  1. PA speaker quality in any transit vehicle or station often tends to be so-so at best. Stations often tend to be worse, because of the echo.
  2. And air conditioned, 10 years before the TTC's H5 et seq.
  3. Fleet # 205, part of the 25-unit 1965 order or TDH5303s.
  4. Vancouver's SkyTrain system, being fully automated, is loaded with sensors including track intrusion.
  5. Better battery charge, reduced charging time, reduced brake wear.
  6. The traction motor operating as a generator, using the current generated to recharge the battery.
  7. Do buses have fleet numbers on the roof for that? Ottawa's do, for one.
  8. Around the old "Confusion Corner" where 5 streets converge. When I lived there I sometimes dubbed it "McMildon-Corosbina" after those 5 streets - and this reroute covered all 5 of them!
  9. In the Montreal Metro system, all exposed metal objects such as trash cans are grounded. I haven't noticed if that's also the case in Toronto, but next time I'm there I'll look.
  10. Not surprised, with K-Days being among numerous cancelled events across Canada
  11. Correct. It was started after a 2006 incident in which a boxcar blown off the bridge dangled there for about 3 weeks. Double-stacks are also barred from the bridge in 85 km/h+ winds.
