Light Rail Vehicles - LRT, ICTS, Monorail, and more
With tunnel boring now complete in Rennes for Ligne B, here's one of those beautiful scrolly-type picture-heavy webpages/articles about where they're at:

I love this line and can't wait to see it completed, since it's the world premiere of CityVal, the next generation VAL!

Bombardier's latest INNOVIA 300 APM opened today for trial operations in Shanghai!

This was a joint-venture project.

I love the new track system (first used on DFW Skytrain), which greatly simplifies the guideway construction over the older Westinghouse/Adtranz (100/200) system which is common throughout many airports.

RUMOR: New Monorail Fleet Has Been Ordered For Walt Disney World
The new fleet will reportedly be built by Bombardier of Canada, the same company that built the Mark VI trains for Walt Disney World

Squeeee!

I adore the MK VI's. But if they have to be replaced, there's no-one better suited to do it than Bombardier.

Hopefully they'll be built in Kingston!

. @doniveson @YEGMayorOffice  Thought you'd want to see the first @BombardierRail LRV loaded onto a rail car - set to begin its journey to #yeg. It will arrive right on time, in July!

I didn't expect them to be able to put all seven segments on one car! Impressive.
