  1. 3709. It was t-boned during training back in the summer.
  2. It's orange in person. Notice the lack of saturation on the red of the LFS in the background and the fact that it's a cloudy day.
  3. Keep in mind the old system, red alarms would only be broadcast on the current channel the user was on, unlike on TETRA where no matter what talkgroup your on, it would simulcast onto the master dispatch console, which is Surface 1.
  4. Emergency button is on top of the handheld between channel selector and antenna, and on the mitre below the PTT. Pretty much standard positioning across the radio manufacturers and working as designed with little to no resistance.
  5. Haven't updated this thread in a long while due to time restrictions. Latest photo updates: 513 photos shot between Oct 2014-Oct 2015 - https://www.flickr.com/photos/gviloria/sets/72157657346308043 86 photos shot from Nov 2015-Jan 2016 - https://www.flickr.com/photos/gviloria/sets/72157663498584529 3 of my latest videos: TTC Special - TTC Peter Witt, PCC, CLRV, ALRV, LFLRV streetcars en route to Beaches Easter Parade - TTC - Toronto Transit Commission Yonge University Spadina Subway action 2011 - Compilation Video #3 - TTC Special - 1987-89 UDTC ALRV 4208 reversing along Queen St East - Enjoy!
  6. The property by the Don is only for M&P warehouse needs. They still have to accommodate the collector/subway/stations division.
  7. They loop between Wolseley Loop and McCaul Loop, with 277 Queen being the pickup point. 4213 is currently the only car as 4249 is being unwrapped as we speak. ttc4213_snkrsxpress_DSC03248 by G.Viloria Photography | TTC1700s Transport Media, on Flickr
  8. Considering making a body upgrade to a 5D Mk3. My 7D has been more than adequate for transit but I've outgrown it for my needs outside transit. Family Photo 2015 by G.Viloria Photography | TTC1700s Transport Media, on Flickr
  9. My diagram is dated Sept/10 and it shows only sel 233 in place.

  11. There were signs, but they lasted a good hour before people ripped them down. Same for the stops on Bathurst.
  12. If they've lasted this long sitting stagnant inside Davenport, which isnt exactly ideal conditions, they'd probably last till then.
  13. A new "family photo". Mostly unchanged for the past few years. L to R Canon 16-35 2.8L, Canon 50mm 1.8 STM, Canon 24-70 2.8L, Sony RX100M2, Sigma 70-200 2.8, Canon 7D w/ BG-E7 Grip. Next upgrade is probably going to be Full Frame, either 6D or 5DM3 and to the Canon 70-200 2.8L IS USM II.
  14. The plan for the Self Serve Reload machines are a minimum of 3 for areas with booths, 1 for automatic entrances and 2 by the surface vehicle platform areas. The fare media vending machines should be coming soon as well with minimum 2 by booths and 1 by automatic entrances. Plan is it will accept debit/credit/bills/to both buy and reload cards.
  15. Dropped my 7D+24-70 fumbling with trying to take it out of my camera bag. Lens hit first and mount broke off the lens and some cosmetic damage on the body. Only a $700 repair so not that big of a deal.
  16. A couple of CIT Laurentides LFS and Pacific Western D40LFs are assigned to do MCPC to OPW/PAP via Lakeshore Blvd. I believe I'm one of the only forum members with access to MCPC so I'll try and get numbers and such.
  17. Uhh... the 7 that are in service already, 4400, 4403-4408.
  18. So far 2 of the 3 types of "TVM" are out: Fare & Transfer Machine for LFLRV On-board and Off-board which print out single ride fares. IMG_0953 by TTC1700s Transport Media, on Flickr Self-Serve Reload Machine for Presto Reload IMG_0714 by TTC1700s Transport Media, on Flickr The 3rd machine will be the same form factor but will be a Fare Media Vending machine which will dispense the RFID cards and will also have the function of reloading and vending Presto cards
  19. For those wondering how Presto is gonna work for cash fares, Disposable RFID cards are going to be used. At Subway stations, a variation of vending machine thats being used on the new streetcars and add value machines will be used to pay your fare. Coins, bills, debit/credit chip/nfc. You choose what you want (single ride, up to 5 or 10 "rides", day pass ) and it will dispense a rfid card with whatever you bought typed onto it. The machines can also be used to reload your presto. On legacy streetcars and buses, the same RFID cards will be used with the driver issuing and activating it. Presto will have multiple functions at the TTC including paying for parking and having a "monthly parking pass", including gate control at those locations. All the info can be found here: Google "TTC Presto Master Agreement"
  20. Obviously streetcars cause it's a streetcar thread.
