    Ha. Ha. You're funny. I take GO every weekday and their drivers are most certainly not always on time. Most notably during rush hour, but also, if there's even one person who has an issue with their PRESTO card or elects to pay with cash fare, it throws a real spanner into the works. Expecting 100% schedule adherence from any transit agency is a pie in the sky fantasy that shouldn't be entertained for a second.
  2. I update the list as frequently as I can, but I have a life outside of these forums as well. If you want to take over the running of the main post, by all means, but if there's going to be two lists maintained simultaneously it's a huge waste of my time.
  3. Why are you maintaining a second list? Would you like to take over the sole running of this thread?
  4. TTC in the news

    How the fuck is that ad propaganda? The ad is so confusing and obtuse that I can't imagine coming away from it feeling any other emotion but extreme confusion.
  5. Your Transit Memorabilia

    Today I acquired one of the limited edition Corgi PCC models. According to a card that came in the box this is number 956 of 1000. It's pretty cool, the fleet number is 4676 so it's supposed to be a representation of the A12 class (my personal favorite style of PCC).
  6. At no point in his post did he express certainty that DDs will be ordered; he was rebutting Antartica's point that McNicoll could be able to handle them should they be purchased.
  7. Anyone know if there's going to be an open house at Hillcrest this year?
  8. Anyone create their own transit system?

    It means it's a replacement service, usually for a tram or trolleybus service. For more info on what the X9 specifically was all about, refer to my July update:
  9. What's your favourite Disney Movie?

    If Pixar movies count, Ratatouille. Probably my all time favourite movie overall as well. A genuine masterpiece.

  11. I've been really busy recently but I just got around to updating the first post.
  12. General FML moments

    Earlier this month, I visited the High Tatra mountains in Slovakia. The road between there and where my grandparents (where I'm staying) is probably the most beautiful road on the planet. My dash cam, for reasons unknown to me, started acting up on the drive back; the SD card was allegedly full, and I format it before every journey now to avoid problems. Sadly, we won't be going to the Tatra Mountains again on this trip, so I won't have a video at dusk, the most beautiful time of day on the most beautiful road on the planet.
  13. Whats up with the board

    I'm not at a computer right now to verify, but I'm pretty sure that the number 22 is there, just higlighted to an unreadable extent.
  14. That's because of the colour temperature of the LEDs. I believe some exist that mimick the visual appearance of a conventional fluorescent tube as well.
  15. TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    Why would it surprise you that a historical vehicle is being rebuilt?
