    Calgary Transit - Photos of vehicles no longer in the fleet

    Throwback Thursday! #1046 on display at Oliver Bowen for Doors Open YYC 2014 - September 27th, 2014. Would sure be nice if the transit facility tours came back for Doors Open... IMG_3117 (2) by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr

    From what I’ve heard, the livery “announcement” for February 28 was a hoax.

    That, or even just "CTrain - S200 cars" would be perfect!

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    We certainly don't need to start a new thread. But what could be done is this existing thread be renamed to not include "near future", as I would imagine that this could potentially be misleading to new users/users unfamiliar with our city. Just my two cents...

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    Just a minor observation and random thought... Is there any particular reason for the words "near future" still being in this topic's title after well over two years of these cars being in Calgary?

    Looks like it would have been quite easy to bang your head while standing up inside those...

    Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

    Weekday off peak that is. There are still some 40 foot rush hour keys on the 3. Unless that changed...

    Throwback Thursday! For some reason I took this photo and then forgot about it, never editing or posting it anywhere until now over 4 years later. #7550 in a quiet downtown core on New Years Eve 2013. Certainly the one thing that makes that week between Christmas and New Years awesome (for transit fans at least)... rush hour without the 'rush'! IMG_4856 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr

    Throwback Thursday! #1605 on the Route 169 in August of 2014, as I was having some fun with my then-new zoom lens at the then-new Tuscany station. IMG_2626 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr

    General Route Discussion and History

    Here's a 1945 map of Calgary's streetcar lines. Posted by Adele Simpson in "You Know You Grew Up In Calgary When..." Facebook group. Interesting how these routes more or less still exist today as bus routes... some even retaining their numbers!

    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    Don't the resistor fans also facilitate interior heat? Or are those entirely separate fans that don't freeze up?

    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    Will slow orders be a thing of the past once the U2's are all retired? If so, what is it about the U2's that warrants slow orders?

    Throwback Thursday! An interior we all remember and love. Taken during my last ever ride on board a Calgary Transit MCI Classic on October 2nd, 2014. IMG_7922 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr And a video I took during that ride:

    Flashback Friday! (Yes, changing things up a bit!) These are the last two photos I ever took of 1993 D40LF's in service in Calgary. #7525 and #7529 at 5th and 9th on December 8, 2014. IMG_8259 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr IMG_8258 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr

    All they did was rehabilitate and expand the curbs at the Route 3/37 stop and 20/80/502 stop, at least from my observations. I would imagine when the BRT infrastructure starts coming together there will be more work done.
