  1. 2418 is on the siding. Likely offloaded tomorrow.
  2. And to add to LRTs post, without the functioning VIS transmitting codes that are read by induction loops in between the rails, the train won't get a routing through interlocking so won't be able to move (as he mentioned) - so the only ways for a train to get through the interlocking are for switching to be done manually with signal bypasses (last resort), operators selecting routing using wayside push-buttons (not available at City Hall or O'Neil), or the 'easiest', to have routings established by the Control Centre in 'CC' Mode (Central Control). This is when the Controllers can remotely take control of an interlocking and put routes through by computer. While that's the easiest of the options , Controllers don't really have time to be routing a train through each interlocking for an entire day, so the train is generally changed off as soon as it's practical.
  3. Guessing this was a well-positioned training train helping out.
  4. It's certainly been done numerous times before. Don't see why they wouldn't do it again, as long as it's off peak.
  5. I'm sure I'm maybe missing some, but I know they're in place coming out of McKenzie Towne Terminal, at the new queue jump on Barlow & 114th Avenue, and on 52nd Street at Marlborough Drive. There's no horizontal bar, but the bus priority signal will show a vertical white bar when the bus is clear to proceed, after which point the standard signals are used.
  6. Yes they do.
  7. No midday keys. These trains are still generally only dispatched on AM or PM extras on weekdays.
  8. Never mind. Gather now its waiting at the yard for delivery next week.
  9. It was offloaded Tuesday. Two deliveries within a few days - maybe things are ramping up?
  10. Looks like 2415 arrives on the siding today.
  11. It probably wasn't even called Olympic Plaza Station when that photo was taken! Nice!
  12. Different colour wrap, it could even be 2207 coming back....
  13. Depends on your definition of 'last night'. Late in the evening was a car on the tracks, late afternoon/early evening was a mechanical problem.
  14. Hey! It almost made it out of the yard today!
  15. Time will tell I guess, once they have a chance to get it on the hoist and really check it out. Heard it's being towed back tonight, which is a positive indication it's in decent enough shape. If it was an obvious write-off, it likely would've gone off in two pieces like 2311.
