Progress at United Streetcar

One of the perks of being a member of the board of Portland Streetcar Inc. is the opportunity to occasionally inspect our new vehicles under construction. The last time I did this I had to travel to the Czech Republic. This time it was just a carpool out to Clackamas.

The new vehicles that will expand our fleet for east side operations in various states of assembly!


The boxy looking thing in the center foreground is the propulsion system – this is an Elin unit that will go in one of the new vehicles. It actually mounts on the roof and is sitting next to an HVAC unit that will also go on the roof.
