MTA TO ENERGIZE SIX MORE MILES OF LIGHT RAIL TRACK DEC. 24

 MTA TO ENERGIZE SIX MORE MILES OF LIGHT RAIL TRACK DEC. 24
 BALTIMORE, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- A second stretch of light rail track will be energized Tuesday, Dec. 24, the Mass Transit Administration (MTA) announced today.
 City and Baltimore County residents of Woodberry, Cross Keys, Mt. Washington Hills, Mt. Washington, Bare Hills, Malvern and Ruxton should be aware that test trains will be running on the line.
 The power will be turned on on six miles of track between the Woodberry station at Union Avenue and Clipper Mill Road and Ruxton Road.
 Neighbors of the Central Light Rail Line are advised not to play or walk on the tracks and be very cautious before crossing. "Never try to 'beat the train' and never climb the electrical poles," warned Larry Engleman, the MTA's safety director. "Trains are fast, so always listen for it with your eyes."
 Test trains will soon be stopping at the Woodberry, Cold Spring Lane, Ft. Washington and Falls Road Light rail stops, simulating light rail service that will begin next April.
 Since late August, light rail trains have been operating on a two- mile section of track between the Woodberry and North Avenue stops, the first section of track to be energized.
 In early January, the MTA said it hopes to turn on the power all the way to the Timonium stop, the northern terminus of the Central Light Rail Line at the Timonium Park-and-Ride lot.
 Shortly after, the transit agency said it plans to energize the track from the North Avenue stop south to Camden Yards and run test trains on Howard Street.
