Oregon Iron Works and subsidiary United Streetcar received an order for two public transit cars from the District of Columbia's new streetcar line.

The cars will be added to a list of contracts totaling 15 cars. The streetcars are being built for lines in Portland and Tucson in addition to Washington, D.C.
"This announcement is great news for Oregon manufacturing," said Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., in a statement. "(It) will create much-needed jobs in Clackamas County. I can't wait to take a trip on the Oregon-made streetcars in our nation's capital."
