  1. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    7247 is back in service out of VTC on the 84 this morning.
  2. BC Transit - Chilliwack

    I don't know if this is a first but I lucked out this afternoon and got a D40LF (9844) on the 66 FVX from Chilliwack to McCallum Park and Ride where it was swapped for a Nova for the rest of the trip to Carvolth. Needless to say, it was a nice treat to hear the Detroit Diesel Series 50 screaming on the highway.

    It would appear that 8026 is also at BTC as of this morning. It also looks like 15013 and 15014 are at VTC.
  4. 2016 Skytrain Expansion

    I managed to get a photo of a 6 car Mark 1 train pulling into Coquitlam Central Station this afternoon.
  5. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    My brother spotted this BC Transit Nova yesterday afternoon at abound 3pm in White Rock at 16th Ave and 152nd St. Anyone have any idea why this bus would be there?
  6. Mark III tracking

    I spotted car 417 sticking out on one end of the maintenance building last Thursday while riding car 408 so that would lead me to believe that train 417-418-419-420 is assembled or in the process of being assembled and I saw one other assembled train being moved but couldn't see the numbers.

    Of course.

    Here is the hollow HO scale version of the 3D printed XN40 made by themikepeng.
  9. 2015 60' Articulated Bus Order (Diesel or Diesel/Electric Hyrbid)

    Does anybody know if these will have Allison or BAE hybrid systems?
  10. 2014(-2017) Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    Alright so there's a guy on Shapeways who has been working on making a 3D printable XN40 model for me and he's starting on the interior so does anybody have some interior shots from various angles of the XN40's that they could share? Any decent quality shots would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    I believe the whine has to do with the rail grinding work that's been happening on the M-line recently.

    According to the transit alerts page, both the Coq Stn and Lougheed Stn bus loops are returning to normal operations on Monday April 13th. The Lougheed bus loop map shows bay 8 as "unloading only" so this could be the bay that the 555 will use when its terminus gets moved.

    I saw the same bus parked at the South Surrey Park & Ride at about 1:30pm today and the sign said "training vehicle".
  14. Hamilton Transit Centre

    I went by HTC the other day on the 340 and while most of the site is still covered in large piles of rocks/soil, a portion of the future storage yard is paved with light poles installed.
  15. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    I was reading a City of Surrey planning report for a commercial development on the northeast corner of 156th St/104th Ave a few months back and it said that the developer is building a small transit exchange along with layover space and washroom facilities for drivers as part of the development. There was mention of a multi-use path connecting it with the 555 bus stops on the HOV ramps and it also said this exchange would be the eastern terminus of the LRT line to Guildford if it gets built.
