This is coming from a dyed in the wool streetcar-supporter:

How are the planned streetcars any quieter than the modern streetcars in Munich? I've visited there, and the cars they have look a lot like the ones that are planned for DC, but one thing I remember about them was that our hotel room faced a quiet street with a streetcar line, and it was very loud and shook the ground when it went by. Since our hotel room didn't have a/c and it was hot, we had to keep our windows open and get woken up each time it went by.

The Green Line in Boston is even louder. Although I understand that they are more accurately described as light rail cars.

How are the proposed DC streetcars different? Should we be considering lighter versions for lines that travel through more residential neighborhoods?
