First Made in USA Modern Streetcar

Oregon Iron Works is just completing the assembly of the first US-made modern streetcar:

...Oregon Iron Works, Inc., which was founded in 1944, has 400 employees, and fabricates barges, dams and bridges — and now streetcars.

...20 to 50 streetcars could conceivably be produced annually by Oregon Iron Works, creating 300 additional jobs for Clackamas County and Oregon.
