Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility takes shapeRTD's new commuter rail maintenance facility in Globeville is nearly topped off with its structural steel. By autumn, it will be enclosed for the start of interior work. See the progress on the facility, at 48th Avenue and Fox Street, in this slideshow.
The building and the railyard in front of it will be the nerve center for RTD FasTracks' new commuter rail lines. The facility in Globeville will be twice the size of the Elati Light Rail Maintenance Facility off South Santa Fe Drive in Englewood. Different than light rail and brand new to the Denver metro area, commuter rail vehicles are larger and operate at higher speeds than light rail.
Eagle P3: Halfway to Opening DayThe Regional Transportation District (RTD) celebrated another milestone on the FasTracks program. The Eagle P3 project, which comprises three commuter rail lines and a commuter rail maintenance facility, is halfway to completion and marked the occasion with a public event on Aug. 22, 2013, at the South Platte River Bridge construction site.

The three lines are the East Rail Line to Denver International Airport, the Gold Line to Arvada and Wheat Ridge, and the first segment of the Northwest Rail Line to south Westminster. These three lines and the new commuter rail maintenance facility will open in 2016.
Video: First Run of the New Commuter Rail CarRTD's new commuter rail car made its first run under its own power in May at the Hyundai Rotem plant in Changwon, Korea. Here is a video made on that rainy morning.
This video shows how much construction is going on in metro Denver on the Eagle P3 project. It's a spring time update on what's happening with the Gold Line, the Northwest Rail, the East Line and the Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility.
