Happy Birthday Washington Metro

From nycsubway.org

wimg_30544.jpg Today's the birthday of the Washington Metro. Construction on the Red Line began with a groundbreaking ceremony on December 9, 1969. The first part of the Red Line opened on March 27, 1976, between Farragut North and Rhode Island Avenue (5 stations opened on 4.6 miles of line). Passengers rode for free for the first two days of service.
