District Streetcar : Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3? (Video)

This happened last month, but I wanted to make sure I posted it here at some point. This is a very short video of the DC Streetcar being tested on the rails of  H Street NE. The District has one of three cars it will use for the inaugural H Street route so far. You can follow the progress of the second car as it makes its way across the country to DC via Twitter hashtag #trackthetrek. The first route will connect Union Station to the corner of Oklahoma Ave and Benning Rd NE. That's only 2.4 miles, but the first wave plan is for a system of 31 miles of track all over the District. We're just getting started! Anyway, here you go. Get excited!
