|The Poet at night with interior blue lighting, 12/30/2013|
The Poet was created by Ben Olmstead & Simon Donovan for the Helen/Warren Streetcar stop.
The head is made up of letters of the alphabet and is illuminated from the inside with a blue light at night. Coincidentally, the UofA's Poetry Center building is just a block west of here. It's not as strong a blue color as my camera picked up when viewed by the human eye due to all the ambient light in the area from streetlights.
Track infrastructure is done. Two streetcars have been delivered so far and it is getting common to see them running down the route doing test runs. There will be a lot of test/acceptance/training runs as more cars are delivered in preparation for summer ridership. Looking forward to it!
