UMTA takes a tough line on grants . . . but LRT wins through in Buffalo
Though UMTA rejected last December a grant application by Dayton, Ohio, to build a 20-km LRT line, Buffalo got the green light on June 10 for its 10-km first phase after replacing costly city-centre tunnels with surface operation of trams along a pedestrian mall 249
"LRT can offer an attractive level of service at significantly lower capital cost" UMTA Administrator Robert E. Patricelli outlines current US policy on light rail schemes, and sets out the new guidelines to be followed by cities considering major investment in mass transit 251
Edmonton at the half-way stage
While discussion and planning of proposed light rail networks continues in the US, Edmonton has gone ahead with construction and its initial 7 km route is due to open early in 1978. The standard Frankfurt U-2 articulated car has been chosen for the first fourteen trains 253
Eastern Europe leads in tramcar standardisation
Michael Taplin describes how progress in standardisation has been achieved through strong central planning. Czechoslovakia and the USSR now supply 90 per cent of all tramcars for East European undertakings 255
Dutch cities begin to develop the tram A long period of decline eliminated trams from all but the three principal cities of Holland, but these networks are now being expanded, and Utrecht is planning a new line 259
Vienna U-Bahn will have automatic train control
The next two years will see progressive introduction of U-Bahn services over several short sections to give a total of 13.7 km in operation by 1978 263
BR's Class 313 is first of standard inner-suburban EMUS
64 EMUS now being delivered for BR's newly-electrified Great Northern suburban lines are the first of a long line of similar trains which will replace existing inner-suburban stock on most of BR's commuter lines 265
