  1. I would assume he means when the conductors stick their heads out of the windows as the train departs, but personally I don't see how that's a health and safety risk, but ok.
  2. Pretty unrelated, but I was searching around the Port Lands area on Google Maps when I stumbled across what looks to be a MTA RTS parked (in 2009). Anybody know something about this, or was it just a movie bus? There seems to be a ton of old RVs and small buses rotting in that area. https://www.google.ca/maps/@43.65,-79.3394481,3a,27.3y,132.81h,81.57t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s4HJl4FjQNHGm2_WIs3jh1A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Ps. Interesting to see the rail infrastructure's decline through the years on Basin St. Wonder when the last time a train ran on those.
  3. I can't find what models they will be anywhere, are they going to be a continuation of the Flexities? (mb if this is a stupid question)
  4. Weren't they going to renovate or demolish Russell?

  6. Thing is with this, I live around the area and use Glencairn everyday, they completed this work like 6-8 months ago, this is nothing new.
  7. I don't know what you're getting at with the yield sticker, but i can definitely see the faded number underneath the new one. It was in the area today, so I thought i'd go snap a quick photo of it.
  8. I agree, @Express Network, let's keep it the way it is.
  9. We will have to see if it enters service again, and when/if it does, we will mark it as active.
  10. Harder or not, it's not like it hasn't happened before. https://www.blogto.com/city/2018/11/man-spotted-surfing-atop-ttc-bus-toronto/
  11. Really? I saw it on Caledonia about a week and a half ago, took a picture because it didn't have a bike rack. Maybe it was transferring back to a garage?
  12. Three TTC/TPS Events Support Orion VIIs sit waiting, in front of an EMS Emergency Transport bus, in Obico yard. From left to right, ES-5 (Ex. 7905) , ES-0 (Ex. 7900), ES-4 (Ex. 7908) and 7955 (EMS). Shot on Saturday, August the 1st, 2020.
  13. The latest board, just posted, (however from June 19th) says that there are 99 80xx Orion 7s in service. Don't know if this is still the case, but possibly only 1 out of 8058 and 8095 have retired?
  14. I guess this is kind of stupid, but maybe to act as a mule as well? IIRC, the flexities can't be pushed, like the CLRVs can by a truck, so maybe to pull dead flexities? As well as other things mentioned above.
