This Space for Rent

Oooh, new railcars!

Tri-Met is buying a couple of RDCs to run on the westside commuter line. Officially they’re spares, but the lovely Colorado Railcar behemoths are apparently breaking down quite a lot, so the US$75,000/car cost of the (older than me) RDCs will be made up pretty quickly.

It’s a bonus that the RDCs look better than the Colorado monsters do.
