A friend of mine gave me this link to some photography work and comments written by a St. Petersburg (Russia) engineer on a visit to a recent LRT system in Lyon, France. The Rhone Express goes to the airport and shares tracks with a streetcar in some sections. Although I cannot read Russian, the pictures are informative. If you do read Russian, I am told the analysis is very interesting covering architecture and the physical structure of the line. Also, please see the Youtube videos from another source. I like the pictures of the grass growing between the rails. Wish we had this in New York City!
