    CTrain Station Renovations

    The stairs at Anderson seem to now be taped off for whatever reason. Construction related signage is confusing.
  2. The rear sign seems to be easier to photograph.

    New Flyer D40LF Retirement/Storage Watch

    I thought all ISC buses were retrofitted to ISL several years ago...

    CTrain Station Renovations

    Paid Anderson a visit. Nothing too special. Station interior looks cool though (albeit no incline elevator ☹️).

    Future of Flickr

    Just a random observation/comment... I'm finding it quite intriguing that even though my money is going towards more useful expenditures than Flickr Pro, all 9400+ of my Flickr photos are still up, after all these months of them announcing they'll be deleting all photos over the 1000 limit on free accounts 😂.

    CAD buses

    I was wondering what acronym was going to be used for Stoney!
  13. Following much of the world grounding or restricting airspace to one of the most successful modern narrowbody airliners after the recent crash of Ethiopian Airlines flight 302, Canada has followed suit. The combined 41 737 MAX aircraft of Air Canada, WestJet, and Sunwing will be grounded until further notice. https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/canada-issues-safety-notice-for-boeing-737-max-8s-1.4333935?fbclid=IwAR3Xe08Tf9hIgTNoK5Klc90cbscaqw1aCmQLfKhfrvyV_5Em04JslcalD88
  14. A recording of #8357 from this afternoon.
  15. Took a ride on #8357 along the full length of the 77. Nice bus. Slow acceleration. Feels, sounds, and smells virtually identical to #8203/4. The bus was sweltering hot inside because of issues with the HVAC (from what the operator told me), and today’s warm weather combined with the lack of opening windows doesn’t help that case. The operator had the roof hatches open, and I could be mistaken on this but the label on the hatches reads “motorized roof vent” suggesting that no muscle power is required to operate it. If someone could confirm this that would be awesome. More content will be posted when I get home.

    Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

    There’s an XD40 on the tarmac at AG.
  17. Adding Air Canada’s 787-9 this morning.
  18. With the new garage beginning operations on Monday, how likely is it that these buses will enter service?

    Is there any kind of open house/Doors Open-type event planned for the new garage in the near future?
