Well technically the first Brown line trains were Matra from France while the later trains were from Canada . Made by Bombardier.
I like the Matra trains better. CAn't understand why DORT (dept of rapid transit) couldn't bury the hatchet with Matra, especially after Siemens bought Matra.
Guess those law suits cut deep.
Are the Matra trains still running? They were shut out for some time for remapping of software after Bombardier took over the line.
@Chris. Yeah the Brown line Michelin tires were often past 5 years old when the line finally got moving. And tires are no good after 5 years even if never used in many cases.
Must be a bitch when one tire blows on those suckers.
Imagine your job is to check the air pressure on those tires daily?
