US East Transit >Washington DC Metro
METRO CENTER

DC Metro

 The defacto hub of the DC Metro is here. It is the busiest station of the system. Here the busy Red line crosses over the busy Orange/Blue trunk line. This is a station of symmetry for the two ceiling vaults to cross. It is never a dull moment here!

I heard a platform attendant say this out of service train is the "money train" arriving on the lower level. (2/18/08 The 1st 2 cars of this train didn't have any seats but had racks instead and it did sit at one end of the station for a minute or two, maybe it was the money train?? (2/18/08)
