    Rationale could be that brake dust won’t adhere as well to a gloss vs. Matte surface maybe?

    TTC Orion VII Retirements

    6 of those 1800s will be moved to the recently purchased Obico property in the west end for use as driver training units exclusively. Still to be maintained by malvern for the time being. Smart. Sault st. Marie has several NGs in their fleet. They’ll want only it for harvesting body parts. Same deal as when Timmins bought a couple of retired London CNG Orion 6s many years ago. They have no intention of running it. The latest scuttlebutt is that fleet management has reconsidered and has requested clever devices manufacture kits to equip the rest of the 7900s (excluding the roadblock buses possibly) There will be some lead time before they’d get around to making them, so they could be deployed on streetcar substitutions exclusively, with the same TETRA radios. as an aside, the vision buses communicate with TETRA technology as well, it’s just got more extra bells and whistles, like tablet screens ‘n shit.

    This is fun. Like one of those choose your own ending books from childhood. You never know what zany excuse is going to substitute hard evidence next! I can’t wait for the ending: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deus_ex_machina

    It is somewhat odd that an apology gets posted, but the original counterfeit invitation is conspicuously absent.

    I attended, and am on a first name basis with them, son.

    Actually, I’m quite enjoying this roll in the slop. Very cathartic.

    This board has gone downhill in many ways for a long, long time. Coherence, fact checking, grammar and general laziness when reading and posting.I’ve had a front row seat. Any old timers here will have noticed a subtle but steady abandonment of the board over the last decade by actual transit employees out of sheer frustration. I’ve reached my limit.

    Because the XE40s are ONLY available with rear climate control, which was mentioned not 3 hours, and 3 posts above? I give up. Gonna be taking my marbles and going home for awhile.

    We’re you ever able to source a paper VH manual?

    To that end, it appears they’ll be getting Alcoa wheels, presumably for weight savings.

    It was my understanding that the hvac components were displaced to the rear to make way for more batteries up top. I believe only the one on the far right is TTC. Depending on the route, mandarin or Cantonese messages may be quite useful.

    That falls into the timeline I was told by an engineering technologist.

    It’s perfectly normal to be terrified. Becoming a parent is a huge life altering experience. Anyone who says otherwise is either childless, a liar, or some kind of emotionally impaired sociopath.

    Those are set up for quick, frequent recharging only at the present time. Completely different infrastructure requirements.

    Missing in Action buses

    It’s at birchmount. Presumably waiting on a proper kit to be delivered.
  24. I’m not in any way connected to, nor interested in operator sign ups, masters or route transfers. For the maintenance side, it appears the plan is to simply post the new positions like any other opening, and bid in the conventional fashion.
