  4. Did the TTC or OC Transpo sell buses to Cuba?

  5. Did the TTC or OC Transpo sell buses to Cuba?

    There's some more info on Can-Ar/Tokmakjian's export operations in this (old) article: http://www.luxner.com/cgi-bin/view_article.cgi?articleID=1051
  6. TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    Most of Rapido's locomotive releases come with a decal sheet with lots of fleet numbers for renumbering and other labels/logos/etc that can be added as appropriate, so they will probably provide a decal sheet with multiple rollsign exposures that can be applied over the existing rollsign area, and additional fleet numbers to apply if you want to do another unit.

    Something's up with 8058 - they've torn that thing down rather thoroughly, too thoroughly. If they were going to junk it they'd probably just remove the seats and interior panels/components to reuse in another unit, and junk the rest. The :new" rear window body panel from another unit sitting behind 8058 is also suspect, like they are planning to replace 8058's the rusted-out one. Methinks maybe the fact that the TTC has a Rapido fishbowl model for sale (pre-order) on their site numbered 8058, perhaps someone changed their minds on keeping the real thing... But who knows.

    1608 currently on the 85, not sure if it's first day was today or it snuck out on something on the weekend.

    According to photos, 1431 was unwrapped sometime between October 25th and the 28th.
  10. Rapido Trains TTC GM fishbowl replica

    Actually, Rapido announced its purchase months ago when they put out the HO-scale New Look promo video, and they've been posting photos of it undergoing overhaul and repainting for the last month or two.

    Hmm, crunching the numbers again, this list is missing 22-009 (that became 2600), so unless there's a typo it looks like 64 units.

    Thanks 6254, I figured there would be someone on here with a list of units acquired.
  13. TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    Question - does anyone have a full roster of all the STM/STCUM Montreal fishbowls the TTC acquired in the late 90's to rebuild (including the unrebuilt ones used for parts and scrapped). I've checked a few of the well-known places and haven't found any comprehensive listings. Some sources mention while 100 were planned for rebuild (20 only ever done), only 62 were ever acquired. I've managed to account for about 41 individual units.
  14. Hamilton Street Railway

    Hamilton flashback: delivery of some brand new HSR Flyer E800's from the 7800-series via CN flatcar: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=24953
  15. Brampton Transit/Züm

    Couple of rattling panels or loose screws, nothing a few minutes with a screwdriver couldn't fix. Where's the eastbound footage?
