  1. 3745 is back in service for the first time in who knows how long
  2. I've come down with a cold and one of the three remaining TTC electric buses that I have yet to ride (as well as the only one I have yet to photograph) is in service for the first time in months.
  3. Saw VIVA 1390 deadheading back to the garage. This was the bus where someone was stabbed on Monday.
  4. Someone was stabbed on a VIVA bus at Yonge and Royal Orchard which is right near me. I saw the bus surrounded by emergency vehicles. Bus involved is #1390.
  5. After restoring Big Boy 4014 to operation, Union Pacific decided against restoring Challenger 3985 to operation; instead retired the locomotive. 3985 last ran in 2010. Earlier today, Union Pacific announced it would donate 3985 to Railroading Heritage of Midwest America along with 2-10-2 #5511 which is in storage at Union Pacific's Cheyanne roundhouse as well as a few passenger cars, the shell of a E9B, a caboose, and Centennial #6936. The Railroading Heritage of Midwest America plans to restore 3985 then 5511 to operation. There is one unknown: When Union Pacific restored 4014 to operation, it is currently running with 3985's tender and the tender 4014 came from California with hasn't been touched yet. I'm not sure which tender will accompany the 3985 to its new home in Illinois.
  6. Today someone returned a Christmas tree to the Home Depot I work at. IN APRIL. I put it in the clearance section for $25. One of my co-workers considered buying it but ended up not buying it. If he had, I would have been the only person in the world to have sold a Christmas tree today.
  7. I've seen that some of the 8100 series double decker buses are being stored at HCRR. Any idea know how many buses there and what numbers they are?
  8. It appears between now and the end of next year YRT is expecting another four electric buses.
  9. I'm not sure if 3755 was considered MIA but according to Transsee, it was in service on 91.
  10. It makes me wonder what they'd say if they would have been asked if they thought the cars would be in service for 40 years?
  11. It appears TRAMS is scrapping 132.
  12. At today's Easter Parade, 4514 and 4554 were the only TTC vehicles that were in the parade. The overhead east of Kingston Road can only accept pantographs (Why they didn't use the style like they did when 509 and 510 were first converted I don't know) If the TTC couldn't have put any historic cars, they could have at least have brought fishbowl 2252 as a consolation vehicle.
  13. Does anyone know if 1130 ran out of Spring Gardens or Anderson between 2002 and 2003? That was when I was living in Calgary and I mostly focused on Spring Gardens' fishbowls though I would occasionally go into Anderson territory.
  14. I wonder what this will mean for the Proterras and BYD buses in the TTC fleet with New Flyer most likely being the winner.
  15. Yeah, though 2101 and 2103 were on 55 so they could have used one of those and ran 1914 on 55.
  16. YRT: 1914 on 96. I have a photo if no one believes me.
  17. There appears to be at least one Proterra in the 3735-3749 series behind the wall at Mount Dennis; most likely 3739, 3745, or 3749.
  18. My Proto 2000 model GP38 broke and now I'm looking for a replacement. Can't seem to find one online.
  19. Transsee now says that 3739 is back at Mount Dennis. However 3745 and 3749 are near the intersections of highways 401,403, and 410.
