This week's theme was that each one stations featured had been served solely by the Purple Line. 9 of you figured that out.
This image reveals the northern portal at Grosvenor. Few outside stations have a tunnel portal instantly adjoining to the platform. Grosvenor is one. This station is distinguishable due to the terminal supervisors' sales space situated on the northern finish, essential due to the Grosvenor turnback.
18 of you knew this one.
The second picture reveals the plaque figuring out the artwork situated on the northern entrance to Dupont Circle. The poem etched into the granite across the rim of the station entry is named “The Dresser” by Walt Whitman. If you’re acquainted with the poem, this one ought to have been straightforward.

Picture 5 reveals directional signage within the mezzanine at Shady Grove.

The situation of the skylight above and the fare machines on the far wall are different clues. Additionally, as AlexC famous, the blue plywood wall that has been put in for building of the escalator cover is mirrored on the pylon.
A number of of you had been impressed to guess Rockville due to the bus signage seen within the background, directing you to the Q1 and Journey On 46. This was unintentionally insidious. There are literally two stations served by the Q1 and the 46, with the opposite being Rockville. Nonetheless, the 46's service to Shady Grove is proscribed, and I didn't notice that bus timetables don't present Shady Grove as a timepoint. Nonetheless, the web page for the 46 does embody Shady Grove as a terminal.
Whereas a few of you be aware that we typically don't characteristic the identical station greater than as soon as, you might be appropriate. Nonetheless, that's not truly a rule, and now we have certainly featured a station greater than as soon as in every week earlier than (and may sooner or later). You need to go primarily based on the clues introduced, and never assume a station can't be featured greater than as soon as.
