  1. Saw it late last year being pulled a GE as it passed through Kingston, got some photos of it at Joyceville. Knew it was coming as the scanner said ten axles, one engine and the car. Remember it had an odd number (odd as in not even) even though it was an eastbound. I don't know if there was anything to help the loco and car couple but I did not check. Tried to tell a few people about it as no one seemed to know, just a few messages that it was coming, but no one seemed to care so,..
  2. September 5, train 519 derailed as it was taking the siding at Ernestown with one car coming to rest fouling the main line. Train 48, with a P42 leading, which was running 20 minutes behind had an allision with the derailed car that damaged the entire right side of train 48. Passengers transferred to train 650, which was running behind 48. Train 650, which normally terminates at Kingston carried on to Ottawa that night. Was listening to it on the scanner. It was train 692 to Winnipeg

    Hey Guys

    Just to let you know that due to recent events in my life I have lost all interest in the whole transit scene and I will no longer be posting here. I wish you all the best and take care guys.
  4. Oh that was the one on Barlow where the passenger had been sitting in the rear corner when the truck hit.
  5. $omething that a LRT driver might be able to afford???$$$
  6. That looks like a GTA game!
  7. You're not going to offer it a good home? Only $2,200, plus transportation costs, registration, insurance. Then you need to find somewhere to store it.
  8. Which makes sense and is the same as mentioned in the video I posted above. Just sad that such a law has to be passed in the first place. But unless the city is going to have a CPS or PS officer at every crossing then it won't mean anything.
  9. Looks like California passed a law about wearing both earbuds while cycling or driving. Of course there is nothing about pedestrians. Just surprised that someone passed a law, or that there was a need to, but not surprised that people, as shown in this video, choose to ignore it.
  10. Nope, hence why they will walk out in front of moving cars expecting the cars to stop, even if it isn't a crosswalk. Or if it is a crosswalk will run out without checking to see if any vehicles are approaching.
  11. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/calgary-c-train-fatalities-headphone-ban-1.3995225 Can't see how they would enforce this.
  12. Well they say there is an area similar to the 'Bermuda Triangle' in the east end of Lake Ontario southwest of Kingston called the 'Marysburgh Vortex'. Maybe it was on route 10 and got a little 'lost' on the way. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marysburgh_vortex

    Thanks Tallis, really appreciate it being removed from the front page!
  14. Whenever I drive around in the country side I often wonder if there is an old bus parked on a farm, or behind a building. Sometimes it turns out to be true!
