    The escalator takes three minutes, so trains arriving in less than three minutes do not appesr on the board at street level. If the next train showing is a long time off, sometimes it pays to walk.

    Doors open on the left. The only exit can be found at the center of the train.

    If you waiting here for the C2 to PG Plaza you better off catching the train. Those drivers come when they want to.

    Another architectural feature of this station is separate tunnels & platforms for each direction, instead of the large, vaulted common room seen at most other underground stations in the Metro system.

    Service at Wheaton began on September 22, 1990. It was the northeastern end of the Red Line for nearly eight years, until the Glenmont station opened in July 1998

    Escalators travel with a speed of 90 ft per min +/- 5 % & are set at an inclination of 30 deg.

    Ride the longest continuous escalator in the western hemisphere! Get off of the Metro, ride up and down, then hop back on the train. You'll only be charged from where you entered to where you exit!

    If you're afraid of heights, skip the escalators and ride the creepy little elevator.
