Jean: Look out!
Gordon: Don’t worry. That’s just a light rail train. The new light rail system shares the road with street traffic.
Jean: Phew! For a second there I thought we were going to collide with it.
Gordon: Didn’t you see the operator seated at the front of the train? She watches out for other drivers.
Jean: I didn’t know they have operators. I thought they were automatic.
Gordon: No, they’re not like some forms of rapid transit.
Jean: I see now that they ride on tracks and are powered by overhead electric lines.
Gordon: That’s right.
Jean: I’d like to give light rail a try.
Gordon: Really? Well, there’s no time like the present. I’ll take you to the nearest stop. There’s the platform over there.
Jean: But I thought you agreed to give me a ride into the city.
Gordon: And deprive you of a new travel experience? Never!
