DART successfully completed the first light rail test train into Irving as it traveled the five mile section between Bachman Station and Irving Convention Center Station on April 9, 2012. The first section of the 14-mile Orange Line opened July 30, 2012. The initial tests were for train movements, the overhead electrical system, and vehicle clearances. This was all in advance of the start of integrated testing and safety certification.
