New bike lockers at Burke VRE Station - Update with new photos

Burke FABB member Alan Young reports on the new bike lockers at the Burke VRE Station:
Bike lockers at Burke VRE Station
Great news as Fairfax County responds to requests to make cycling to transit centers easier and more convenient! FCDOT has just placed 10 new enclosed bike lockers at the Burke VRE Station in Burke Center. Burke VRE Station, home to VRE, Amtrak (yes Amtrak!), and Express Buses to Tysons and the new Silver Line, now has covered bike racks in the parking garage, racks at the Station steps and now new secure bike locker storage to choose from as bicyclists consider their options.

Burke VRE Station now has easy bicycle access via the Burke VRE Trail, Roberts Parkway and Burke Center trails. If you want to save yourself the cost of a car, try a bike! If you want to rent a locker, $60 a year, send an email applicant per the FCDOT website (the website does not list Burke VRE station, but the lockers are available).
Update: Allen asked for photos of the existing bike racks at the VRE station:

This is wonderful news. I've been pushing for bike lockers at VRE stations for about 20 years, and this is the first such installation apart from VRE stations located near Metrorail stations. Can someone post photos of the bike racks at the Burke VRE station?
