    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    With all due respect, given the fact that you are posting in a thread in the Calgary section where not many of us are likely to be immediately aware of this "LRV loading facility" at Cromdale in Edmonton (I'm sure the former garage is the first thing that comes to mind for many of us non-Edmonton users when we think of "Cromdale", myself included), I think a clarification in your original post would have been helpful to a great extent, especially in contrast to getting defensive at an Ottawa user who had what I would describe as an honest misunderstanding.

    Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    Based on the images, the legroom doesn’t look any different than before, especially given there is still 6 rows. Either way, I’m sure it’s not as bad as the rear section of some of our older D40LF’s...

    Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    That seems to be similar to #2333 shape wise, which personally I don’t find overly terrible on the back (as long as I don’t slide all around on it). I would say the side facing seats on the S200’s are much worse with their short backs. As far as the refurbs go, I would have expected a design more similar to the transverse seating on the S200’s which I never had any issues with and in fact found quite comfortable. It’s unfortunate that wasn’t the case.

    Edmonton’s U2’s were rebuilt by Bombardier, not ETS.
