  1. That was looked into but there where problems with filling that many buses with CNG everyday. Plus the cost to build a filling station.

    Would updated Acela type cars be an option? But they are not pushpull compatible unless they design one with a cab. Or multilevel cars?

    I'm surprised they are fixing the HEP II cars considering how many times they said that they are past their life expectancy, and that it's not worth fixing.

    Do we have TR units that can spray glycol? Or will they run T1's on line 1?

    It could be that its easier to use containers, since they can be double stacked as well. Has the intermodal business increased at the expense of moving actual trailers?

    Why did they discontinue the expressway service? Not enough demand?

    So will they be doing 6 at a time? 2 at each facility? Otherwise with summer coming I don't think they will have that many spares. Are there some cars in storage that could be done first? Replacing the seats of the HEP II cars are long overdue. Will they overhaul the truck Assembly's? Some of them ride quite rough at high speed.

    Personally I think they are a great example of a business being run into the ground.

    Another contract is awarded to CAD to refurbish HEP cars used in the Canadian. https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/via-rail-awards-46-million-contract-to-cad-railway-industries-for-renovation-of-25-train-cars-679294533.html Why break it up between Bombardier and CAD?

    That makes sense.

    2.2 billion dollar facility to rebuild 120 buses? Would it be cheaper to just buy new ones?

    Will these busses free up the blue busses to get fixed up? Some of them need body work with rust forming.
  13. Is it really that difficult to properly manage headways? It's kinda part of what a transit comission should be able to do isn't it? How incompetent are the people who are responsible for managing bus headways.
  14. VIA Rail Canada

    Is that the equivalent to one accessible car per train?
  15. VIA Rail Canada

    So which cars are they rebuilding? HEP II? Or are there some HEP I cars in the corridor that are in storage?
