New pictures give the best view yet of Oklahoma City's streetcars
New images released Tuesday show Oklahoma City’s first two streetcars outside the manufacturing plant where they are being prepared for shipment.
Cars No. 1 and 2, both in the “redbud” color scheme, were photographed as snow fell at Brookville Equipment Corp. in western Pennsylvania.
Car No. 1 is expected to arrive in about a month, said Doug Smith of Jacobs, the engineering consulting firm managing development of the MAPS 3 streetcar.
The nearly $5 million streetcar will delivered to the recently completed streetcar maintenance facility at SW 7 Street and Hudson Avenue by Silk Road Transport.
The New York trucking company specializes in transporting light-rail cars, streetcars and large buses.
Shortly after Car No. 1 arrives, testing is to begin on the Hudson Avenue track between between SW 4 Street and the new maintenance facility.
