How light rail might look on the Eastside

This is how rail transit might look on the Eastside railroad near downtown Bellevue in a few years. The main difference is that Eastside Railroad Now's proposal calls for initially using using self-propelled DMUs (diesel multiple units) instead of electrically powered vehicles in order to minimize cost and implement the service as quickly as possible.
