They are fun to ride.However being 6'3" tall they are a bit cramped!  My only regret was not riding them at night!!!

Cool views...only noticed one signal but I'm guessing there is some type of centralized control and/ or manual route lining. But how do they run on each other's bumper as shown in the video? All movements are at Restricted Speed? Looks like a fun trip.

not sure but they tend to run spread out by a minute or two but can get bunched up in threes and fours in heavy traffic

one thing i did notice when they run over  cross tracks or switches  or joints,the vibration goes right through the body of the tramcar and into the seats  ,a rather jarring experience   i dont think they have strong springs on their trucks but adds to the ride and is enjoyable
