    I rode 29-068 on the 66 yesterday. It broke down while going up la Côte-des-Neiges. Fortunately the driver was able to rapidly pull over and immobilze the vehicle.

    How can one get a TRAM1 for the price of a CAM? I don't see that listed on the site.

    I don't know if this was already reported, but a number of 700-series cab cars and F59PHIs have received new e-bells. They remind me of the O-Train bells because they sound quite similar. 1321 has this new bell.

    Here’s the train car in exo colours.

    Unfortunately I was not in a good spot to get a photo. Didn't even notice the colour (lol). It is on the trainset that does all the off-peak departures (I saw it doing the limited stop reverse-peak run from Vaudreuil to LUL), before it would have turned around to do the 6pm outbound departure from LUL.

    The first 3000 series car was in service today on the VH line. Looks good but I am so used to the white and blue.

    I wish they would have kept the AMT branding for all the trains and just extended that to the buses.

    Encouraging news about the Réseau structurant de transport collectif. However I think it's safe to say this is merely an election promise. No matter who wins the October election, I think we can expect some major changes to the plan.

    I guess that means we will have to get our pictures of the ALP-45DPs while we can. I wonder if NJT would purchase them. Not sure if GO is quite ready for electrification!

    I noticed that VIA has pulled one of two Renaissance trainsets running on the Ocean, and replaced it with a HEP1 set. Apparently the Renaissance cars are having serious technical difficulties, and the stainless steel equipment will be used for an undetermined period of time. It's not clear what exactly the problems with the Ren equipment are.

    I rode a hybrid on the Champlain bridge yesterday on the 45, was not expecting that. We were probably going around 80 as the driver was passing other vehicles. I saw there was also a hybrid on the 90, and saw two LFS artics laying over at TCV.

    Are there any departures of the Ocean that are currently scheduled to operate with HEP equipment?

    It would be nice if they sent the AZUR to the yellow line for the summer festivals.

    Montreal Metro MR-63 Retirement Watch

    I rode the yellow line on the weekend and got a 9-car MR-73 train. I assume this means the MR-63s are now completely removed from the yellow line, and the 9-car trains are in service both during and outside peak hours.
