Atlanta Streetcar test run and update

Instagram user (and my neighbor) Sharon Gavin shared this wonderful little video of the Atlanta Streetcar making its first test run under its own electric power last night.

Apparently the test was a success. The streetcar made it around the 2.7 mile loop and stopped at all the platforms on the way. Next up: two more test runs next week, followed by driver training and a safety education period. The streetcar should be ready for passenger service by the end of the year.

There’s a great resource page with streetcar safety tips here. One tidbit: “a Streetcar traveling at 20 miles per hour takes almost 60 feet to stop” — so don’t expect these things to be able to brake quickly if you’re trying to be an aggressive driver (or pedestrian or cyclist) trying to cut in front of them.

Honestly, just this little video clip is really exciting for me to see. I’m biased because I live a block away from the line, but seeing it run on the track under its electric power makes it seem real. This is actually happening.

Last night, a streetcar ran on electric power on an Atlanta street for the first time since 1949. And it did so on Edgewood Avenue, where the first electric streetcar in Atlanta ran in 1889. That’s some cool stuff.

Haymitch + giving Katniss advice

“Human beings took our animal need for palatable food … and turned it into chocolate souffles with salted caramel cream. We took our ability to co-operate as a social species … and turned it into craft circles and bowling leagues and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We took our capacity to make and use tools … and turned it into the Apollo moon landing. We took our uniquely precise ability to communicate through language … and turned it into King Lear.

None of these things are necessary for survival and reproduction. That is exactly what makes them so splendid. When we take our basic evolutionary wiring and transform it into something far beyond any prosaic matters of survival and reproduction … that’s when humanity is at its best. That’s when we show ourselves to be capable of creating meaning and joy, for ourselves and for one another. That’s when we’re most uniquely human.

And the same is true for sex. Human beings have a deep, hard-wired urge to replicate our DNA, instilled in us by millions of years of evolution. And we’ve turned it into an intense and delightful form of communication, intimacy, creativity, community, personal expression, transcendence, joy, pleasure, and love. Regardless of whether any DNA gets replicated in the process.

Why should we see this as sinful? What makes this any different from chocolate souffles and King Lear?”
