A Tram in the Black Forest


This U-Tube of a Karlsruhe TramTrain, going about its business in Germany’s Black Forest certainly makes a mockery of the ‘need for density’ claim by those opposing the Fraser Valley interurban. By utilizing existing railway infrastructure, LRT can penetrate into unpopulated areas very cheaply, thus creating a larger tram network, as well servicing far flung transit destinations.

Karlsruhe’s TramTrains are 21st century public transit philosophy of building large light rail networks, cheaply there by servicing both where people live and where people want to go in a simple no transfer journey.

Even though the following is in Germany’s Black forest, it could also be in the Fraser Valley!
