Re: 2 pics from yesterday Baltimore Light Rail.

You did not read what I posted. The cars are railroad size, not streetcar size. They are 2 section articulated cars. A three car train is a city block long. They are called LRVs but light weight they are not. Since operations began in 1992 there have been 15 LRV vs automobiles/trucks and the LRV's win every time. The MTA has two small locomotives for emergency work that can only handle 1 LRV at a time.
