  1. Russian cosmonaut Valery Polyakov has died at age 80. He was the one who spent the most total time in space. https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/20/europe/valery-polyakov-russian-cosmonaut-dead-intl-scli-scn/index.html
  2. Delete this https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:BC_Transit_9548.jpg
  3. Beautiful. Looks like a much better seating layout than the TTC counterparts.
  4. Driver seats are always equipped with a 3 point seatbelt. The more interesting part is whether passenger seats have a 3 point seatbelt. The newest GO Transit double deckers have them and so there has been quite a bit of speculation whether the 214xx have the passenger seatbelts or not.
  5. Thích Nhất Hạnh, Vietnamese monk, has died. https://bookriot.com/thich-nhat-hanh/
  6. As a regular TransLink rider, I just have to appreciate how BC Transit's next stop voice is so much better than the CMBC next stop voice. The BC Transit voice is much closer to human speech, vs the robotic, often unclear voice on CMBC.
  7. Titan Airways A321neo G-GBNI visited YVR yesterday on a tech stop from Toronto on its way to Hawaii. It was chartered for the Royal Air Force.
  8. Given the postponement of in-person classes at UBC, expect the entry of service of articulated buses on the 84 to be pushed further this month, due to lower demand.
  9. Flying on the X-Plane 11 flight simulator on an Air New Zealand Dash 8 from Christchurch to Queenstown. There's so much fun about flight simulators in general.
  10. Is Hamilton usually the place where new buses are received? As far as I know I think some of these will be transferred to Vancouver for service on the 84.
  11. Archbishop Desmond Tutu dies at 90. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-59793726
  12. Sources say there was a train fire at Templeton station, resulting in the closure of the YVR branch. Very hard to prove what happened as so far, no one has sent pictures of the situation (very unusual in the age of social media)
  13. It's different as it's the Arial font, which doesn't look as nice as the custom TransLink font
  14. This was on December 13, it was the 150th anniversary of the birth of Emily Carr, Canada's most famous artist.
  15. Travelled on BC Ferries from Victoria to Vancouver today after a 2 night stay in Victoria to celebrate Emily Carr's 150th birthday.
  16. One of the new units were spotted in Arizona, which is strange as there appears not to be an ADL-related plant there. The units will be numbered 21401-21425. It was photographed together with a Las Vegas unit. - https://www.instagram.com/p/CXI2iY_FeEK/ Also, has any unit from this 2021 order arrived at any of CMBC's facilities yet, and whether there's a definitive delivery schedule?
  17. Here's the tweet in question: Also in the Vancouver transit discord someone posted of seeing a TransLink XDE60 from the new order in Montana.
