    OMSI - omnibus simulator

    Only Chicago is payware, but the rest are freeware. Speaking of which, here's an updated list to reflect only maps publically available as of right now (excluding Facebook threads): Chicago Downtown (Illinois, USA; payware, includes a D40LF and a DE60LF) Daytonford County 1995-2015 (Michigan, USA) Grundelphia (Pennsylvania and New Jersey, USA) New John City (Ontario, Canada) Liberty (New York, USA) Willshire (Ontario, Canada) Cayuga, USA (fictitious state between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, USA) Cayuga Midwest (fictitious state between Illinois and Indiana, USA) New Era Transit (New York, USA) No Detroit maps are currently available at this moment, though I am working on a fictionalized Detroit map that I hope to have out by the end of this year. Also, the Porais website is temporarily offline, though there is another site that has, for free download, almost all of the buses that were on Porais: https://mta3306.github.io/mtaWebSite/downloadspage.html

    Transit Related Dreams

    I had a dream last night that I went to a reopened Michigan Central Station which had rebuilt it's shed. For some reason I boarded an eastbound DDOT 19 from one of the platforms and once I got into downtown Detroit for some bizarre reason I was teleported to an identical-looking train station...in Chicago. After having to endure a huge crowd, a restored CTA 6000-Series train (painted in their bicentennial scheme) arrived and I got on the train, which somehow had white walls and aisle seating. While describing this on my cell phone, the train began moving right down various streets towards the Chicago Loop as if it were a bus. Then as we entered the Loop proper, we suddenly turned into a loading bay area that opened up (like something you'd see out of Star Trek or Star Wars) to reveal a subway tunnel portal. As we went through that portal, there was...to make this even weirder...an entire TTC Gloucester subway train passed us heading in the opposite direction, all while I heard the Rush song "Twilight Zone" blaring from somewhere. It turned out that a movie about Rush was being filmed at that exact time and I somehow managed to land a role in the movie as an extra!

    If You Could Restore 1 Bus, What Would It Be?

    Here's another PCC that I would love to see operational again.

    Did you ever drop/break your camera?

    Welp, since then, I've dropped it twice. One of these times was back in December 2017 while checking out Christmas lights in downtown Detroit.

    General WTF Moments

    While I was in the Detroit Institute of Arts today, someone decided for an unknown reason to turn on the fire alarms. It caught me by big surprise and even came close to damaging my ears.

    Even though the 2018 LFSes have pretty much taken over the Tunnel Bus lately, there are still occasions when a different bus will be on at least one of the runs. For example, today 2013 XD40 632 was spotted on a Tunnel Bus run in Detroit.

    I had a dream either last night or the night before that DDOT was renumbering additional routes because they decided to add additional routes to their ConnectTen system (and probably renaming it to reflect the new routes too).

  15. I upload a wide variety of things on my Youtube page (in fact I use a different name there than I do here), but just yesterday I decided to get back into transit ride videos. I so far have two episodes from this season of rides on two of SMART's Gillig BRTs on route 125.
