ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Two power substations each weighing 80,000 pounds were delivered to Atlanta to power the Atlanta Streetcar project on Saturday.

Siemens Inc. built the substations that will send the electrical current to the overhead wires for the streetcars.

Each substation is 40 feet long, 14.5 feet wide and 11 feet tall. They were installed at the Atlanta Streetcar Vehicle Maintenance facility, which is across from the John Wesley Dobbs Plaza.
