It would be nice if Colorado Railcar updated their site, they have not done so since November, so I was kind of worried. They should have some more demonstrators to lease to systems for testing. On our Everettt-Seattle commuter rail line, ridership at first was not what it was expected, but it is growing. The track is relatively flat, and is a 3 car train plus locomotive. The DMU made sense. I even emailed a talk show host who was critical of the train about the CRC DMUS, never heard back. I guess he was afraid of losing even more listeners if he suddenly had an idea to make SOUNDER better.
