Finally, the Trio Cars

Picture052_25May07

I had the pleasure of riding one of the new Inekon Trio cars today (Vehicle # 009) for the first time today (at least on this continent). Apparently the safety paperwork finally cleared a couple of days ago, and they’re starting to go into service.

I’d like to take the opportunity to express my appreciation to the Streetcar maintenance folks who have been keeping a six-car operation going with only seven vehicles since last fall when the Gibbs extension opened. Incredible job.

Over the Long Weekend…

Portland Transport will be making a move to a new server.

I expect (hope) the site will be up throughout, but comments are likely to be turned off for a significant period as we relocate the database that drives the site.

I will put up a note when closing comments for the move.
