The Qianmen trams are finally going to start running! According to that report, all is ready and they’ll go into regular service on New Year’s Day. I’ll be up in Yanqing then, of course, but I think I’ll sneak off one afternoon after we get back to check out the trams.
Why? Because there’s something fundamentally cool about trams, that’s why. Even if they are just tourist attractions that run a mere 800 metres.
