A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
speaking of streetcars.... why do they look like they're 30 years old? the paint on the outside is faded in some panels, to the point where parts of the car look orange, and other parts red. they look like they've led a pretty hard life for their relatively young age.
Just the usual DC lack of maintenance Poo.
damn! i guess it's true that you can't take the streetcar to the car wash, like you can the buses. wait... what...? wherever they clean the buses, cuz they look *a lot* better than the streetcars.i'm not judging the whole infrastructure/urban transportation thing, i'm merely making a shallow judgement call on appearance.that is all.
the reason is simple. The faded ones(small headlights) were Skoda Inekon Trio models purchased in the Czech Republic in 2008. They were stored there for a while and then brought here and stored outside. The newer Oregon cars were purchased much later and aren't as faded. It should tell you a lot about DC when it takes almost 10 years to get a short streetcar line running.
