    TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    I'm not sure if it was asked previously, but what series of 5307 were the fastest series the TTC ran?

    I wonder if it will be permanently on 2252 or just for CUTA?

    Plus I believe 2252 will also be charterable.
  4. Yeah I meant 8573. I knew it was in the 8500 series, but I knew it was NOT 8500 even
  5. If 9003 is too damaged to repair, I wonder if Nova can build just a front section of an artic and TTC and separate the back section and use it with the new front section? Or TTC can graft the front of the 8500 that was t-boned onto 9003 like what they did with a fishbowl and a D40LF? Hope the injured make full recoveries.

    If Buses Could Talk?

    TTC 2444: My butt hurts! TTC 2345: WHAT?!?

    How much damage did 4486 suffer in its incident at St. Clair West?

    I know that the MR-63s were repainted to match the MR-73s when they were new. I wonder if STM would paint at least one MR-73 element to match the Azurs?

    Transit Related Dreams

    I had a dream I got to ride a Gloucester work train on the subway. However, for some reason, one of the cars was restored to the passenger G-1 livery. A TTC supervisor got me on the train for hassling me in the past and this was her way to apologize. I was riding on the Yonge line towards Finch. At Bloor several other transit fans boarded the train. I only remember DJ Orion being one of them.

    With 2252 NOT being displayed at Leslie tomorrow, will they bring the PCCs and/or 2766 to Leslie Barns tomorrow?
  11. This is hardly the worst thing United has done and is extremely unusual: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/lifestyle/travel/united-pilot-to-passengers-were-turning-around-because-our-planes-too-big/ar-BBOLI2j?ocid=spartandhp
  12. Someone tried to assault me: I had gotten off a Flexity at St. Clair and Bathurst and crossed to the northwest corner. A guy and his large, deep voiced girlfriend got off. As I crossed the street, the guy asked if I was looking at his girlfriend. I said, "she's in public." I sensed he might try to attack me so I took off my backpack and put it in front of me to act as a buffer. My hunch was correct and he charged at me. I threw some Pepsi at him while telling him to leave me alone! His girlfriend told him to back off and she and a bystander asked if I was okay. The girlfriend apologized for him saying he was an idiot. I was but I was still shocked what happened. I did shout to him if he tried it again I would call the police. I think this guy may have been drunk. I did board a bus on the 126, but he nor his girlfriend got on.

    Orion at Mount Dennis: What's he doing here? (indicates 2252) 2252: I'm back.

    Cancelled TTC bus orders

    In the late 90s/early 2000s, the TTC looked into D60LFs but they failed the shaker test which made the TTC reconsider.

    2766 was restored to how it looked after being "moderized" in 1937. Such is the case with witts 2424 and 2894 at HCRR and 2890 at Seashore.
