  1. I’ve seen worse. Including a fight on the GO Train back in October
  2. Yes, however CN owns the track beyond Kitchener although it seems like that they'll sell it to MX at some point
  3. No, it goes back the way it came along the Guelph Sub. The reasoning why it's not a service is up to MX.
  4. CP uses the Galt Sub. CN only has one train or so a day along the Guelph Sub past Kitchener with most CN Trains using the Dundas Sub instead
  5. My mom was a regular 501 user along with Lines 2&3 back in the day and she said that the driver would often leave everyone on the streetcar to go get coffee or use the bathroom or just short turn at Kingston Road/Queen or Woodbine.
  6. Are any of them operating in Whitby? Would be nice to see some new busses on the 3XX routes for once.
  7. In all honesty, I find this comical. Almost all DRT busses that go from either DC campus go to Whitby GO Station, with the remaining going to either McCowan RT Station, Oshawa Centre or Lakeview Park. The only bus that goes from Oshawa GO to either DC campus is the 56 GO Bus. There is no direct DRT bus to either DC Campus from Oshawa GO. There is a DC campus in Whitby that isn't overly far away from Oshawa GO but because of the 401, it's a 45min walk and there are no sidewalks.
  8. I think I saw one last week at the back of Mount Dennis Garage by the Weston Sub along with other busses that looked to be retired as well.
  9. GRT as well to an extent also
  10. My dog is pretty smart actually, knows how to spell
  11. As well, iirc before Covid, they would cancel trains due to “staff shortages” on Friday’s, usually on a long weekend in the summer because the staff would call in “sick”
  12. Per Via’s Instagram, the Chargers will enter service Q4 2022 https://www.instagram.com/p/ChXRcFmrDdv/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=
  13. This would more or less include anyone who’s not contracted out to Alstom to operate the trains
  14. It’s called GO Logic, they have the knowledge to run a good transit system, they just don’t know how to use it
  15. I remember with the CLRV’s for the longest time one was tracking in the middle of Lake Ontario
  16. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/woman-lit-on-fire-kipling-station-dead-1.6511371 CBC now reporting that she has died
  17. https://www.cp24.com/news/an-incredibly-ill-advised-stunt-ttc-probing-video-showing-two-males-train-surfing-in-scarborough-1.5973275 looks like some idiots wanted to play Subway Surfers in real life on Canada day on Line 3
  18. It seems like they still might be, 4/6 cars on 59 last Saturday were refurbished. Although 1 of the cars had the old red seats. I couldn’t tell if the other one had old seats as well
  19. I heard 1/5 of LRC’s are out of service and unlikely to return because of their condition and Via has had to canabalize a few to keep the rest of the fleet running. There have been equipment swaps recently, on Saturday I was on Via 59 and the scheduled LRC’s were swapped for HEP’s. I wonder if this will see the return of Renaissance equipment west of Ottawa.
  20. 6113 is in a wrap for Pride
  21. Does anyone know of a recent speed increase on the Kingston Sub between Guildwood and the Durham/Toronto border? I was on it today and it seems faster along there than it did in the past.
  22. This looks like it is on the Galt Sub crossing of the Humber River
  23. Indigo has it as well, I got mine from there today, it’s really good
  24. Scratch it again 7122 was on 915 earlier
