Expecting a Shiny New Streetcar

Today’s Trib has an article about ramping up Streetcar manufacturing at Oregon Iron Works.

But the more immediate news is that the first prototype vehicle is due to be delivered to Portland Streetcar’s maintenance facility (NW 16th and Northrup) TOMORROW MORNING at about 6AM. I hope to be there to get some photos.

Don’t expect passengers on board for a while though. The vehicle will need hundreds of hours of burn in before revenue service (think 4th of July).
