We love the light rail cause when it fails it really fails! Nothing makes a person feel quite so helpless as being stranded at a transit stop. I'm sure glad they just gave that dickhead Mcfarlane another nice $6000 raise, he sure has earned every penny hasn't he.
So, what exactly was the "power issue" that led to Monday morning's MAX meltdown.
Over the weekend, crews spliced existing electrical wire to allow for
the tie-in of the new MAX Orange Line at the Jackson Street terminus of
the Portland Transit Mall.
"They thought they had it all worked out," said Roberta Altstadt, a
TriMet spokeswoman. "But when they tried to turn on the power this
morning, something failed. We're still trying to troubleshoot it to try
to figure out what's going on."
