    Adieu MR-63

    They did open the door on element 016 today. Though there were too many people crowding the door when I went in, rather similarly to the Azur's inaugural.

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    Grade separating everything without any level crossings regardless of tunnel or viaduct will always be infinitely better than a street-level LRT. Look up SkyTrain For Surrey and you'll all know what the problems will be with street-level LRT.

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    I have a strong feeling that the Baseline to Fallowfield section will be elevated like Hurdman Station. The number of intersections there would plague the reliability of the rail service.

    I really look forward to see what will the hybrid articulated buses will look like. If that goes to Nova, here is what it looks like in Quebec City:

    York Region Transit \ Viva

    Regarding using route 20 to Canada's Wonderland, the stop at Norwood / Jane is the closest to the park entrance. Measuring the distance on Google Earth, the distance from that stop to the entrance is actually slightly shorter than the walk from Wonderland Terminal to the entrance. Personally I prefer the 20 over the 760 as the former runs more frequently and also is a shorter ride to the subway.

    The Trillium Line

    My guess is that the 4-car configuration would look something like this. Instead of one door per car there would be two. Fast forward to 5:07. Also in the Estonian version the diesel engine acts as a generator, and there are electric motors in the axles at either end. And also 4:34 here. Also note multiple-unit operation, something Ottawa could consider if platform extensions could be done.
