FrontRunner

The first run of the UTA FrontRunner train took place on April 26, 2008. UTA offered free rides from April 26-30. I took this set of pictures on April 30.

This double decker train provides service from Salt Lake City to Ogden.

My original intent was to stop at each of the stations along the route. As the train was standing room only, I only took pictures at the two ends of the route.
