  1. In Bratislava, there was a stop called Vlčie hrdlo-zastávka (zastávka meaning "stop"). The stop was a request stop, so the interior announcements would go something like this: "Nasleduje zastávka, Vlčie hrdlo-zastávka. Zastávka je na znamenie" Roughly translated, it means: next stop, Vlčie hrdlo-stop. This is a request stop. Unfortunately, at the start of 2015 it was renamed to Refinery Gallery and this curiously redundant announcement fell out of use.
  2. I see, thanks!
  3. I'm a little confused on how to send money using Paypal. How is the payment linked with the purchase of charter tickets (how will Rob know which charter the payment is for)?
  4. If Newman had any, then yeah, they would. As it is, due to the nature of the track geometry, all trams have tapered off ends.
  5. No, he meant parts that the OGs and the NGs have in common such as battery pack housing.
  6. Excuse me for being dense, but why would a section insulator damage a pantograph?
  7. 7467 is back, I don't suppose it has received the new colours.
  8. Which part of the article says this was a TTC decision? Literally the first sentence indicates that it was a budget committee that is responsible for this result, not the TTC.
  9. A sample of different formatting you'd find on a destination sign in Newman. Large (modern bus/trolley): Narrow (trams with tapered off front ends): Miniature (GM New Look, fits into the former rollsign cavity)
  10. On January 16, I did a news quiz in one of my classes. One of the questions was "Who won the Raptors-Knicks basketball game? What was the score?" I don't care about sports at all, so, without any facts to go by, I guessed that it was the Raptors, and that they won 116-101, and I got it right. A completely unfounded guess; I could have just as easily guessed 127-109 or some nonsense like that. I am absolutely stunned. No wonder I never win the lottery, my odds are used up on silly things like that!
  11. Why are they still painting them in the old colours? I understand that previously, the new livery hadn't been officially approved yet, but now that both buses sporting the new livery have been in passenger service it seems counter intuitive.
  12. By "delivery scheme", do you mean the original livery?
  13. What would be the point of removing the Presto reader? As far as I know the island buses don't use their destination signs either, but they still keep them.
  14. Sorry, I was not familiar with that abbreviation, thanks for the info.
  15. Anyone know the deal with 7706? It hasn't been out in over 5 months, and its last GPS location report is in the field at Mount Dennis.
