    Buses, especially New Flyer. The D40(HF), and D901A are my favourite New Flyers. I also like the MCI TC40-102N Classic, and GMD T6H-4521. I like the Detroit Diesel S50, 6V71N and 6V92TA engines.

    Winnipeg Transit and area

    The west side of the Pembina CN rail bridge during demolition today. As a railfan, I agree that, it is sad to see the 1949 bridge go down. But the silver lining is that, as mentioned, the extra lanes will help traffic flow, and the path for bikes and pedestrians on the west side will be nice too, so you don't need to cross Pembina twice just to get past the tracks.

    The map on the Winnipeg Transit website for Route 74 highlights a couple of bus stops on Arbour Meadow Gate, and they show 74 on those bus stops, although the line still doesn't go in there, and those are currently the only 2 stops highlighted in there.

    The price is still $2.95 right? I find it weird I got on with only $2.60 ($0.35 less). I'm 19, with a beard and stuff.

    Something interesting happened to me today. I rode a bus today (#751 on 95) as part of personal stuff. I usually pay by coins and today was no exception. I had my $2.95 in hand, and put the coins in when I got on. But soon, as I also had a coin rejected, the driver told me I was good, after I had put in $2.60. Not sure what happened there, but I'm not complaining.

    Southwest Transitway Rapid Transit Project

    The new Letellier tracks at Portage Junction (Parker Avenue) are now complete and in service. It was completed between Monday and Thursday. I would agree, that is probably it, with the new Letellier tracks now finished and in service. I'm gonna miss that bridge. The videos (and pictures) I have of it will be a nice time capsule in the future, along with the old Letellier tracks. I'll definitely have to try to get some pictures, maybe video, of the demolition.

    Traffic lights up at Chevrier. I could also see the Clarence lights from there.

    Hurst Way Routes?

    When the whole project around Waverley/Hurst/Taylor is said and done, there will be bus stops at Hurst @ Waverley, which did not exist before. Anyone have a clue what routes might be going through here? Something like a 64/164 possibly? Maybe even 84/86/184/186? Maybe something brand new? I don't really know.

    The buses we have go all the way back to 1995. If the buses can drive the route safely, then 47. It seems like it's always beyond full when I ride it. Doesn't the 160, which does get 60 ft buses, go to Balmoral Station?

    Would be, interesting, if they turned Fort into a transit mall.

    200s refurbished

    Which is what? New seats? Replaced HVAC? New Lights? New Route Displays? New Brakes? New Doors?

    200s refurbished

    What are the difference between a refurbished and non-refurbished 2xx?

    Well, if for some reason they wanted all the buses to be 1000 and up (nothing below 1000 at all), then I imagine they would add 1000 to the existing buses, then go from there.

    I like to photograph and ride the orange D30LF's whenever I get the chance (I did when I rode Route 110 and 102 recently), because I like that paint scheme and I miss it. The modern schemes are boring IMO. The orange makes them easier to see in the winter too. White doesn't really contrast well against white, orange contrasts well against white.
