  1. Today's Sightings

  2. I have it on reasonably good authority from the mechanics that preceded me, that the legendary reliability of the new look didn’t particularly translate to the GM artic. In toronto anyway, they were happy to see them go.
  3. BYD "E-Bus"

    That was the meekest, most apologetic list of complaints I’ve ever seen... If the defect causes a road call mid trip, or prevents or delays the vehicle from entering service, it’s not exactly “little”, now is it? If there ‘s any video of the interview, I want to see if there’s a red scope dot at this guy’s left temple.
  4. 1991/1992/1995 Translink D40 Spottings

    Okay, guys. No need for a lynching here.
  5. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Evacuations would be interesting.. to quote my favourite, Captain Hero.....

    Let’s just say that “let me check with my mom” doesn’t bode well for credibility.
  7. Current TTC Wraps

    Gotcha. I’m not superstitious or religious, so that part sailed over my head. Probably not. Just seized the opportunity.
  8. You’re right. It was the cameras they skipped them over.
  9. Must have been short on stock of the long ones, and no one’s bothered to replace it. I got the internal part number wrong and accidentally ordered a short one for 9080 last week. Much to my surprise, we still had a few. Lotsa dust on the box. Besides the streetcars, the GMs were the only ones to use them, and we purged them (at my location) in 2009.
  10. GO Transit

    Didn’t you know? EVERYONE is entitled to Dave’s opinion. I mean, it’s not like anyone else has to show up to GO meetings, he’s got them covered.
  11. Current TTC Wraps

    It’s a business on an Eglinton route. All the units for the foreseeable future are new novas. What’s their basis for charging more? I’d speculate Dolphin bingo has a multi year contract stipulating one unit at Eglinton be wrapped for them. One dies, it’s repalced with another. They may not even be charged anything above and beyond the ongoing fee.

    Sounds like MORE than enough evidence to me, let’s gitsum!
  13. GO Transit

    That’s like, some Nostradamus shit right there...
  14. The Random Thoughts Thread

    More outrageous are Brazil’s methods to “eliminate” the problem....at least our local population doesn’t have to flee systematic culling. https://news.vice.com/article/meet-the-elite-cops-cleaning-up-rios-favelas https://news.vice.com/article/someone-dies-violently-every-10-minutes-in-brazil-and-police-are-part-of-the-problem ...and it goes on in every corner of the world, every hour of every day.
