Just weeks from now, Alstom Citadis Spirit trains will begin rolling along a stretch of track between Blair station and the Belfast Yard plant where they are being assembled.

They won’t pick up passengers just yet but instead will use the coming months to test and troubleshoot the fully automated LRT system in advance of its opening in 2018.
