  1. I don't have a Cover Photo function. Was it disabled again?
  2. A hint at more modern alternatives to the 767 being considered. http://business.financialpost.com/news/transportation/westjet-wants-more-fuel-efficient-aircraft-for-overseas-expansion-cfo-says I have also heard from a reliable source that the A330 (both NEO and CEO) and B787 are the types being considered. As of now, the A350 and B777 are not.
  3. Unidentified 2014 XD60 on hook NB Macleod at Heritage.
  4. Only up escalators are better than no escalators. Heritage, Southland, and Anderson, all very busy stations, don't have and never had down escalators either. Neither does Whitehorn as of its renovations.
  5. I've never seen it before. Seems like it's as of this new signup! This is something I am very pleased with.
  6. #6006 on the 14!!!!!!
  7. I think it's time to start doing this again... Units reported delivered: #'s 2401-2415 (15/63) Units reported in service: #'s 2401-2410, 2412, 2413 (12/15/63) Units to watch out for: #'s 2411, 2414, 2415 Information is gathered from reports in this thread. This post will be updated accordingly as it becomes necessary.
  8. #7585 on the 62 on NB Centre Street.
  9. Rode #1634 on the 104 today. Overall, quite satisfied. Rides and sounds very nice. Love the stop request sound. I found the rear door to be a little awkward to use; the sticker on the door states it is operator controlled, though it seems to use a proximity sensor as well. The operator also had some difficulty extending and retracting the wheelchair ramp.

  10. Went transit fanning with another member on this board all day today for my first time in a while. Had a great time and quite a satisfying yield! More on my Flickr.

  12. Sorry but I can't see what there is for them to "learn". All aircraft are subject to "problems", used and new...

  14. Unfortunately I didn't ride #1630 today as a result of it not being on the 430, though I did get one photo. Initially thought it was a Nova when I saw the side of it in the distance. IMG_3627 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  15. A 3-car S200 consist is out today. First time I have personally seen one out on a weekend.
