    TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    So I guess the words "in 2003" don't mean anything?

    Thursday sighting I forgot to post: 8040, route 164 LeBreton, at Bridgestone drive 17:07.

    D60LF (6351-6403) Refurbishment

    Spotted it strutting its shiny paint job down Equestrian drive out of service about 15 or so minutes ago, probably on a 256 as there were passengers on board.

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    1122 was out testing on the western alignment today. Below is an awful photograph of it entering Bayview station from the northern-most track. It was on the southern most track earlier, so I'd guess they're low-speed testing some of the crossovers.

    Route 104 seems to be getting regular hybrid workings this booking for some reason. Today I saw 5048 (Hurdman 11:28), 5166 (Blair 14:05) and 5175 (Carleton 16:56) working the 104. Also boarded 6562 on route 24 St-Laurent at Blair station 11:49.

    OC Transpo Retired Bus(es) Whereabouts

    That seller really needs to be more proactive about removing their ads when the item sells! You can't tell from this photograph, but that is 5583. It's been sitting in that driveway for about a week now.

    OC and STO service disruptions

    All signals I saw were showing stop (red) even when a less restrictive aspect should theoretically have been presented if the system was working, which is consistent with a communications issue or a track-related problem. They had trainsets idling at Bayview and both Carleton platforms until around noon today.

    5135, route 104 Carleton, boarded at Hurdman station 9:35. 5093, route 104 Place D'Orleans, at Carleton 10:22. 5049, route 104 Place D'Orleans, at Carleton 12:12. 5105, route 107 South Keys, at Carleton 12:32. 5130, route 104 Place D'Orleans, at Carleton 12:33. 5071, route 94 Millennium, exiting Tunney's Pasture station 16:51.
  10. Neither is stalking a traffic camera and posting a low resolution screenshot in which you can't even tell what you're looking at, but I suppose that I expect too much.

    8043, route 282 Mackenzie King, at Queensway station 8:54. 5145, route 104 Carleton, at Carleton University 16:47. 5052, route 277 Nepean Woods, at Bayview station 17:02. 8142, route 164 LeBreton, at Queensway station 17:21.

    5087, 104 Place D'Orleans, at Carleton 16:53. 5099 was also signed 104 Place D'Orleans in the (temporary) Carleton layup area around the same time, but it changed to out of service and left a few minutes later so I have no idea if it ever ran a trip on the 104.
  13. Probably because ridership across all trips throughout the entire service day warrant such cuts. Just because ridership on a portion of a single run of each route was "similar" doesn't mean that ridership on the whole route over the course of a day is similar. And besides, if ridership is similar with the cuts in place, then the cut obviously made sense.

    8151, route 161 Terry Fox, turning onto Eagleson Road from Cope at 17:58.
  15. This is a NovaBus delivery tracking thread. 7901 isn't a newly delivered Nova bus...
