Cirrus, who is the builder? What are the specs on these? A little information would be great.

I should have known by the side window on the cab. This is the car used for Detroit's study, too. Though, just the other day, the developers of the line announced they are running the line catenary-free for most of the line, which I think would rule out the S70. There was also talk after the study of using ordering some CAF Urbos 3s with Cincinnati, but I think we missed the boat.

Looks good! Now, hopefully this isn't kept in storage for four years like DC's streetcar.

The track is 90% complete, and testing is scheduled for April with service to begin in May.

For the first three months, rides will be free. This is pretty exciting for us, as this is our starter line but expansion plans are already underway. This will link in with the BeltLine, which will be a huge game-changer for Atlanta.

Very sharp! How many stations does the streetcar line intersect with MARTA stations?

Just one with this starter line, Bob. Peachtree Center, which is the station for the core of the business/hotel district.
