Oahu's biggest and newest public works project will also feature a lot of history, in each community where the rail project stops.
Architects have been busy getting ideas from the community on track with the elevated train plans.
During the planning process, community members said the look of each individual rail station is important.
Artwork reflecting each town will also adorn fences, murals and windscreens.
Waipahu's station will play up its plantation past.
"It is supposed to take on the plantation style, but I would like to see even more. The subtle design could be better embellished," said Waipahu resident Richard Borroneo.
Some of the artwork will even adorn the rail columns.
More than one hundred residents turned out on June 25 to look at the latest model of a Leeward Oahu rail station.
It gave many a better sense of what will be built in their community.
"This looks a lot more streamline and more cost effective," said Aiea resident David Poe.
Some also had final words of advice for designers of the Waipahu stop, a design that is nearly set.
Others just hope what they see is what they'll get.
"Looking at a model is nice. Any model can look nice until it is built. So we'll just have to wait and see how it turns out," said Pearl City resident Jim Shintani.
HART recently said it will spend $5 million for art at the rail stations. Read the full story here.
