  1. Today
  2. I don't remember seeing this earlier today, so it may have replaced another bus on the block, but 9208 did at least part of a 152/156/169/188 block today https://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus/9208
  3. That would be P3309. One of the fabric cushions is different on the right side priority seats. Also, H14044 has a fabric cushion and vinyl cushion similar to the one shown in Meraki's photo.
  4. I agree. We should let natural selection do its things. Unfortunately every city wants zero death rate. If they are going to do something about it, at least make it count. A headphone ban won't work.
  5. You've gotta be joking, thats gonna be difficult. Anywho, i believe there is also a C40LFR that has the same kind of thing going on, except with BC Transit fabrics, if i am not mistaking.
  6. I do remember they tried this once when I took a 85 in 2009-2010 and they had a announcements saying which route it is and where it was terminating, I also do know that some buses had (or still have) the ability to play audio outside the bus because some morning routes used to play Christmas music the week before the break, granted I haven't seen a bus do that in over 6-8 years when I make morning trips to school
  7. They should not have to! Are people not taught any sort of safety whatsoever anymore? Ridiculous! Even that, it seems much of today's society still won't see these barriers anyways!
  8. There you go. Nothing a whole lot special. Didn't bother to get the outside as it's not operational. Managed to catch it minutes ago.
  9. I dreamed last night about someone in SF having Ex-AC Transit 3101 (1998 NABI 416 Cummins M11) under private ownership and with the original exhaust. It drove by my place when I was outside and I was flipping out big time. However I didn't have camera or audio recorder available at the time.
  10. Sure they could ban headphones on the platform with a bylaw but on a public road near the tracks? They are better off placing barriers around the tracks to make sure people look both ways before crossing.
  11. Mississauga MiWay Transit New Flyer Xcelsior XD40 1407 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmL2tzlX4RM 900th Upload Special - York Region Transit New Flyer D40LF 321 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uIP-cdZh1Q Novas, Novas, Novas.....5 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUxekN4q02Y St. Catharines Transit New Flyer D40LF 0703 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okA-oO0qzm0 St. Catharines Transit New Flyer D40LF 0601 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-I72PIkIlo Fort Erie Transit Eldorado EZ-Rider II MAX 2802 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdhuQdBohuU
  12. The problem with the inveros is how the glass is angled in front of the sign . I've noticed Oc trying to fix some of the issues with the signs on the Inveros Heres a couple of examples 4307 sign not angled 4320 with the sign angled (if I'm seeing correctly)
  13. An out of control SUV struck a link car last night: http://komonews.com/news/local/suv-strikes-light-rail-train-in-sodo-neighborhood Quite a gnarly gash on the side of the train.
  14. Cockfosters on the Piccadilly line
  15. Hopes rapidway speeds up the route. The purple bus spent Keele&Highway 7 least 5 to 7 minutes to wait the signal to turn left.
  16. The ones I saw were buses that came out of the garage till afternoon so driver might not of signed up P/R 521 when he left the garage
  17. Spotted 7840 arriving back to SG after it's afternoon run today and it is refurbished in the red livery with new city logo and new style fleet number font.
  18. Bombardier Innovia Metro 300 since I've ridden the Rotem. Ride an M-1 on Line 1 leaving first or a Gloucester on Line 1 leaving second. (In the 80's I had the choice and I chose the Gloucester).
  19. So my friend Ramona just won Famoso Pizza's Free Pizza for a Year contest. She is some happy right now. And, if it weren't for me... she wouldn't even have known about the contest !!!
  20. SDOT has published a pretty comprehensive update on its RapidRide expansion program. One of the interesting tidbits is that some of the lines have been officialy named: Madison BRT (the replacement for parts of routes 11 & 12) will be called the RapidRide G Line. Delridge BRT (the replacement for route 120) will be called the RapidRide H Line. http://www.seattle.gov/Transportation/docs/RREP_Plan_DRAFT_022217u.pdf
  21. Me neither. PSA's and aggressive campaigns to start with, but really, people just have to take more responsibility for their own lives. Any Time Is Train Time !!!
  22. Thanks but not really interested in such a group. Too much going on FB as it is. I've already eliminated lots of 'groups' and 'pages' because it just got so overwhelming.
  23. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/calgary-c-train-fatalities-headphone-ban-1.3995225 Can't see how they would enforce this.
  24. http://www.railpictures.net/photo/607216/ http://www.railpictures.net/photo/607170/ http://www.railpictures.net/photo/607162/
  25. There's no 'compensation vehicle'. That table was drawn up taking into account the 2016 deliveries only, that is, up to, and including car #4430. Cars 4431 & up are counted against this year's deliveries.
  26. I've been doing some snooping around, and if there really are 31 vehicles in service now, adding the delivery schedule totals up will equal 205 streetcars. Is there something we don't know about such as a compensation vehicle? http://ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2017/February_21/Reports/2_Chief_Executive_Officer's_Report_February_2017.pdf Here's the figures I got from the latest CEO's report.
