    Looks like Talgo has finally found that Nigerian Prince. The state of Wisconsin ordered 2 Talgo trainsets for an extension of the Hiawatha, but they were never used. Now the Government of Nigeria will purchase them for use on the new Lagos Blue Line commuter service. https://urbanmilwaukee.com/2022/01/18/talgos-wisconsin-trains-find-home-in-nigeria/
  2. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority 1964 Budd R32. The R32 retired on January 9, 2022, after 58 years of service. Seen is #3360 with a Brightliner banner.

  4. Academy has snatched up the 2005-2006 LFS buses. Listed here are their new numbers: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2170-2172 https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2173-2178 751 - 2170 752 - 2171 753 - 2172 761 - 2173 762 - 2174 763 - 2175 764- 2176 766 - 2177 767 - 2178
  5. It looks like they also inherited Tri-Rail's own 2016 ElDorados. They are now 2912-2915. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2912-2915
  6. 273, 278, 280, 281, and 282 are now Academy Bus 2066-2070. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines_2066-2070

  12. https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-hochul-announces-plans-move-forward-major-new-expansion-transit-service-brooklyn-and Governor Hochul Announces Plans to Move Forward with Major New Expansion of Transit Service in Brooklyn and Queens: The Interborough Express Governor Directs MTA to Begin Environmental Review Process for Transformative New Transit Line Would Serve More than 100,000 New Yorkers and Connect to Up to 17 Subway Lines and the Long Island Rail Road, Expanding Access to Jobs and Supporting Economic Development Travel Time End-to-End Expected to be Less Than 40 Minutes Governor Kathy Hochul today announced plans to move forward with the Interborough Express as part of her 2022 State of the State. Governor Hochul is directing the MTA to immediately begin the environmental review process for this transformative project, the first step in building this major infrastructure investment that would connect communities in Brooklyn and Queens to as many as 17 subway lines and the Long Island Rail Road. "It's time to invest in the bold, cutting-edge infrastructure projects that will make a real difference in the lives of everyday New Yorkers," Governor Hochul said. "New Yorkers deserve reliable public transit that connects them from work to home and everywhere in between. The Interborough Express would be a transformational addition to Brooklyn and Queens, cutting down on travel time and helping neighborhoods and communities become cleaner, greener and more equitable." "This project would smartly repurpose existing infrastructure to add mass transit and create access to jobs, education, and opportunity for so many residents of Queens and Brooklyn," said MTA Acting Chair and CEO Janno Lieber. "I applaud Governor Hochul's leadership, and we are enthusiastic to work with her, and Federal and State partners to advance the Interborough concept." Governor Hochul will direct the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to begin the environmental review process for the Interborough Express. This historic project would use the existing right of way of the Bay Ridge Branch, which is a freight rail line that runs through Brooklyn and Queens, connecting the ethnically and economically diverse neighborhoods of: Sunset Park, Borough Park, Kensington, Midwood, Flatbush, Flatlands, New Lots, Brownsville, East New York, Bushwick, Ridgewood, Middle Village, Maspeth, Elmhurst and Jackson Heights with several new stations in communities not currently served by rail transit. If adopted, this new service would improve transit and job access to underserved communities along this corridor that is currently home to about 900,000 residents and 260,000 jobs, and with growth expected by at least 41,000 people and 15,000 jobs in the next 25 years. For many residents along this corridor, crossing from neighborhood to neighborhood is slow and tedious because existing subway lines are oriented towards Manhattan, even as many new work opportunities, schools, and services are located in the outer boroughs. The project would provide critical mobility, creating better links for travel to and from Manhattan as well as key connections among neighborhoods, across boroughs, and opening up new opportunities for reverse commuting into Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Each day, more than 100,000 commuters make daily trips within or across Brooklyn and Queens, often relying on buses that get caught in traffic along a tangled and crowded street network. Results from this historic and necessary step could lead to a new service that would provide end-to-end travel time of less than 40 minutes, although most trips would be along shorter segments of the line. This would provide significant time savings for interborough Brooklyn and Queens trips compared with existing transit options. In addition to transit service, the existing Bay Ridge Branch corridor can service cross harbor rail freight and would dramatically reduce truck congestion regionally and expand goods movement facilities, thereby fortifying supply chains still struggling to recover from the pandemic. Transportation planners believe that cross harbor rail freight and passenger service on the Interborough Express can work together in concert, which could be a game-changer for the region. To that end Governor Hochul is also directing the Port Authority to complete environmental review for the Cross Harbor Rail Freight Tunnel.
  13. The R32s will continue running: https://www.reddit.com/r/nycrail/comments/rn0vzj/official_statement_from_new_york_transit_museum/
  14. According to the VIN, this has a Freightliner MB55 chassis. Could it be something along the line of Hyundai or Isuzu? IMG_8906 by GojiMet86, on Flickr
  15. The first R32 retirement run was a complete shitshow. Among the things: - A map holder and its R32 Retirement poster was stolen. - Rollsigns were changed (obviously without permission). - A window was cracked. - Some guy forced himself into the train and vaped. - People constantly changing cars through the storm doors (the doors in between cars). - A light fixture was broken. - A bench was broken. Because of all this, the 3 PM trip, and all trips after, were cancelled. The MTA crew are now feeling unsafe. https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1472665669040758796 From other sources on Facebook: There's a couple of videos on Twitter and FB of security contracted by the MTA pulling people off the train. The biggest shitshow I've seen by a long mile.

  17. This one is interesting, I wasn't expecting to see MTA Bus get Novas. It does break up the monopoly NFI has with the former Privates.

    It appears some Bombardier HHP-8 will be going back into service as non-functional control units for the Ethan Allen Express. Amtrak has already removed the pantographs from 691 (ex-661).
  20. Unfortunately, I'm just as clueless as you are. Every year, Academy provides carrier information to the WMATC, so you can see all the buses they currently run. However, it hasn't been updated since last year (presumably due to COVID). Usually we just wait for that list to come up. Here's the list of vehicles. Academy files under WMATC numbers 456 and 2520.
  21. $6.9 Billion of Second Avenue subway Phase II. https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-second-ave-subway-tunnel-gov-hochul-20211124-xdwpezc4mjg5hjy23jxjzl5ezi-story.html
  22. A base order of 6 NFI battery-electric XE40 for NICE, with options for up to 30 more. https://www.newflyer.com/2021/11/new-yorks-nice-orders-up-to-36-zero-emission-xcelsior-charge-ng-transit-buses-from-nfis-new-flyer/
  23. I always saw this company in the wiki as a coach company, but I wasn't aware it's also a railroad. So this is a completely different service from GO Transit or VIA Rail?
  24. Looks like the CRLVs are back in service.........for Disney
