Construction Gallery - Las Vegas, Nevada.
March 22-24, 2002.
Rosie Jones isn't a TMS member, but she graciously accepted a photography assignment from friend and co-worker Kim Pedersen on her vacation weekend to Las Vegas. Great work Rosie, thanks!
A pylon hole being drilled in the Sahara Hotel area.
Also, here's our first look at the hammerhead supports for the dual guideway!
These images were taken at the intersection of Karen and Paradise Road.
The pylons sport clean lines with "deco" line trim.
Bet ya can't guess which hotel this part of the track will be near!
The spur line guideway is in. Also visible is the switch platform which will be outside the OMSF (Operations Maintenance and Storage Facility). Downtown Las Vegas, a second phase destination, is seen in the background.
