Here are photos from our visit to the plant in Ostrava where the next three Portland Streetcars, of the new Trio design, are under construction.
We saw two end sections and a center section at the framing stage. We also saw several cars of a very similar design being built for Washington D.C. at later stages of construction.
A particular treat was the opportunity to ride one of the new Trio cars (of the flavor used on the Ostrava transit system). After riding the car on the streets of Ostrava, we came back to the test track and a number of the members of the delegation had the opportunity to drive the car, including this blogger.
