    Couldn’t possibly be...you just called me a wannabe, remember? You just dissed the only certified mechanic on this entire board. Go and rescue Gotham from itself...we’re doing fine here without your advice.

    My employer of 15 years thinks otherwise. If your deductive reasoning is a sharp as I think it is, it should’nt take you too long to nail down who they may be.

    @Chris.A -some bathroom reading for you to get you up to speed. Toronto has done their homework, arguably more than any other organization to date: https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2017/November_13/Reports/2018-2040 Bus Green Technology Plan Presentation(November 20.pdf https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2018/June_12/Reports/27_Green_Bus_Technology_Plan_Update.pdf let us know when you’ve finished reading them, as I won’t engage in further discussion with you on the subject until you have. https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-electric-buses-20180520-story.html There were some accusations of conflict of interest thrown around in this article regarding Los Angeles specifically.

    Wilson crew will be reporting to birchmount Tuesday morning. Any 8300 stragglers will be installed there and driven back.

    Goddammit. Hipsters were spotted THERE now?! The one place I could run to for sanity, DEFILED by axe throwing poseurs!! The only James Bay those vacuous lemmings should be going to is the musical type. And they can keep him, and his stupid hat, too. (End rant)

    Ok, ok. We should really hand the thread back over to them. PM me if you want to keep going.

    This time next year -after the three trial batches have some mileage, hopefully I’ll have enough practical evidence (maybe even some of it first hand) on them to form some sort of scientific opinion. Besides the media articles about BYD foreshadowing trouble, even I don’t have the hubris to make a blanket statement one way or the other. “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt” , right?

    Won’t rag on someone who does. Just never appealed to me. Joke in the photo is that those machines generated honest to god X rays, so you could see how your toe bones fit in your new shoes. Guaranteed to give you leukemia in 10 minutes or your money back. Right up there with radium faced glowing watches and “revitalizing” ceramic drinking water jugs doped with uranium. Anyways, some of the higher strung members are getting testy that we’re not staying on topic, so I guess we’ll have to stop acting like real people and curb the humor now. 🥺

    Sarcasm dude. Was trying to work the gag that I’m ancient compared to the kids. Although it is true that I’ve never owned any video game system, ever.

    What’s this “X” box sorcery you speak of? Something to view shoe fitment whist in store? Actually I found quite the opposite. Bland as cooked oatmeal compared to the 2 stroke ancestors.

    I agree, especially with the hybrids. Sustained high speed travel is really hard on the batteries....or at least it used to be. As far as I know, the engine is still only 250 horsepower. That will mean a net deficit if not stopped relatively often to recharge them. Silver lining is it’s a helluva shakedown test en route.

    For what it’s worth, they were the last series 50’s in the fleet. I guess this leaves Niagara Falls as the the last holdout in Ontario?

    We’re 100% Cummins now. Might as well get a tramp stamp of their logo to remind us who owns our asses now....😒💄👄👠
