Take a ride on the Green Line between Buckner and
North Carrollton/Frankford stations, November 2010

Take a ride on a DART Rail test train as it makes a complete run between Buckner Station and North Carrollton/Frankford Station.
Fifteen new Green Line stations will open on December 6, 2010, completing the 20 station, 28 mile project.

Be safe and watch for test trains along the new sections of the Green Line, between MLK, Jr. and Buckner stations on the southeast corridor and between Victory and North Carrollton/Frankford stations on the northwest corridor. While fences restrict access to most of the rail corridor, it's important to be aware that the rail line is active, with trains traveling up to 65 miles per hour depending on their location. The train at-grade crossings on the Green Line are clearly marked with signs, red flashing lights and crossing arms that come down prior to the train's arrival at the intersection.
