    I had a dream that someone had acquired 5300/01 from HCRR as well as H-6s 5896/97 and were running them on the CN York sub. I saw them pass on the bridge above Duffern.

    I heard YRT has some 100% electric buses on order (I've heard from Nova). Is that still the case?
  3. The major factor in the cars not running at museums is the electronics which are more complicated than say a PCC or Witt.
  4. Bump: 4014 has been restored and is operational.
  5. I know HCRR will get one CLRV and one ALRV.

    Any idea when 3701-3719 will arrive?

    If Buses Could Talk?

    ALRVs in spring 2019: We're waiting...
  8. 4001 was in the Easter parade today. AFAIK, this is the first time I've seen a SIG CLRV in the parade.

    TTC Electric Buses

    I wonder if that's because the TTC doesn't want to risk draining the batteries for something besides the bus's propulsion/Air conditioning/heating in winter.

    I had a dream all the preserved BBC trolleybuses had been brought to one place and I photographed them. I was hoping to go for a ride. I left and came back 30 minutes later and all of them had gone out for a run. I later saw an older D40LF painted in the older Kitchener Transit livery numbered 16.

    Does anyone know if 8790 and 8791 (later 2290 and 2291) would have crossed trolleybus routes operated from Lansdowne division in the early 90s? I'm curious if there was ever the chance they would have come across the Edmonton BBCs in service; especially 189 which is preserved at Sandtoft.

    Probably 2021 considering how long it took for 2252 to be completed and 2252 was in better condition.
  13. I've got a hypothetical question: Suppose TTC wanted to make it so some T-1s could be compatible with the signal system on the TYSSE and decided to assign cars 5350-5355 for simplicity sake and the trains ran with the cars in numerical order with 5350 and 5355 as lead cars. Would only cars 5350 and 5355 have to be modified, their mate cars too, or all six cars? I just thought of this and I was curious.

    Will they be keeping 8058 as a two speed or changing it to three speed transmission. And are they adding power steering or trying to keep the bus as close to original as possible.
