  1. When I was in high school I would routinely tell people I was from Slovakia only for them to insist that I was from Russia or Ukraine, or that there was no difference between the three. This sadly rings true!
  2. Came back home from vacation only to find that the microSD card that was in my dash cam looks as though it has died, leaving me without hours and hours of video. For Christ's sake, I am SO fed up with posting in this thread.
  3. 4002 appears to have tracked this morning, last seen in the lake around 12 minutes ago.
  4. Why? What would this achieve? We've only got two of the things and no one has seriously considered running them in revenue service. They're heritage vehicles. Two ran in mid May for a few days, 4207 and 4221.
  5. TTC 9074 spotted westbound on the 401 at Victoria Park just now
  6. 4010 is at Hillcrest. 4049, 4069, 4192, and 4195 are at Roncesvalles. 4004 hasn't run since June 25. 4114 was last seen on June 28.
  7. Tonight, 2544 was the final ever 20 bus that pulled into Milton station. It was a good service 😔
  8. Thanks for sharing that article. It's interesting to note that even after having 10 years to work them out they were so dissatisfied with how the CLRVs ended up turning out. Did they ever end up getting better?
  9. What sort of service was this? Unless this was some kind of historical bus rally out in the sticks it seems unlikely that you'd be very far from the nearest transit service. That being said, I'm not familiar with Medicine Hat, and I've been in bigger cities with shitty bus service, so YMMV.
  10. Some choice CLRVs that you will never see again, from over the years: Toronto Transit Commission 4014 - 02 by Andrew P., on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4016 - 01 by Andrew P., on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4027 - 02 by Andrew P., on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4078 - 02 by Andrew P., on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4083 - 02 by Andrew P., on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4172 - 03 by Andrew P., on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4175 - 01 by Andrew P., on Flickr
  11. That someone is legendary transit historian John F. Bromley
  12. To clarify: 4230 is the only one that is presently reporting fresh GPS data. The locations of the other previously mentioned units are cached and don't necessarily correspond to reality.
  13. Wouldn't it make sense then to leave the light cycle as is at College, Dundas, Queen, and King, and implement transit priority phases at all the rest? Surely the car doesn't need to idle at every other traffic light along the route for ages?
  14. 4486 was spotted in King service today. It appears to have some sort of unusual equipment installed just above the driver's cab, and it's missing its pantograph. This is a new development, as it still had its pantograph when it returned to service on April 18, 2019 (the Flickr photo is from that day).
