Approaching E 148th Ave.

An inbound train is several blocks away from the E 148th Ave. station in this view.  The transit signal on the pole between the tracks on the far side of the crossing is in the "--" position.  This indicates that trains are not cleared to cross the street.  The closer approach of the train will cause conflicting highway traffic signals to turn to red, and the train will then be authorized to pass on a priority basis.

There are eight stops along E Burnside St.  By the eastern end of that portion, Burnside has become a very busy thoroughfare, and the feel of the route is very different from that experienced here.
