    Hamilton Street Railway

    We all have our favourites to like and to dislike. The most comfortable seem to be the new shorter 1840-series, the worst when there is crowding seem to be the NOVAs as they lack horizontal near ceiling handle-bars at the front of the bus; my best rides over the past few months have been 0520 and 0706. But all that said my favourite bus is the one that is on-time.

    Future TTC Bus Orders

    Don't the NOVA 3400's do that at every stop when the diesel side goes quiet? A media event might be useful but with the current Toronto-Ontario fight over the TTC and the funding for all municipal transit in the province, an electric bus and all it"s wares might be overshadowed.

    Will the rebuild of Jane Station's bus bays mean artics on 35 and/or 935 and where will they come from (perhaps 36B)?

    GO Transit

    They ARE safe. Just the newer cars have CEM - it wouldn't be possible to replace from 2000 to 28xx in one order. I saw an eastbound LE train pass over Queen St. E today with a 2xx cabcar.

    I see that 0520 soldiers on. Today working 11-PARKDALE. Is it truly the last of it's class?
  15. Was by Russell this morning and noticed a few ALRVs in the three most westerly storage tracks with their headlights on. Is there a reason for this?
