After crossing the pedestrian bridge, the track turns into the Hilton Property.
Before reaching the Hilton Station, trains will cross through a switch platform for a future spur line to the west side of the Strip.
Here are Granite workers pouring the last wall on the Hilton switch platform.
Moving northward along the Hilton property, the track makes some graceful turns on the way to the Sahara.
This view is from the sixteenth floor of the Sahara Hotel. To the left is a crossover switch.
There's more! Sept 22-25 page 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6
