    2018 Novabus LFS CNG Sightings and Deliveries

    Nice! I rode on one of the demonstrators a few weeks back. Seemed just like any other XD40 - maybe slightly quieter? But an 85% emissions reduction is a definite win. Overall that may even be better than an all-electric fleet when you consider the CO2 from generation.

    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    Curious - if those trains still had their pantographs, what would stop them from moving under their own power once plunked down on the Edmonton tracks?

    All the history and service these old warriors have given to the city over their lifetime is a little mind-blowing to think about. I hope the last one goes with some sort of ceremony, at the very least.

    General Route Discussion and History

    It seems like the 138 now merges with the 158 and 169 later at night departing from Crowfoot and Tuscany stations. Once in a while I come home from work much later than usual and this caused me some confusion last week. It's fine to do this but I monitor all Transit info and this forum and heard nothing about this until I figured it out myself.

    Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    There was a biohazard on the front car of a 4-car S200 consist going to Crowfoot around 10PM last night too, then someone causing an altercation in Crowfoot station as well. Bad night for the train or same guys maybe?

    I might start walking to 4 St W.

    Because I *never* need to wait two trains to be able to board NB at 7th St W as it is. 😄

    CTrain Station Renovations

    That doesn't seem like a good business model for an escalator model that's only ~15 years old, considering their usual service life.

    They all need to go through the refurb process before they're compatible with the 8s though don't they? The one 2205 is perpetually stuck at the end of?

    Going to start making mental notes of the number every time I get on a U2 now, each may be the last time!

    CTrain Station Renovations

    They've had 4/6 doors into Crowfoot and all the main exits to the platform closed for what feels like weeks now while they do some drawn-out thing with the floor grates, this looks similar. Is that actually telling people to cross Crowchild trail to enter Brentwood though?

    Trains and buses with mustaches

    The U2s should have greying mustaches.

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    Judging by how absolutely packed the trains were ferrying people to the new Central Library yesterday, it's not surprising they broke out a 4-car consist or two

    Pretty sure 2456 was in house during the OBMF tour. Was nice to have one of each gen lined up!
