If the Streetcars had Emotions ...

... this is what they would be feeling knowing they'd been uprooted from the idyllic Czech Republic--a country with damn fine public transport (and beer)--only to be sentenced to being "kept and maintained" (abused and neglected?) and possibly managed by WMATA.

Maybe the 1000-series railcar support group will give 'em some tips for survival in DC's harsh public transit climes.

Here you see one of the poor guys being offloaded from a ship in Baltimore this past weekend.

Wait until PETS (People for the Ethical Treatment of Streetcars) hears about how WMATA is handling these streetcars.
