    As some here predicted: "In other news, TTC CEO's latest report says Bombardier target of delivering 70 streetcars by the end of the year is in "serious doubt." CEO Andy Byford has "insisted" Bombardier publicly clarify the status before next week's TTC board meeting." - Ben Spurr (@BenSpurr)

    Latest on the Churchill situation and the engineering report that projects what it would cost to repair the line. The CBC article has a link to the report and I've downloaded the PDF. See here for a copy of the PDF.

    Tweets from Ben Spurr who is at today's TTC meeting: Byford says Bombardier has confirmed 70 total cars is still year-end target, but "they have said to me that figure is now challenging. As recently as last week Bomb. told me they were meeting all their targets. But they've told TTC achieving year-end target is a stretch Byford says Bomb. has rented an Antonov cargo plane to carry parts from Europe, instead of shipping them by sea. Most streetcars that Bomb. has had to deliver in one month so far this year is 3, in May. Will have to do 8 in Nov. (scheduled attached)

    I should know this but what's a "turnout"?

    Commuter rail coming to Vancouver Island? Not sure if VIA would operate it. Press conference today: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/is-commuter-rail-returning-to-victoria-transportation-minister-to-unveil-plans-1.4017047

    I was taking the GO train to Burlington today and noticed the RDCs parked in the Mimico yard. I several of the RDCs have been tagged with graffiti. Do anyone know what VIA Rail plans to do with these RDCs? It's sad to see them just sitting their collecting graffiti. I couldn't get a picture on the way by but here's a Google satellite image from July 2015.
