Look out here it comes–
a Jerusalem light rail train is running on Jaffa Street near the Machane Yehudah market, the shuk.
In the city center, there are lines to fill out applications
for the photo ID cards to be used on the trains.
The test trains are getting longer,
signs are up,
traffic signals are ready,
have been removed.
The once over-crowded and busy Jaffa Street is ready;
so quiet… it seems almost deserted.
The trains are running and the tickets are being sold, but no passengers are allowed on the trains yet.
When will it be a working system?
Will the crowds come back to the city center?
A new month is beginning, a new season, and possibly a new era.
Stay tuned…as the saga continues.
