    How did GWR trains get to Brantford?

    On google maps, there's a gap in the trees where the track used to be that shows remnants of a wye.

    I guess that's where some of the corridor coaches went... Means that I'll have to book early if I want a ticket home for the holidays.

    Budds are being rebuilt, so probably not. I'm noticing that the 6/7 car trains doing Toronto-London have been shortened to 5 car trains.

    Yeah, but aside from viewing information about a card the lack of the ability for a driver to interact with the presto devices poses a challenge when express and cross-boundary fares need to be deducted. It baffles me how the TTC didn't figure this out sooner.

    I thought the response was ridiculous and unbelievable and I didn't think that the TTC was that stupid. I feel bad now though, it isn't smallspy's fault.

    Not necessarily if it's displayed on the VISION console. If that's the case then the app that fare inspectors use to query cards is also a privacy violation.

    I thought you were speculating, I didn't think that was an actual confirmed answer. It would still be something that would be nice to have given that 2-hour transfers are now a thing.

    Hey Bus Medic, Did you ever find out the answer to my question? I think it would be a helpful feature now that 2-hour transfers have been rolled out. It would be nice to find out how much time you have left.

    Saw 912 hooked up to the Glenfraser at the TMC if anyone is interested.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    In the same way some airlines only operate one type of aircraft (less parts, less training, etc.) Also, automatic train control is used on line 1 and the TTC decided not to retrofit the T1s with it.

    Saw this at the TMC while on train 76.

    Yeah but 75/70 is stainless steel only on Thursdays and Fridays. The conversion of 73/78 to LRC cut the use of stainless steel more than in half since 73/78 used HEP2s daily except for Saturdays.

    Does anyone have pics of a renovated HEP2, I think i saw a video promoting musicians on VIA that showed the seat fabrics being replaced with green ones but I'm not sure. Also, I've noticed that Toronto to Windsor is mainly LRCs now.

    I was talking about the VISION system the TTC was rolling out. I think the transit agencies you listed are using first gen equipment that isn't integrated with the bus tracking/dispatch system.

    Can drivers check card balances, concessions, etc. on the screen?
