  1. Throwback Thursday! This is the last photo I ever took of an MCI Classic in service in this city. #5067 on the Route 14 near my house on October 8, 2014, one week before the last reported day of service for these buses. IMG_7958 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  2. Several (4-5, maybe more) keys every day, combination of 3 and 4 car. They are generally easier to find in the rush hours. About 2 keys are usually out on weekends.
  3. I beg to differ. They're not nearly as comfortable as the standard padded seats on the series.
  4. 4 car U2 on the Red Line this morning. #2071-2044-2043-2004.
  5. Air Canada's latest A321 repaint (C-GIUE) at Calgary today. IMG_4186 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr IMG_4188 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  6. To the best of my recollection... Units reported delivered: #'s 2401-2421 (21/69) Units reported in service: #'s 2401-2413, 2415-2417 (16/21/69) Units to watch out for: #'s 2414, 2418-2421 Information is gathered from reports in this thread. This post will be updated accordingly as it becomes necessary.
  7. They actually do receive a complete engine rebuild. If it wouldn't significantly extend the lives of the vehicles then there would be no point in refurbishing them.
  8. It can vary greatly based on a wide variety of factors...
  9. Throwback Thursday! (+1 for last week) #7513 at Brentwood on the Route 37 (also no longer present) near the end of a PM rush hour in January of 2014. IMG_5048 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr #7001 showing up at 5th and 9th to my surprise and delight in October of 2013. IMG_4461 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  10. Power outage at Dalhousie tonight. Trains running Somerset-Brentwood. Shuttle buses in place between Brentwood-Crowfoot at this time. I have no information on Tuscany.
  11. Both 40 foot?
  12. How so?
  13. I could see them providing service between major domestic hubs (Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto) for a start. The original WestJet did something like that too when they inaugurated in the 90's. Though this time it wouldn't surprise me if they did the same thing NewLeaf did and used lower cost airports such as Abbotsford and Hamilton.
  14. That would usually be either maintenance or a faulty CAD system preventing it from showing up on Transit55.
  15. Noticed the rear doors are closing much faster on a lot more of them now too...
