TRACKING THE LIGHT Looks at North Carolina Light Rail

A Brief Glimpse of Charlotte’s Lynx.

It was a bright afternoon in Charlotte. I was curious to see this city’s innovative light rail system that uses Siemens built trams. Charlotte’s public transport goes by the initial’s ‘CATS’ while the Blue Line light rail is called the ‘Lynx.’

More tracks are being built, and a heritage style trolley is in the works.

Here’s a few views made with the Lumix LX-7.
