  1. I presume it was the Zurich article which was being referenced. Which is not fully accurate. Even though it took eons to get the order off the ground, the cars should've still started delivery in late 2018 - if the article is correct:
  2. Heaven forbid people should cite where they get their information from.
  3. Would anyone happen to know what about the wheelchair lift installation on the ex-Utah GMs required that the little window just past the front doors filled in? Some equipment stored back there?
  4. Thanks for your feedback. I haven't done anything yet as my family has urged me to carefully think over what actions I can take to deal with this situation. I had no idea a Canadian could issue a DMCA takedown notice.
  5. I can try contacting the seller and requesting that they stop, and if that doesn't work out, then I could maybe turn to Amazon customer service and see if there's anything they can do, but otherwise I am doubtful that there's anything I can do. I suppose that will teach me to not watermark the stuff I put out on the internet. With over 10,000 photos in my collection it might be easier to just discontinue the public-facing side of my Flickr account rather than trying to figure out how batch watermark so many photos.
  6. OK I am officially fucking PISSED. Imagine my shock to open Amazon today and find that someone stole a photo of CLRV 4041 that I shot at Queen's Quay and Lower Spadina on the evening of June 7, 2016, and is making a pretty penny selling a t-shirt of it!! Holy crap!! Officially licensed my ass. I'm immediately looking in on what can be done about this. The NERVE of some people in this community!
  7. 4147 left for scrap today, per a post on Facebook.
  8. Campaign Cartographer 3+. It's regular use is to make fantasy-style maps (think Lord of the Rings and whatnot) for books or role-playing games. But it does have a small selection of add-on styles that allow you to do maps in styles such as a metro map, modern road maps, and so on.
  9. 4021 departed yesterday (i.e. January 15, 2020).
  10. +40 easily. Pictures or videos of transit?
  11. Beef for hamburgers, pork for hotdogs. Winter or summer?
  12. Had a chance to try out the Proterra this evening. Much has been said about its unattractive exterior design, but in all honesty I find myself more vexed by the interior. The choice of nearly all perimeter seating in the LF section, as compared to the more intrusive 2+1 seating, is a plus, but the lack of a dedicated standee area, though nothing new, is sorely felt, and the bars in the rear door area are ridiculous. Great work, let's cut back on the already limited amount of standee room even more. The rear high floor area is really crappily arranged. Is there a design consideration that prevents all these low floor buses from having the rear set up like the high floor buses of old (all perimeter seating shunted up against the wall)? Those were so much better. Seems the wheel wells on all these LF buses jut out way more. And what the hell is this? I really wish they'd just cut the seat seen to the left hand of this photo, and just made this into a proper standee area that an adult could fit in. Christ, I miss the Orion Vs.
  13. That's fair enough, though I suppose their inability to work with the upgraded signal system would be a case of them not being "able to deliver the service required of them". I was more speaking on the general notion of no one wanting to see the T1s operate until the mid 2030s... they may be a bit long in the tooth, but there's very little in the way of the passenger experience that they lack that couldn't be remedied with some interior upgrades (like the tactile strips on the floor).
