    General Route Discussion and History

    The only official detour was due to roadwork in Bowness. The Crowchild ramp closure should not have had a direct impact on Kensington Road. (The closest official detour was via Memorial.) Can’t think of anything else … unless there were unannounced road blockages due to Neighbour Day events?

    Also … why isn't Route 508 actively advertised? I mean, yes, it'll show up in apps for riders who are doing any kind of live route planning that morning. But if you're an advance planner like me, not being told ahead of time is kind of annoying.

    But that's was the whole point of putting artics on 985.

    All the cars up through 2030 have an asbestos board in the walls by the heater. They cut the outsides off to have the board removed.

    Hampton Roads Transit (HRT)

    After doing more research, the parent company of Hometown Trolley is actually "Hometown Manufacturing" that appears to have two divisions, 1) Hometown Trolley, and 2) Hometown Coach both headquartered in Crandon, Wisconsin and the company is registered as "Double K, Inc." --go HERE for Hometown Coach information Additionally, Hometown Trolley and Hometown Coach use mostly chassis made by FCCC. FCCC (Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation) is a subsidiary of Freightliner Trucks and are both under the corporate umbrella of Daimler. The use of the FCCC chassis interests me personally because I've owned several Class A motorhomes built on FCCC chassis. They are the prominent maker of the majority of Class A diesel-pusher motorhome chassis. It appears to me that "The Streetcar" model used by HRT is built on a FCCC XB-S straight-rail diesel pusher chassis. Here's an interesting article from an old edition of National Bus Trader magazine (busmag.com) that mentions the relationship: Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation -- Filling a Need for Higher Quality Mid-Size Buses .

  16. 6/15/19 22-215 doing the 141 WB at Jean Talon / Pie-IX at 17h58 (got on it) 22-317 arriving on the 141 WB at St. Michel Metro around 18h10 Stinson's 22-215 makes a comeback to Anjou. Farebox is still broken on it. It was doing the 141 then the 189 according to Gerbil's site. I found it odd that St. Laurent only sent out 1 old bus out this weekend, usually there are 2 or 3 at least. iBus (via Felix's app): Legendre's 22-380 on the 211 Anjou's 22-406 returns for another stint on the 109,, 23-201 on the 64

    Have you ever rode a bus that broke down?

    Last Monday I had gone looking for TTC 3411 and checked Transsee to see it was on route 995. I went to York Mills and prepared to board the bus there. 3411 pulled in and I got on. It then broke down and went out of service.

    The train is not the focus of the picture, it seems. If a lower third (in TV terminology) was to be superimposed upon it, it would be almost invisible, and the harbour or maybe the port behind the freight cars would become the focus. If the camera was angled lower about 10 to 20 degrees, the train would become centered in the frame and become the focus as intended.

    I am surprised the Nova doesn't have a dual trip meter. I believe New Flyer puts those on its Xcelsiors.

    Thought they contained asbestos? Not enough to worry about containing?
