  1. Caught W575 Tuesday on Neilson Road, again I’ve been busy, so I couldn’t post this Tuesday. Also Wow, I can’t believe the Friendlies are just going like that, yes I know they’re like 10-11 years old as of 2020 but I didn’t expect this to happen, or at least most of them (at least 10-15) would be converted into community buses and the rest would be retired and gone without a trace.
  2. I had all of Tuesday to say this but as usual I forgot, but I caught 9136 training at McLevin and Sewells on my way back to school from the Public Library
  3. IDK if this was posted or not, but 1312 has the new “Stand behind the white line” sign as well as the new Line
  4. It’s alright, I’m pretty used to many questions, I’m going to answer them to the best of my ability A. The 35 footers are for Community Bus Service, but something like that yes. Because most of the community bus routes except for the 301 and 307 that are serviced by the New Flyer XDE40s are mostly on side streets. B. Most are third rail, except for the Sand Line which coexists with LincTrans Commuter, what I mean LincTrans Commuter operates the Sand Line, but is management by LincTrans Metro so it’s a DMU operating the route. The gauge since the body of the heavier rail vehicles are similar to the 7000 Series of WMATA, it’s the same gauge of 4 feet and 8 1/4 inches. C. It’s the newest, I’m still working on it, because I forgot to implement the 800 series Express Services (similar to the TTC’s 900 series), but I do intend to post sometime towards the end of the month.

  7. Probably due to some kind of issue with some of the Novas, or a shortage of buses again. I’m leaving it at that because like you I don’t have a clue (Just because I live in the East End doesn’t mean I know exactly what’s going on)
  8. So that explains why I saw an SRT heading east on the 401 last week.
  9. He probably did, guessing by the fleet examples, most of these are out of Malvern, so he may have meant 1333. Or 1320.

What I mean is I’m literally taking time out of walk to anywhere out of the examples to take pictures for here and my Instagram @gtatransit_photography, so the likes will at least thank me. Yes I know it’s all Nova because that’s what Malvern is becoming.
  11. I forgot to put this here Wednesday (Grade 9 is busy, you can’t blame me), but at around 2:10PM on Wednesday, I saw an RT loaded on a truck heading eastbound on the 401 just after Leslie Street. Because of traffic due to a 2 car and truck collision, I didn’t get to see where exactly it went.
  12. Malvern’s Only Fanner/ My new sightings organization.

    Happy February Everyone, yes I’m still 3rd youngest transit enthusiast, but don’t take my word for it. I’m going to make like these status blogs/reports every month. Now I’ve been getting into the hobby of transit fanning for about 3-4 months now in my own neighbourhood (that people think is ghetto) of Malvern, saying as I’m pretty much the only person fanning in that area in general while still finding time for school (It’s going well, Semester 2 just started yesterday, thanks for asking) and my friends. Now I’m not saying Malvern is my territory because I’d be a foamer to do so, the load just grows, lemme put it at that. Anyways, onto my next topic, moreover I’ve been mainly on the Today’s Sightings page posting my sightings for the full week so I’m not here everyday posting about 5-10 buses per day. I usually use my Notes app and then copy and paste the sightings from there to here. But then it got a little too confusing all jumbled up, so I made a new format, kinda like the format of my Transit posts on my Instagram (which I gotta post something to compensate for the 2 days my wifi has been out). I’m allowing myself to get out more, maybe fan a bit where I can, but not always I could because of Grade 9 and how hard my Semester 2 classes are. Anyway, I have a ton of homework due tomorrow and about 12 hours to do it, so Imma show y’all an example of the new format, and maybe a little pic I took last Friday.

  13. LincTrans Updates As of 2/1/2020 - LincTrans Commuter opens its new Tolodo New Street station acting as a terminus for its new Militon-West Lincoln line. - The Airport Line corridor was fully electric, the Nippon Sharyo diesel electric DEMU trains still operate the Airport Line as the the new EMUs have not been delivered yet. - The 185 Yorkmeadow East bus now stop at Thatch Street and Bellvue Drive. The eastbound 185 used to stop at Bellvue Drive then Allendale Parkway North, while the westbound 185 skips Thatch Street and stops at Golf Green Trail. The stop change resulted after an accessibility complaint after a person in a wheelchair skidded down the downgrade between Sammett Drive and Golf Green Trail. - New the new route 195 Havenview bus debuts today (2/1/2020). The bus will serve Havenview Road and part of Malvern Falls Parkway. The stops calls as follows North Charleston Subway Station, Havenview Road - 1455 Havenview Road - Brickyard Trail - Snow Hill Drive - Optare Road - Grenada Street - Hillsview Drive - Daylight Street, Valleyway Road (Havenview Red Line Station) - Golf Club Drive - 3303 Havenview Road - 4529 Havenview Road - Industrial Street - Morningstar Road - Hollyhill Drive - Highway 601 - Bellvue Drive - Yorkmeadow Road - Golf Green Trail - Malvern Falls Parkway - Gregory Dredrue Terrace - Neilson Street - Avenue K (Malvern Falls Brown Line Station). Southbound consists of the same stops, but the numbered stops are the even number behind (e.g: 3303 Havenview Road southbound is 3302 Havenview Road). Also the major streets are indicated in bold.

  15. I guess the operator was caught speeding, that or bus broke down.
