    Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

    7843, an AG Bus is on a 98/453/156 block.

    Calgary Transit

    There are three 111 blocks that run during rush hour and the other two went the correct way. I know, very confusing.

    This seems very odd, but on the 111 for the past two days, on the same block, both 8230 (today) and 8242 (yesterday) were not travelling on the planned route and instead went on a different route. I've attatched an image. The black pen is the actual 111 route and the red pen is the route the bus today and yesterday took.

    Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    As member "LRT" mentioned in a previous post, these trains were updated with some components from series 8 and 9s. Not quite sure about how much longer the lifespan of the trains will be extended, I guess we'll have to wait until they're put into revenue service to find out.

    General FY Moments

    Just purchased a Canon 18-135 STM lens to replace my 18-55 IS on my Canon Rebel T2i. The autofocus on my 18-55 is worn out and takes quite a long time to focus. Can’t wait to try my new toy out tomorrow!

    Speaking of 8114 but also an unusual sighting, it is seen on the 156 this morning.

    Reactions to transit hobby in school

    I have only told good friends of mine about my bus hobby, who I know would not spread rumors or hate me for it. I have not told anyone else primarily because of bullying.
