Exciting news courtesy of our friends at RTD as they announce that the first 10 railcars which will run along the East, Gold, Northwest Electrified Segment, and North Metro Rail Lines have arrived at the Hyundai-Rotem plant in Philadelphia from South Korea. For more information on the cars (including why the shells were made in South Korea) check out our blog post from this past May.
For more information on the railcars, check out the Denver Transit Partners’ (DTP) website. DTP is RTD’s concessionaire for the EAGLE Project and will be the operator of all three EAGLE Project corridors once complete in 2016.
The cars will be fully completed in Philadelphia prior to being shipped to Denver sometime late next year for testing and eventual operation! This is a really exciting development as we await a new transportation mode choice throughout the Denver metro area!
