Woop woop — I’ve been sent some photos of Vancouver’s new Bombardier streetcars, from intrepid transit photographer David Lam!

Check out all the pics in this gallery, over at the Trans-Continental photo site.

The streetcars arrived this morning from Brussels, Belgium, and they’ll be running on the Olympic Line—that’s the demonstration streetcar line that will operate during the Games (January 21 to March 21, 2010). It’s a project from the City of Vancouver and Bombardier.

And our congratulations goes out to the City! We’re excited to see the streetcars arrive, and excited to see how the project goes, as it’s a rare opportunity to try out streetcars in our region.
