Streetcar #401 in the wild at North yard. Testing (in the yard) was underway this afternoon.

I was referencing the ghosted image of historic density that is no longer present. 

ah, my apologies.

Sad to think that's the only way we believe we can recapture that sort of eclectic streetscape.

These will be the first to go next mass demonstrations. So they will be broke and shattered more then they are intact and CATS I guarantee you has no maintenance plan.

Vote no on any transit plan current incarnation CATS is a part of!

Maybe it is at all stops on the streetcar but I drove by the stop at Wesley heights way/bojangles and the map showing where al the stops were was on the glass wall of the overhang.   Wouldn’t be shocked if it was in a million pieces before the first rider ever gets on at that stop.  Just poor planning/design.  Glass anything anywhere on that streetcar line will be broken over time

For the first time in a while, seeing the streetcar rolling all morning today.

So is there any news? I have a friend coming to town next weekend, would love to ride it with them.

Because of the Federal funding deadline (8/31/21) CATS probably will open the Streetcar for Ridership a day or two beforehand.  My guess would be the Sunday prior.  (8/29/31).

Hit the F-150! Crosswalk BLOCKER!

At least during the break-in period, they're almost certainly going to need patrols between Church and College to keep people from idling/sitting on the tracks. Outside of that stretch the train is on interior lanes, but for those two blocks it's on exterior lanes. It blasts it's horn at all the people that stop to "run in" or whatever along that stretch. (It's happening a lot.)

I wish they’d show a little more restraint with the bell chime. Only need one chime per action. Leaving/arriving at station, entering intersection, etc. They are just ringing it every 5 seconds no matter what. In other cities they just do a single bell chime.  It’s all I hear late at night and early morning outside my window.  End rant lol 

I can’t wait to ride it though.
