    @TechSpotlight Here's a rendering of the Calgary U2 interior from the late 70s / early 80s I'm pretty sure I've posted this before but it would be almost impossible to find it

    I don't think that's accurate. Maybe a small handful were refurbished and that's about it. Most of the U2's are in their original condition with exceptions of some minor interior upgrades. They still have the original Calgary 88 Olympics decal on them! Before the Series 8s where purchased Bombardier came to town to check out the cars and see what they to do with them as the Edmonton cars for being refurbished. The Calgary cars were too far gone then the Edmonton cars. I believe the price quote came in at over 2 million dollars a car and would not improve reliability it was more of a cosmetic refurb and would pose a shortage on cars and cause issues with service as they would be rebuilt. The idea was ditched 38 SD160s were purchased and the decision was made to eventually decommission the U2 cars with the Series 9 cars. Originally 20 series 9 cars were purchased for the U2 replacements but I'm pretty sure we seen more than 20 U2 cars get decommissioned in recent times.

    I don't think we're going to see that happening anytime soon at least in my lifetime. There is no planning set up in the near future for that to happen. If anything like that would ever happen I would imagine the tunnel section under the library and the interlocking would probably remain the same. It would be really cool to see a Red line train detour onto Blue Line tracks to get through a disruption or something...

    The S200s were never ad wrapped.
  6. Hope they figure out the signal system by then...
  7. Yes you're right. The buses came in bare metal and everything else that's not metal comes in white. I'm very sorry for the miscommunication. Let's move on.

    It's funny how I hear about this stuff before it gets published out on on the media. Great tool I hope it works for people that need to use it.

    That or it was off route.. pretty common for one of those buses to go off route in that area.
