Update On Vehicle Manufacturing
Vehicles for the Cincinnati Streetcar are really starting to take shape!
CAF sent these photos from its manufacturing facility in Zaragoza, Spain. Finally assembly will take place at CAF USA's facility in Elmira, NY.
The vehicles are being constructed to precise specifications for Cincinnati's streetcar system.
