As mass transit advocates either mope or work within the insanely small box metro Atlanta politics has constructed around the issue of transportation infrastructure to plot their next move in the wake of the failure of T-SPLOST, there is cause for celebration today. Thanks to the feds and the city, the Atlanta Streetcar is (still) coming, and this morning someone posted a photo of an attractive blue rail car of some sort that is purported to be the Atlanta Streetcar. You can sort through the rather thick discussion of whether this is, in fact, the Atlanta Streetcar and a host of related topics here.
