    I thought the loop cannot be expanded due to the fact that the station surrounds the loop.
  2. When they scrap the buses, what happens to the leased tires? Do they get returned after the bus is scrapped?

    They have a diesel locomotive that can tow the train?

    I was told that Via's new rolling stock has 1 Locomotive with the other end being a cab car. I wonder if they will allow baggage to be stored on the cab car much like the "Cabbage" F40's.
  5. Do the C axles rub the curb a lot? I would think it would be less than the front ones?

    How about adding more mid train helpers? And using dynamic brake cars to allow the train to hold air? Yes it costs more but something needs to be done to prevent these incidents from happening again.

    I guess that extra capacity they are building will come in handy.

    So is the main line through the Rockies still closed as a result? Do they have agreements to allow them to use the CN line until it's cleaned up?

    Will they be doing the rest of the HEP II Business class cars?

    Is 4004 one of the HEP II cars rebuilt by Bombardier?

    I understand that Line 3 is shut down because of the cold. Do we know what the exact problem is? Where they shovelling the line by hand yesterday? Is that why it took them so long to get it back and running?
  13. How many years of service would those buses have left? If it extends their service life I think it's worth it.

    Looks like there is another opportunity for Siemens. https://www.railwaygazette.com/news/traction-rolling-stock/single-view/view/amtrak-seeks-amfleet-i-replacements.html
