So you will have at grade crossings with third rail power delivery? Aren't these things supposed to be grandfathered in not newly created?

Hitachi delivers first Miami metro train
29 Mar 2017



USA: Hitachi Rail Italy has delivered the first of 68 two-car trainsets that it is supplying for Miami-Dade Transit’s Metrorail network. The trainset arrived at Metrorail’s Lehman Center depot from HRI’s Medley plant in northwest Miami.

Dynamic testing is due to begin in the next few weeks. The second and third pre-series trainsets are undergoing tests at Medley, and are due to arrive at the Lehman Center in June or July

They haven't learned their lessons it seems. Reducing service as a reaction to dropping usership numbers means a further drop in usership numbers which justifies a further reduction in service until service levels are so low that usership collapses entirely altogether. Given that I wonder why they do not close down the whole system right away it would be more honest.

CRRC is making inroads on sales to US transit networks
China Daily Excerpt
November 8, 2017

CRRC has been on the express track lately when it comes to its business in the United States.

Train car maker CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Co, a subsidiary of State-owned China Railway Rolling Stock Corp, is racking up some big US contracts and looking for more.

CRRC recently was featured in an address to a business group by the Miami-Dade mayor, who is interested in the company's "trackless trains".

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez is pushing the Florida metro area to give up expanding its Metrorail in favor of high-tech buses made by CRRC, The Miami Herald reported.

Gimenez made Metrorail a major part of his re-election campaign last year, but on Nov 1, he decided to state a case for CRRC's trackless trains to run on dedicated lanes north and south of Miami.

"I believe we are on the cusp of unbelievable transformation, driven by new technology that will place us ahead of other cities because we are in the midst of creating a transportation infrastructure with those new technologies in mind," Gimenez told the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.

He then showed a video on high-tech buses as a cheaper alternative to rail, the Herald reported. "It's a solution we can implement now, not one that will take decades to complete."

The trackless trains are electric buses with interlocking cars that can hold about 300 passengers and are designed for platform-level access, group boarding and other rail-like features.

Gimenez said he plans to travel to China to visit CRRC. For the mayor's chamber presentation, the Dade County communications office used its own narration over footage provided by CRRC, which rolled out the trackless train in the summer, the Herald reported.

CRRC says the vehicles will be guided by autonomous technology, allowing them to "follow" painted lines.

Gimenez is a clown. The ongoing political games are screwing over Miami big time.

New Brightline express trains to roll in December, report says


Brightline plans to begin limited express passenger train service between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach in December and to Miami early next year, according to a New York-based international credit rating agency.

Fitch Ratings on Monday revealed the plans as part of its analysis of a $600 million bond issue being set up to pay for the higher-speed passenger service.

Brightline has declined to comment on the report, an exact start-up date, ticket prices, or schedules other than to say some trains would begin running before the end of the year.

The report said Brightline’s potential is good based on strong revenue generated by other passenger rail service elsewhere in the U.S.................

New Metrorail cars have arrived

Miami Metrorail: Hitachi test train at Government Center (Nov. 21, 2017):



New Metrorail Cars First Day in Service (Dec. 1, 2017):



Miami-Dade county government spent $313 million USD on 136 new trains from Hitachi that were locally built in a plant in nearby Medley, FL.
No Federal funding and the cars were fully paid for by the local 1/2 cent transit tax passed in 2002.
