    So the speed limit is about 10mph?
  2. Are we going to test out the bugs before getting the whole batch?

    They have them in active storage?

    TEMSA's are popular in Mexico and Europe. I wonder how good they are in cold weather.

    They just need to empty the septic tanks, take on water and Fuel. And then linens and food can be loaded on the platform. Don't know how they would deal with any mechanical issues. Swap cars from TMC and the cut out the bad cars and replace them with one from TMC? Do they have the ability to wash the train in the yard?

    In order for them not to make a reverse move, they would need to build another track facing east wouldn't they?

    Most likely because some HEP II cars are in the shop to be rebuilt.

    Do they still need to make a reverse move at Kipling? What is the current track speed on the Canpa subdivision?

    Greyhound in the news

    I think some of these incidents are not the fault of Greyhound. However with some of these incidents I feel like low morale in the workforce and corporate has no idea how to properly run an organization. One hand doesn't talk to the other and there is no common sense.

    Would it be possible or necessary to build passing siding at stations? I wonder how flexible CN would be to have VIA run trains on its tracks.

    Intercity bus body? If there is one?

    Why doesn't the regulatory body do something? They seem to get away with whatever.

    I think if each town along the line is willing to pitch in and then have the province match it, that would be a good start. What are the track conditions like? And would stopping at stations block the main line?

    But a court order is law. There is no arguing that. They have to fix the line as ordered. If they don't have the money then prove it. I'm sure the line has potential, it's just about realizing it and making an effort for it to make money.

    How do they not have the funds? Should they default on the repair the line should be handed over to the government. Which can either maintain the line themselves or choose to sell it to a buyer who is capable of performing the repairs, to bring the line back into operating condition.
