  1. Haha! Seen that too. Is that part of the historical Fleet?😆
  2. I got some more news on car 2077. They spent six days working on multiple door issues until yesterday when it was decided to scrap the car.
  3. Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    I don't think they touched the paint. Just interior stuff and a new coupler.
  4. By all means I'm not offended at all. I should point out the "service guy" was one of the "service guys" (electro mechanic) that is actually decommissioning the vehicles. The lane line up personnel also are aware that those cars are not to be put into service anytime soon. Can you imagine these guys building a consist with a decommissioned car in the middle of it? That would be a sight to see!
  5. Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    😆 I hope they hurry up we need cars bad I think there's a pretty good shortage right now.
  6. Okay hang on a second here.... I took a closer look on car 2077. it looks like to me that they're doing some corrosion repairs around the floor area where the doors attached. there is so much corrosion in this area they're definitely patching this car up I got a little bit more life in to it. funny thing I was told by a service guy that these cars were toast
  7. The SD160s have A/C (yes I know it's a train.. I really wanted to be part of the conversation)
  8. Calgary Transit

    For the most part the replies that I've seen are pretty bang on to what I would have said. As far as single-tracking in bi-directional territory this can only happen between Whitehorn and Saddletowne on the Blue Line and of course on the West LRT. Everywhere else on the blue line it's all manual. The operator is required to have a manual block system clearance permit issued by control and a whole bunch of other things need to happen before a train can be routed through "against the current of traffic". It's actually more common then you think to see trains travel through bi-directional territory or the current traffic. It works very well, rail control can select a routing for a specific train and the operator actually has control of the interlockings (with permission of control of course) and is able to route itself in case rail control is unable too. As far as ordering trains Siemens will build you anything you want... One cab cars has been brought up for the series 9s... logistically it would be near impossible to have a train with a cab pointed in the right direction at any given time. We have to remember back in the day we used to run one car trains. And even very recently we have been running two car trains between Brentwood and Tuscany stations while maintenance work was being conducted in the northwest. Besides there really wouldn't be that much of a cost savings with the one cab so the dual cabs were kept on the S200s Calgary Transit got a really good deal on these cars... I believe they paid just under 3.5 million and. for each car. The U2's are beyond toast... they are so done and need to be replaced right away. Calgary Transit biggest issue with the U2s right now is corrosion and lack of parts. Edmonton Transit U2's are an unbelievable condition even before they're refurb they were absolutely amazing. However Edmonton Transit U2s are in desperate need for parts... Rumor Has It Edmonton Transit is receiving three or four of the Calgary's cars for parts just to keep theirs going.. (oops did I just spill the beans?) Calgary Transit used to have two AC-U2 cars cars 2101 and 2102. Recently car 2102 was retired and car 2101 was retrofitted into a state-of-the-art catenary and rail inspection vehicle. It's been named "The Scout"
  9. Well! Looks like cars 2042, 2043, 2052 & 2077 are the next ones to be scrapped. They're all coupled up together and they're taking apart car 2077 right now. This will probably be the final image of these cars in one piece. Car 2077 has already had some of its doors and door motors removed on the other side.
  10. CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    Okay how does this sound "Series 9 Discussion S200 deliveries and spottings"
  11. CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    On second thought it would be nice to keep this thread all in one location is it shows the evolution of the idea of the series 9 and to what we got today I don't know what everyone thinks about that
  12. CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    This topic was started 7 years ago when I first heard of the series 9 cars and its evolved to this.
  13. Not retired yet but here's car 2052 definitely one of the worst ones rusted-out
