SPECIFICATION FOR A STANDARD LIGHT RAIL VEHICLE

This article describes the development of specifications for a new light rail vehicle to replace the PCC streetcars now in service in several major U.S. cities. The specifications are for performance rather than for hardware. Standard overall dimensions are specified, but smaller versions may be produced if required. Each agency purchasing such vehicles can add its own requirements as an appendix to the standard specification.
