  1. Calgary's streetcar rail also has a flatter profile on the rail head then standard rail head. You can actually feel it with your foot when you walk on it at Somerset when you're Crossing CP Rail and C train rail crossing I also have a sliver of a wheel from one of the C train tires. My dad has a chunk of regular rail and I made a comparison there's quite the difference on the profile. The Calgary cars can easily be towed on the Edmonton rails.. but an Edmonton car would have to be on trucks because it would tear up the frogs in the switches because of the flange difference. Prime example would be the Calgary cars crossing into the CP spur at haysboro.
  2. Not sure why they were removed it could have been a clearance issue? But if they really wanted to disable the pantographs it would have just popped a breaker in the articulation or disconnect the batteries
  3. That's awesome! Those two cars are actually pretty decent I remember driving them late spring of this year. They ran all by themselves to Anderson from OBMF and from Anderson to Haysboro until they were towed off mainline to the CPrail spur.

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    I wonder what that cost was..I wonder since there part of the same order or not, are they designated as a series 9 or 10?
  6. WAIT! I want that destination sign!
  7. Interesting. Maybe this time they can send it with a truck. This is what's left of 2066 and Edmonton I'm sure this was posted on this forum on the Edmonton side..

    So that's kind of confusing? Is this a permanent livery for these buses? Or is it just advertisements?

    Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    Unfortunately I do too.. operators get pretty upset when that happens it affects everyone including there family and friends. Sometimes the operators can't cope with fatality incidents at all.. I'm sure some of the members on this board know exactly what I'm talking about!

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    I was worried that it was going to break down and completely forgot to post it!
  11. Spare parts anybody?
  12. Keeping a watch on 2049 and 2074. From what I hear they are next for scrap. Another 2, 3 more cars are also slated for scrap as well but I'm unable to confirm the unit numbers.

    It sure has been! I've driven it a few times already in the last few weeks😊
  14. So car 2011 was involved in an incident with a bus last year did it ever see service after that incident? I would say NOT... Let's not forget 2019 and 2027 made 2090 so we kind of gained one sort of..
