    CTrain - U2 cars

    Thanks for the photos! Mind blowing how little has really changed aside the seats. The original interior had a certain elegance to it (especially in comparison with today's), which admittedly can't really be maintained on transit vehicles.

    CTrain Station Renovations

    It certainly hasn't felt very long! Though it's been long enough that I unfortunately only remember using the old version of that station once in 2012. And not to mention the long way it has came since then! Chinook Station by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr That being said, I remain excited to see what changes Anderson awaits, especially given the lack of renderings published (at least as far as I'm aware).

    CTrain - U2 cars

    Out of curiosity, do any photos exist of the original interiors of the U2’s from the early 1980’s?

    CTrain Station Renovations

    Here's some photos from earlier today. Reminds me of Chinook in 2013...

    Onestop Screens

    What looks like the mounting brackets for the new screens have just been installed at Somerset. Real time signs gone. Anderson and Southland have the screens now as well.

    Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    Trains are currently short turning at Fish Creek due to a switch problem at Somerset. A train appears to be stuck on the crossover. Supervisors on scene to manually move the switches. Normal service restoring as of 14:10.

    What do you enjoy most about the hobby?

    My answer to this question would depend on the time frame we're talking about. 5 years ago, I enjoyed it for the interesting equipment (think high floor and two-stroke buses) still around back then.. and with the lack of tracking software (i.e. Transit55) at the time, the excitement and satisfaction of catching images/video of something rare after waiting on a downtown street for a good several hours. It was that, that truly made it addicting. Now today, with most of the said "interesting equipment" gone, I enjoy it for the childhood memories! And of course riding brand new equipment rolling in every now and then which is still always great fun.

    General Route Discussion and History

    I am somewhat surprised there are no open houses being held in the SW, particularly the Mount Royal University area (unless those will come later). I have heard in the past from a reliable source that MRU will also see lots of major route changes when the BRT's come online...

    CTrain - U2 cars

    Check out the photo posted by 'LRT' on Page 17: I personally have always found this peculiar myself also. Perhaps this photo was mistaken for the inaugural run and was actually taken sometime at a later date? At least one photo even exists showing a different stripe pattern on the front of the cars (#2001 to be exact) which I have posted in the U2 Retirements thread.

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

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    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...
