This one is, by now, a couple weeks old… but I’m still super-excited to link to this super-cool update/photo from Sound Transit.
Here’s the photo and text, reproduced below:
A Look Ahead
This week Seattle got a preview of future Link light rail service. This photo captures the first tests of a two-car train operating under electrical power. Trains will run with an operator in the front car controlling speed, braking and operations functions. These tests confirmed that the communications and controls between the cars function as designed. Two-car trains will be used when Link begins providing passenger service between Seattle and SeaTac in 2009.
