  1. Since this move, I've noticed that the NW is now entirely populated by either older (7601-81xx) series buses - without AC - or the new CNG buses - that have bad AC. Gonna be a sweaty summer!
  2. Word is there will be one at a library at least. Took a nice sweaty ride home yesterday on IIRC 2056, they will indeed be around awhile.
  3. Time for a second consist to hit the tracks!
  4. Ahhh cool. I went the previous Friday and am not an habitual Stampede-goer so didn't know that was a thing.
  5. Wait, so it was used just last week, but only for 3-car trains? Were 3-car trains the only ones running at the time? Or did 4-car trains get diverted to the main platform? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS 🥵
  6. Well color me dumbfounded. I was sure the answer was going to be something like "2002".
  7. The news about a potential Saddledome replacement and the impending demolition and rebuild of Victoria Park station has me wondering when the last time the East platform of Victoria Park saw use?
  8. Rode it home the other day! I'm still struck by how smooth the suspension is.
  9. These buses seem to have taken over the NW! I think I've been on one every day this week, and I see them everywhere - on the 138, 299, 76, 113, etc. Not just the new fleet but 8201-8204 as well. Is this just because their garage is in the North? Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT complaining - love new stuff and breathing cleaner air is awesome. I'm just surprised at their sudden upsurge in the NW in particular.
  10. 8202 just drove by me on the 138 at 11PM. Big bus out so late, though I'm always pleased to see CNG units in my neighborhood.
  11. Until the train comes to a stop for 7 minutes because someone misbehaved or OD'd at City Hall for the 8th time that day. Or you go through a tunnel. Or it... y'know... breaks down.
  12. Would be rather shocking to watch 80% of a city commute out and back every day. Maybe by 2150 when the coasts have flooded and AB's population is ~300 million 🤣
  13. I ride the 138 daily and there is a reliable mix of every kind of bus on the route, with fleet numbers from 7600 to 8380 every day.
