This spring, Detroit will have a streetcar again. The QLINE is here and regularly doing testing up and down Woodward. We’ve captured its first test and some of its stations as they take shape. We’ve determined that y’all are going to ride it regularly (right?).

It’s been a busy winter for the QLINE since we last checked in. One of the streetcars was vandalized a few weeks back. The New York Times praised the streetcar and all the development and opportunity it brings with it (maybe too much praise?).

But more than anything, the bright red streetcar keeps making these test runs up and down Woodward, getting ready for its spring debut. The M-1 rail has posted a handy video to let residents know how to coexist with the testing and streetcar.

Have you seen the QLINE out and about? Send us your pics! Here’s what people are posting on Instagram when they see the QLINE in action.

Near the end of the line, at One Detroit.

It’s a thing of beauty, isn’t it?
