  1. Past hour
  2. Yesterday, I was on the Expo Line and the destination sign at the front of the train said Production Way University, yet this was a Waterfront bound train. This was a 2009 Mark II, can't remember the number of the train, though.
  3. Today

NEWS & NOTES Ducks goaltender John Gibson sustained an upper-body injury during Saturday's game against the Wild. Jets forward Patrik Laine is expected to return to full practice on Sunday. He has been out since January 7th due to a concussion. Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec set a franchise record after making 25 saves in the 2nd period. Senators have announced that Clarke MacArthur won't be returning this season. He has been out since training camp due to a concussion. Senators announced earlier this week that goaltender Craig Anderson could return just before or just after the NHL All-Star Break. Tonight's shootout attempt for Senators forward Tom Pyatt was the first of his career. Since starting 14-1-1 at home, the Canadiens have gone 2-4-2 over their last 8 home games. Islanders have won 3 straight and 8 out of their last 15 games, going 8-4-3 in that stretch. After winning 10 straight games in late November-mid December, the Flyers have gone a dismal 3-9-3 in their last 15 games. Coyotes rookie forward Christian Fischer made his NHL debut and scored his first NHL goal, which stood up as the game-winner. With the overtime loss tonight, the Stars to 2-9 in overtime this season. The Wild exploded for three goals in a span of 1:59 in the third period to pull off the comeback against the Ducks. Tonight marked the 2nd time the Oilers scored 7 goals in a game, both were against the provincial rivals. Tonight marked just 2nd time the Avalanche lost a game that's gone beyond regulation this season.
  5. GREATER OTTAWA AREA Lowest - 2-Way Tie at 96.9: Costco - Roydon Place at West Hunt Club Road - Nepean Ultramar - Innes Road at Pagé Road - Orléans Highest: 118.9 - ESSO - Island Park Drive at Wellington Street West - Ottawa Average: 107.9
  6. It was definitely not an unprovocative attack. They don't have mental issues otherwise they wouldn't be doing that job. One shall never fight with peace officers or the police either. It just escalates in a disadvantage against the individual and the court won't see it as an assault. The footage we see in the news isn't all. What happened before the fight? How much did they have to drink? People probably wasn't paying attention till it started.
  7. It was just an example of a mid-point that would be selected solely for the government to say we told you so. Fleetwood would likely be decent, but going all the way to Langley would increase ridership incredibly.
  8. I think Fleetwood will have decent ridership because Fraser highway is in the middle of community and people don't really need to transfer to get into Downtown Vancouver. The buses routes would need to be modified to better service the communties and the stations. So, I think the Provincial Government, the mayors, and TransLink would probably be smartful to study SkyTrain to Langley. Even if the ridership is not quite what they are expecting, I hope they would be smart enough to see why, if the problem is where the terminus is hopefully someone actually fixes it with an extension to Langley Centre with SkyTrain or LRT.
  9. I think they're doing them in Surrey to get MK Is/IIIs. The Millennium Line is now exclusively MK II trains (except for the odd exception during service disruptions) -- there are no MK Is or MK IIIs.
  10. But sometimes that doesn't work either, a la Sheppard Subway in Toronto. Build it short on purpose, say it doesn't have ridership, then say "oh it should've been LRT in the first place" when it should've been full length subway in the first place. Same thing will happen here. Someone will decide to build Skytrain to Fleetwood or something, then say "see, there's no ridership" because it doesn't really go any further than King George. The politicians only look at the dollar signs, not the actual service they are providing. On the other hand, while I am strongly in favour of Skytrain to Langley, I am kind of neutral to LRT for the L-Line. Sure, it'll be a beefed up 96 B-Line, but it's larger vehicles. I kind of see the LRT L-Line as a compromise position as long as you build Skytrain to Surrey.
  11. I've noticed they've started doing them on the Expo Line in Surrey again. Often the span of track they drive will include some switches, which is why Renfrew<->Rupert and Production<->Lougheed are popular.
  12. Actually that's a bug from the bus doing the N10 into the next service day. It always happens on buses assigned to that block.
  13. What is the world's longest transit bus route by distance? As long as it is consistently operated by a transit bus, not a motorcoach, and has regular service on a regular route and schedule (i.e. not once-weekly), then it counts.
  14. SkyTrain attendants regularly use short sections of the M-Line for hostler (manual drive) training. The ones I think are more common are Renfrew-Rupert, VCC-Commercial, Production-Lougheed.
  15. There is nothing to be found guilty or innocent of here, it's not a criminal case. It's all about money. The lawyers are going to get paid, who knows how much the Gillman's will get out of it. I hope they get nothing. If you don't want trouble, don't go looking for it.
  16. I fully expect Metro to test the New Flyer XE60, but why wouldn't Metro also test a manufacturer demonstrator of the BYD K11M? In fact, Metro is already ordering 251 more XDE60 coaches that will be placed into service starting in the Fall of 2018.
  17. Friday afternoon. 8609 was on the 36F 8611 was on the 60D 8612 was on the 36A 8614 was on the 84D 8613 was probably suppose to enter service too. It was moved from the new delivery spot but failed to enter service.
  18. Not planned to be in service this month. It will eventually arrive. We shouldn't be surprised that nothing is showing up. They cleared the production line and have to start fresh. The mad rush late last year shows Bombardier can do much better.
  19. For today, I rode units 7529 and 7560 on route 35 and 2298 on the 30. First Transit got more New Flyer C40LFRs from Sand Canyon base, but I don't give a damn on these buses due to the fact the NABI 40-LFWs are being replaced with those buses. I want more than just to ride natural gas... I want them!
  20. I rode units 11006 and 11043 on line 130, 167 on the Metro Blue Line, 220 on the Metro Green Line, 566 and 502 on the Metro Purple Line, 7620 and 7930 on the Metro Rapid line 740, 8621 on the 210, 7593 and 7552 on the 710, and 8146 along with 4159 on the 260. Fuck, there were demonstrators at Pershing Square, overcrowding on the Metro Blue, Expo, Red, Gold, and Purple Lines, detours on Downtown Los Angeles from the protests against Trump, and the shutdown of Union Station just after I left Patsaouras Plaza. I had to ride the City of Commerce Municipal Bus Lines unit 331 on the Citadel Express to leave that station with a huge mass of traffic on the road. In other words I don't give a damn on riding the OCTA New Flyer C40LFRs as a result of this opposition as well as I never got the chance to do a bus trip for over 3 weeks!
  21. I'd say it's unlikely they were rebuilt since it's only been a maximum of 7 years since they've been here.
  22. Untrackable so far.
  23. I've seen the usual two s200 keys around Crowfoot around 630 pm this week, but today is the first time I remember seeing any on Saturday
  24. I noticed the layer of plastic protecting the windows have been removed from the 10xx Nova's. Still on the 13xx Nova's. Is there any purpose to those things aside from protecting windows from scratchitti? Were they removed during rebuild?
  25. Screen, not dial. Also, why are people here are so condescending? It almost seems as if you're mocking me. All I was saying is that I personally think it's not a good idea to cover the TMAC screen. That's all. If the TMAC screen glaring his vision, then by all means cover it, but he has a habit of covering it, day or night. That's what I noticed, and I mean nothing more. I did not mean to start a fight by posting about the bus driver. I apologize for whatever got you upset. He brings a portable radio. I don't have a problem with bus drivers listening to music with earphones. I didn't know that. Thanks.
  26. It wouldn't take long now before it gets dirty from old man winter.
  27. No idea when but 8609, 8610-12, 8614 entered into service
