This view shows a different and more garish color
combination than was seen
in the line's original paint schemes. The northbound
car is crossing eastbound MAX at SW 10th Ave. and SW Yamhill St. in downtown.
Representatives from other cities visited Portland early on in the line's
operation to view this revived
concept in urban transportation. Not all too long after, in
transit-planning time, a second
city, Tacoma, opened a
short line with
cars from this manufacturer. Seattle started a route with
similar units late in 2007.
