    Streetcar News

    My instinct is to go with the APM shuttle (technology TBD) and relocate the streetcar track to the southern lanes, eliminating the swerve to the portal which has caused so much safety problems. I imagine the Westin would not like this as it would interfere with arriving taxis. The TTC has had issues down the years with water infiltration and it may be that a lower height vehicle and raising the guideway would allow better drainage beneath. The tricky part would be how to access for maintenance given the car park south of QQ Station likely impedes a continuation southwards - maybe this is where the ACC/Bremner space comes in?

    Apart from railfans, does this particular error matter to anyone?

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Not encouraging given what today's weather has done to the CLRV fleet - are we retiring one cold-sensitive vehicle and introducing different ones? https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2019/01/electric-bus-battery-recharge-new-flyer-byd-proterra-beb/577954/

    Transsee currently has 4519 in the service bay so either that wasn't the plan or the plan had to change? 4520 and 4521 also pinging from the service bays.

    Thunder Bay may get the cars in lieu of liquidated damages, assuming the Commission doesn't chicken out and take cash. That's maybe another... 8-10?

    I see 4518 is on Richmond. Is there active track/wire there now? For some reason I thought Richmond and Adelaide tracks were OOS (also: 4519 on a 501 signed in run)

    BYD using carbon steel frames according to CEO Report for December. That should be... interesting.
