The Cleveland Red Line (metro) uses catenary as well. Among other networks Pittsburgh and San Francisco LR use catenary and high platforms at some stations.

I am not trying to be a dick...but some at grade stations use high platforms too, such as Sunnydale and Stonestown. But alas, we digress from the point of this thread, and I fault myself.

Looking at the overhead and third rail electrification it would most likely in North London on the London Overground route. I am guessing it is an old photo of Hackney Central Station?

Correct!

EDIT: The picture is from 2008, by the way; a too recent picture would be too much of a giveaway because of the bright orange branding everywhere...

Technically it is referred to (by the authorities in this case) it as "light metro" rather than light rail and the capacity is higher than most LR systems...
