  2. Bronson/Heron announces itself as "Mooney's Bay Station" as well. I suppose they're considering them part of the same station now.

  6. GOA transit news, info etc

    You can't use incompatible trains on the same line. Those three Bombardier units would require extensive reworking to make them compatible with the LINT fleet, not to mention a complete rebuild since they are 20 years old, AND one unit needs repairs after a derailment. It's not even remotely worth the taxpayer dollars when the cost of all of that falls in line with the cost of new trainsets, and you have to buy a large number of trainsets anyways: even assuming no spares and airport units being a single trainset (where the rest are double, unless that's changed) and six trains on the mainline with two doing the airport spur (ie roughly status quo frequency), we need 14 trains, eight more than we have now. To maintain existing spare ratios (or even come close), we need well over 20. Even as much as I think the Talent is a better design than the LINT by a long shot (interior layout at least), there's no chance of them running here again.

    They're getting buses. Who cares whether or not they're new? It's not like a bus from 2015 will refuse to pick you up where one from 2018 won't.
