Train cars arrive for international terminal
By A.B. Snedeker

The Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal reached another milestone on October 4 as the first of 10 new cars for The Plane Train arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson.

The new 40-foot-long, orange automated people mover (APM) car was assembled in Pittsburgh and shipped via flatbed truck to Hartsfield-Jackson. Engineers and technicians from manufacturer Bombardier were on hand to unload the 34,500-pound APM car.

The 10 new Plane Train cars will be placed into service when the international terminal is complete in spring 2012. The 12-gate international terminal will connect to the existing Concourse E via an extension of The Plane Train, creating a 40-gate international travel complex.

The other Plane Train cars will arrive from Pittsburgh throughout October.
