    58 is out and about on the Red Line as a single-car right now.

    *Squints* one of the few times I'm glad a few weeks of public use will help tone down the colour intensity...

    Took a 20 last week and it seems it now has all the stops announced/displayed, at least between Brentwood and Superstore Huntington. However, the phrasing is so belaboured that the short distances between stops along that route means the relevant part of the announcement comes just a little too late for the stop itself. Not sure if that's a one-off situation and the timings are better on other runs, or if it's more chronic and I should submit a request.

    Did a little -20C shoot today to see if the camera would function - it did! Finally get that nice snow cloud. Also 2421 on a training run.

    Not sure if I like it or not, but it sure is neat! Good thing I had a new lens when I spotted it today:

    A rather garish addition to University Station today...

    Random Ctrain pics

    When rarity is mistaken for newness... The terrible lower spine-crushing lumbar "support" placement on the side seats, though...

    Just saw it doing a solo run through downtown eastbound.

    Was trying to keep my data use to a minimum! Which, incidentally, makes me mildly irritated at the lack of a route number on the MAX stops - Teletext doesn't understand MO/MP/MT, and you have to text 30X. But since the 30X numbers are not advertised anywhere, I would think most users wouldn't know which number to use.

    They were giving out polished versions of those tire profiles at the Doors Open YYC at Oliver Bowen a few years ago - I still have mine on a bookshelf.

    I was planning on using the 1 to go eastbound last night, but nothing showed up when texting the stop number or when going through the main schedule - the late night runs only showed up in the planned schedule if I clicked through the link on the holiday service page.

    Which is now open, but covered with temporary non-skid/absorbent mats.
