Ordering Ahead

We’re still waiting for the check from the Federal Transit Administration (amazing how the bureaucrats can keeping you hanging even after the Secretary says he’s giving you $75M), but City Council today authorized contracts for the two long lead-time items for the Streetcar Loop.

Now on order: 6 shiny new streetcar vehicles from Oregon Iron Works and rail from the one mill in Austria that rolls the form of T-rail that we prefer (yes, we’re trying to figure out how to get an Oregon vendor for it).
