  1. Even on top of that, I hardly believe the government's focus is on improving buses in Toronto right now, or even if they did, the cash to fork out for it. And on top of that, are bus companies even accepting orders right now? I don't think all the assembly line workers are 6 ft apart, but i don't know
  2. Plus, on addition to what BusMedic said, buses aren't nearly able to carry full capacity. Without the seats near the driver, and having to stay 6 feet away from others, i don't think buses can even carry more than 10 people (40ft).
  3. once again, forget the centennial thing, all im asking if it's possible to couple these cars together and run them as 1 train.
  4. its a simple question into if these coaches can be coupled together, i'm not trying to start a revolution. A question like this certainly does not take away from people's jobs.
  5. Hi all, I was watching a video of the train of Many Colours in New York (for those who don't know, it's a 9-10 car train made up of old preserved subway cars, painted in various schemes, hence "all colours"), and i began to wonder, would the TTC ever do that, perhaps for the centennial next year? Possibly take 2 h4 work cars, preserve them in previous operating fashion, and get the Montreallers and the Gs from Halton, and create something like this? Can these cars be coupled together, and driven as one single train? maybe my foam is leaking again, who knows thx
  6. thats because its not a transit bus, its a winery tours bus. similiar to a toronto zoo "van"
  7. yep, orion Vs, those strange d40 things, and fishbowls used to do some routes
  8. TTC 5276 leading a consist of T1s, on the eastbound Bloor-Danforth, near the Byng Ave. pedestrian bridge, in the afternoon of the 18th of April, 2020.
  9. Didn't they also have critically bad frame issues? I had always thought thats why New York never bought them (https://www.timeout.com/newyork/blog/the-mta-just-bought-200-diesel-buses-to-use-during-the-l-train-shutdown-043017, also see https://www.nyctransitforums.com/topic/50367-new-york-mta-buy-200-ex-ttc-orion-vii-diesels/, again idk how much truth there is to these pages) I had heard somewhere that the reason 7575 was kept alive, and reserved for preservation (btw whats happening with that) was because it's frame was in good condition. That's a large "should be". These delays to the crosstown are becoming quite a norm. When people get paid by the hour with public money, things go quite slow.
  10. I second that from the star: https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2020/04/21/decommissioned-ttc-buses-to-be-used-by-toronto-paramedics.html
  11. That's information that is on the wiki. Yes, It's true for the 79xx buses, but for the NGs, idk.
