  1. The gates are a good idea but in areas like Banff Station people go under the gates as soon as the outbound train goes by not seeing the inbound train coming into the station. They have also installed emergency exit swing gates that pedestrians use to cross the tracks when the regular gates are down. It just goes to show but no matter how many safety measures are put in place people will disobey them on purpose if they can. We now have a Ctrain operator and his or her family that has to deal with this for the rest of his or her life. Trust me everyone, I know by experience how it affects the intire family of an operator when an incident like this happens.
  2. Headphone ban?? Give me a break... that's not going to work... people still bring there bikes on the trains during rush hour.. smoke on platforms and fare evasion is a problem.
  3. Yes. I've been a LRT operator for almost 10 years in Calgary.
  4. It happened last night. I've had many close calls and that location.
  5. Good to hear. I spoke to a Siemens tech and there was supposed to me a hardware / software update to correct some issues.
  6. Yes 2411 has been in service. I seen it last week! Nice find! That's car 2401 on a test drive. I remember seeing it tuning with a green block!
  7. New gadgets new problems...
  8. Confirmed 2102 is being decommissioned at OBMF.
  9. Looks like 2102 is possibly being decommissioned and being readied for scrap! Exterior doors have been removed.
  10. Full speed ahead! http://m.edmontonsun.com/2017/02/15/metro-line-set-to-speed-up-after-restrictions-lifted-for-intersections
  11. Good old back window. I like the back windows on those buses because I can see right through the bus when I'm driving on the Avenue this way I know if there's another bus ahead of it at Center Street Station otherwise my train won't fit on the platform😉
  12. That's great thanks!
  13. Absolutely devastating to hear this. As a Calgary Transit operator and a member of ATU 583 my condolences go to all my fellow ATU brothers and sisters and family of the operator.
  14. Poor 152 I remember riding that bus many times. So far away from home
