, which will take people along Marshall Ave. into Minneapolis, but it only stops 4 times in Minneapolis before getting to the station. Actually, that means that when I want to go downtown without paying an express fare, I can take just that line, although it takes quite a walk or getting dropped off by someone. If only they cruised up Grand right to the station...

The photos are importing right now. I don't have time to put everything together, and I am going out for another round tomorrow afternoon. I'll get some pics up here later. More to follow.....
