Washington Street

Washington Street in Hillsboro

Washington Street is the pre-empted area at the western end of the Blue Line. In this picture, you can see the pre-empts (all yellow horizontals since there are no trains moving through) on both sides of each intersection, though they’re a little easier to see on the left. Also in this picture, the way the overhead wire zigzags is clearly visible – remember this is done to evenly wear down the carbon shoe on the pantograph.
