Streetcar Delivery / Unloading Video

Here’s video I shot of this morning’s delivery of the first streetcar from United Streetcar, LLC. The entire process took about two hours, edited here to just six minutes.

(Update: A higher-quality version hosted by Vimeo is available after the break.)

    great video! as a transit rider, i really appreciate all of the new vehicles we’re getting this year. my train-obsessed three-year-old also enjoyed it. he wanted to see it go, though. haha

    Thanks for making that, and I think you did a good job of it. I think this is a historical event in the streetcar world.

    Thanks for showing up to record that. I know I was sound asleep, so I’m glad I got to see it at least.

    Beautiful, though it would have been nicer seeing it roll off a flatcar instead of a trailer.

    It’s a shame they couldn’t just drive it from the factory.
