  1. #6752 at Big Rig Collision in Calgary, AB today.
  2. Saw about 8 people board the northbound Route 10 at Macleod/58 Ave at around 1630 this afternoon.
  3. Look what we have here! Ex-CT #5085 at 2005 Alyth Place SE.
  4. I'm sure there will still be a bus connection to the hospital from Somerset. Though until they do the route review down here there's not much basis to speculate on.
  5. No point in doing that. The Cranston/Auburn Bay services will more than likely be localized to the Green Line anyway.
  6. What would suck even more is sacrificing a perfectly good service hour that could easily move 10-15 essential commuters elsewhere in the city who have no alternate transit options, in favor of running an express route to move a whole 0-1 people in the SE who just so happen to need to go to downtown at 6 in the morning and can't possibly bear the thought of taking their local feeder bus to catch the LRT or 302 instead. Wouldn't seem like the best possible use of resources during these times, wouldn't you say?
  7. Who is using those right now?
  8. That list excludes a lot of loop routes. I'm sure it'll work out to be several more than 25.
  9. As of late, for whatever reason, all Route 3 buses have been displaying the “ROUTE 3” echo code.
  10. I wouldn't be surprised.
  11. The 81 in it's old form used to go to big bus each summer signup.
  12. Based on things I've been hearing from various inside sources, I'd strongly advise anyone who might be planning to photograph a 7600 one last time to make sure they do so by the end of this week....
  13. Nothing against the awesome app that T55 is, or anyone here, but imagine the feeling of finding and riding rare old gems without the help of a tracking app .
  14. Listening to Corona, while drinking Corona, and hiding from Corona.
  15. Perhaps it's less of an issue on the shuttle buses given how the operators sit much more out of the way of boarding passengers and generally face further away from the door?
  16. In case any doubt exists, tomorrow's 7600 charter in Calgary is still 100% a go, and I myself am still PUMPED! With less than 24 hours left, I'd like to mention some key info for those joining us tomorrow. Please arrive at Whitehorn station no later than 9:45 AM tomorrow, and head into the station building where you'll find me and Yigal. Ticket cost will be $40/person. If you haven't already eTransferred it to me, please bring exact cash and hand it to us inside the station building, and we will give you your ticket and info brochure. We'll wait inside for the bus to arrive, as it'll be quite cold in the morning. Once it arrives we will ideally try to board and depart as quickly as we can. Please dress warmly! And don't forget hand sanitizer! (I'll have plenty on hand in case anyone needs some) We plan to return to Whitehorn at 4:00 PM tomorrow, though that is only an estimate and unforseen delays may occur. Anyone is free to leave the charter at any time and for any reason. See you all tomorrow!
  17. To answer any COVID-19 inquiries anyone might have, I'd like to make it apparent that this charter will continue as planned this Sunday. Although the virus has arrived in Calgary, it is an extremely small percentage of the population thus far and does not warrant the cancelling of the charter for the time being. I am entrusting all attendees to show up in good health and to be responsible enough to stay home if you're sick. Please bring hand sanitizer and practice proper etiquette and hygiene as you're with us this Sunday, as you all (hopefully) would in any circumstance anyway. As long as basic common sense is used, I'm 100% confident that this issue shouldn't hinder any of us from enjoying what is likely to be one of our last chances to ride a Series 50-powered D40LF in Calgary.
  18. Yes. There will be 12 photo stops plus a lunch stop. Photo stops will include a few reused locations from past charters but we'll mostly be experimenting with locations never used before.
  19. I was just informed by Scheduling that #7603 is also retired. So I have requested one of #7632, #7633 or #7636 as the charter bus with a remark that any 7600 will do if those aren't available either. With 10 days to go, I'm fully confident that we won't have an issue having a bus available.
  20. Added the following in February: YYG/CYYG (Charlottetown) YQB/CYQB (Quebec City) MKE/KMKE (Milwaukee) IND/KIND (Indianapolis)
