  1. Yes it does the overhead wires have been deenergized for construction so operators are supposed to drop their poles at 3rd and pike heading towards queen Anne and their are pans to allow the operator to flip a switch and if aligned right the poles would reconnect without the operator having to get out and these are at 1st and broad st i believe and the same for going the opposite direction drop poles at 3rd and cedar and raise at 3rd and union in front of Benoroya Hall
  2. Anyone have any info on why the 7200's out of South base don't have their engines turning off when they stop seems to be something that I've noticed in the last few days
  3. You can find them at Metro's customer service office or the Westlake tunnel station on the mezzanine level they have the big kiosks with all the schedules
  4. It's possible that they were used this evening and are back at the base since we are at the second half of rush hour there are some tripper's that are already done for the evening by this time and it's also possible that those coaches are waiting for repairs
  5. East base is always short on 60 Footers because they're always backed up on maintenance so the gillig's bounce around from run to run
