A French project to develop a concept for freight operations on light rail networks reached a milestone on the morning of June 13, when a tram was used to deliver merchandise to a retailer in St Etienne.
THE French city of St Etienne officially launched its new fleet of CAF low-floor LRVs on May 3.
THE first of 16 CAF low-floor LRVs for the 11.9km metre-gauge tramway in St Etienne arrived in the French city on July 1.
ST ETIENNE Metropolitan Council gave the go-ahead on April 1 to develop plans for the French city's third light rail line, which will extend the network to serve northern districts of the city.
THE French city of St Etienne has selected CAF in a €42m contract to supply 16 LRVs for the city's 11.9km light rail network, which consists of three lines and 35 stations. The vehicles are scheduled for delivery in spring 2016.
