Detroit's Streetcars Are Here, Sorta: M1 Rail Finalizes Vendor

New, 1 comment

Not so fast, Czech Republic-based company that has built streetcars for Portland, DC, and Seattle. Turns out Detroit powers-that-be wanted to get a bit more regional with its hefty M1 Rail contract. Yesterday, the streetcar project announced it has entered into contract with Pennsylvania-based Brookville Equipment Corp. for six streetcars for use on the future Woodward Avenue line, dashing the dreams of Inekon Group honchos everywhere in the Czech Republic. —Leslie Youngblood
