As promised, I made my way to MacArthur Square Station to be at Light Rail Safety Day, and what an event it was. For the first time, the General Public was invited to see the inside of the Siemens S70 LRV (see datasheet for Charlotte, who shared their purchase order with HRT to reduce costs).
The biggest question of course was “when will it open” which of course we do not have a final answer for right now. HRT’s President and CEO Philip Shucet recently gave a very honest answer, which may be read on Vivian Paige’s blog.
I took several pictures and may be viewed on Flickr
