Points of Interest

Houston has two types of Light Rail cars. The original fleet built by Siemens, and the new fleet built by CAF. They are similar but with some noticable differences. The CAF cars have much flatter ends then the Siemens cars. The destination signs of the Siemens cars are low, above the headlights, but below the operator. The CAF cars are above the operator.

The system also has 2 yards, which are also featured
