  1. I'd think the safety risks of running a train through a crossover that's even partially occupied by unmovable equipment far outweigh the benefits. What if the derailment was caused by a misaligned switch and you derail a second train through the same crossover as a result?
  2. I wouldn't bother wasting time trying to talk sense into them. You'd have a more productive conversation with an eggplant. At the very least, the eggplant wouldn't come back every few weeks with the same complaint.
  3. I am going to suggest finding a new record to play. That one's broken.
  4. Somewhat rusty and now retired STO 9414, a 1994 NovaBus Classic, seen at the Rideau Center operating on route 39 to Portage, in July 2016.
  5. You can change that rock background to something else; as the notice at the top says, there's a button at the end of the row with your username that lets you change it. The options seem to be limited, however I changed mine to the red image and I think it looks really good.
  6. What's the use in even answering questions anymore if people are going to just keep asking them over and over again anyways expecting a "better" response.
  7. Did you not like the answer you got the thousand other times you've asked the same question?
  8. Who cares? Considering the same 8620 series Novas you're complaining about are a mere two years old at most I fail to see what the big deal is.
  9. Given that the knob says Vapor on it I'm sure that design is on the door manufacturer. Is it even (still?) possible for a transit agency to specify who makes the doors on a given bus?
  10. Doesn't seem to stop them from being in business, and seemingly doing decent business at that. I repeat what has been said countless times in slightly different words: no one wanted the Orion VII EPA10. What evidence is there that suggests anyone is going to want the same design but with a New Flyer badge on the front instead?
  11. Good job derailing the whole topic. Like it or not, native English speakers or not, the vast majority of people don't read signs. And furthermore, you simply can't put up signs for each of the thousands if not millions of possible languages someone speaks.
  12. One guess would be that they're considered trucks rather than buses, which isn't too far off. Another would be just because.
