These cars are the first time Brookville Equipment has produced a complete, new streetcar and they contain innovative technology that allows them to operate wirelessly. I know that they have kept the Brookville technicians very busy working out the bugs. I've heard some of the DART employees say that at times the Brookville guys would kick everyone out of the maintenance facility, shut the doors and work on the cars. (I don't know if that still happens but it sounds like they still have some issues to overcome.) The U.S. lost its streetcar building know-how decades ago and we still struggle to produce a modern car.
