2213 at 4th Street & 7th Avenue

Calgary Transit operates a light rail service using these Siemens-Dwag U2 2-car 6-axle articulated units which run on standard gauge drawing 600 volts DC from the overhead. The outer trucks have both axles powered and the centre truck (under the gangway) are non-powered. These high floor units require platforms for loading and unloading. Part of the system operates along roadways and some is on a private right-of-way.

Unit 2213, from the 2000-2001 batch, heads towards "City Centre" along 7th Avenue at 4th Street on Friday May 20th, 2005. The 2201 series are fitted with A.C. traction motors.
