Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Greenbelt Yard

From www.wmata.com:



The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) Board Planning and Development Committee today endorsed the expansion of three of its rail yards. The contracts total $141.4 million to modify the Shady Grove, Greenbelt and Brentwood rail yards as part of the continuing Metro Matters program to increase rail car capacity by expanding to eight-car train operations.

Modifications to the Greenbelt rail yard would include the construction of a new, two-story, 72,000 square foot facility and improvements to the existing rail car facility and the Shady Grove rail yard expansion would include the construction of a new four-track, 16-bay service and inspection maintenance facility. Electrical, mechanical, traction power, train control, and communications rooms and other systems would be modified to accommodate the new shop areas and tracks at Greenbelt and Shady Grove.
