A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
Thanks, Inked,Do you know when construction of the tracks is scheduled to resume?
I do not. Hmm...
Boy those things seem to run really run slow. I can't imagine anyone wanting to ride one vs. the buses at that speed.
9:33,They were just testing it. Pretty sure that isn't the top speed.
They were running it by wiring a bunch of car batteries to the car's power supply. When they're "plugged in," the streetcars can go 43mph.
When will the overhead wires be constructed?
What is the meaning of life?
Is there a chance that the tack could bend?
I spoke to some PEPCO workers, and asked how long it would take to put up the overhead power wires. They said given the foundation casings are laready installed, they could get all the poles in a few weeks depending if they do it with one crew or get several going.if they had 2-3 crews setting poles and 4 crews puling wire, it's a fast job.Now signalling may take a lot longer as all that needs to be qualified and designed and interfaced with the traffic signals. The big work imho is getting the turnarounds worked out.It'd be nice if they ran the eastern turnaround down to either Kingman Island or to the back side of the PEPCO plant. It makes it a lot easier to stretch the system to run out to Minnesota or benning road station and that's the ultimate goal if you want a real corridor on Benning.
