  1. Not really sure what category this PED signal fits into, but at Russel/Southvale there are some LED signals with square hoods. https://goo.gl/maps/99UvNjHZj3ZFVpfC9
  2. On the bus stop schedules it says January 5th I believe.
  3. 4716-42 Blair at Trainyards Farm Boy - 1:10
  4. HCRR is quickly turning into the UTDC preservation society!
  5. Can confirm Smyth/Botsford/Dauphin is still active, with 3 old and in poor shape 8-8-8s still all incandescent. Walkley/Halifax has a few incandescent ped signals, but all traffic signals have been replaced. Walkley/Tim Hortons (just west of Walkley/Conroy) has some incandescents left as well.
  6. 4204 Powered up at the HCRR after being delivered.
  7. Smyth/Roger Guindon has been completely converted to new LED signals
  8. Here is a photo from last weekend of the old incandescent that still lives (for now) at Bronson/417. If I remember correctly, all of the other signals have been replaced with new LEDs. (Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving)
  9. That’s correct, route 140 shouldn’t be signed ‘Heron Park’. If anything it should say ‘Herongate’, or if you want to reference the area north of Heron that it serves, maybe they could use ‘Guildwood Estates’ or ‘Featherstone’, or more generally just ‘Alta Vista’. I also noticed the “Billing’s Bridge”, which is incorrect since there shouldn’t be an apostrophe.
  10. 8120-55 Bayshore (run 55-06) at the Pretoria Bridge, 5:55 pm 8046-44 Hurdman at Alta Vista/Smyth, 6:00 pm
  11. Have there been any updates on the units that were on order for 2019?
  12. Bus stop flags have begun being switched over in Alta Vista, along new routes 46, 140, 141, 55, and for the 44 Hurdman. I find it funny how a bus stop flag, for example, now has routes 46, 140, 141 on it, but really, despite there being three routes, the service level is the same as before, provided by just one route (112).
  13. While the fact that the writer claims the 12 days of testing has been reset several times may be true, his post just seems a bit too sketchy for me to find it trustworthy. What they say is all very vague, and when they say that the city has agreed to change the contract, frankly, I don’t believe that statement whatsoever. The city wants a working system just as much as anyone else, since it means that there will be lower maintenance costs later on, after the handover. The poor grammar of theirs certainly doesn’t help their credibility either.
