We'll hide the comments so the early birds don't spoil the fun for the rest of you.

The answers will appear on Wednesday. Good luck!

This is the first time I might actually get some of these right:

1)West Falls Church. The new shuttle goes to Whiele, but the station in the image is clearly older than Whiele.

2)Federal Triangle? Maybe Smithsonian? Somewhere on/near the mall.

3)Vienna? Maybe Dunn Loring? The roof looks like some of western orange line stations.

4)Tysons Corner? The northern platform uses two smaller escalators (with a landing in the middle) rather than one big escalator. The station looks newish too.

5)East Falls Church. This is my home station, so I hope I get this one right! This is the view as you leave the station looking towards Sycamore Street.

1) West Falls Church ('sup down escalator)
2) Judiciary Square
3) White Flint
4) Up for trains, down for exit? That's gotta be something Silver...so...McLean?
5)East Falls Church is the only station I can think of that is in the middle of a highway AND has a road UNDER it, so let's go with that.

1. West Falls Church
2. Judiciary Square
3. White Flint
4. Tysons (I've never seen this one, but I assume this is the how they made the escalators work coming up from the north side of VA-7? I'm kind of embarrassed that there's a unique escalator installation I didn't know about)
5. East Falls Church

Image 1: L'Enfant. I'm guessing this is a sign for the 5A, so either L'Enfant or Rosslyn. But the escalator configuration isn't right for Rosslyn.

Image 2: Judiciary Square

Image 3: Nope.

Image 4: McLean? New escalators, a hint of a silver circle, and a mezzanine with trains above and exit below.

Image 5: West Falls Church. That road makes being a pedestrian somewhat unpleasant.

The first one is West Falls Church. Now that I've moved over to Wiehle, I'm already getting a weird nostalgia for my old station.

1. West Falls Church (looks like they still haven't taken down that Airport Shuttle sign down yet)

2. Judiciary Sq (I've been to the plaza above the station before)

3. College Park?

4. Arlington Cemetery?
