Now i'm curious, does the driver have to keep switching from end to end each run? Or does he get to drive backwards one run? Doubt they would have two driv...

Re: Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT)

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

This won't actually happen (though I wish it did), Thursday would be the time for Metro Transit to seriously consider 4-5 car consists.

Maybe one of you has more inf...
