    It sounds like transformation is a bit of an exaggeration based on the full text of the press release.

    On one hand, I'm disappointed that they didn't take this as an opportunity to restore service to Calgary. On the other, the Rocky Mountaineer is going to raise hell over VIA running a Rockies only section of the Canadian.

    All supporters of the Ford bros. I've talked to have said the same thing: they disapprove of the tax but blame the feds and province for it since they didn't give the city more money.

    Why keep it a secret? He and his brother had no problem creating a subway tax for the SSE and he didn't lose any supporters over it.

    Don't worry. Doug Ford plans to fix that by building the Scarborough Expressway and pass laws ensuring that less than fair market value will be paid on all expropriated land.

    No cars were cut out. Although, they did swap out one of the locomotives. However, what I was getting at is that the yard tracks are intended for up to 12 car GO trains with the Canadian consist being 20. So did they split the consist for servicing or just use the northern most yard track?

    Yeah, I just found out about that. (Although how they did it has me curious if anyone took any pictures.)

    The Canadian apparently took the scenic route to get to Union for its overnight departure. It came in from the east which means it must have taken the Weston, York and Bala subs. Edit: After taking the Campa.

    It would be an expensive short term one if it were.

    At least we hope not. The last thing we need now is to find another design flaw with them. And I guess I was mistaken because I thought the pole was deployed.

    TTC in the news

    It would be better if they "roughed up" the cement for the entire ROW to either cause the same sound as the rumble strips on the 400 series highways or to make it a bumpy ride.

    Is (was?) it still there?. I might have missed damage to the overhead which is why the diversion hasn't ended. It's also possible that the TTC has also notices a pattern of the pans going up when they shouldn't be and is giving 4447 a thorough investigation before they move it.

    Not that I could tell. However, they may have repaired it by the time I was walking by. I can't help but wonder if this is karma catching up with the TTC over their decision to save a buck by slowing down the pan upgrades to the overhead.

    Yep. The interesting thing is that the pole was also up. (They had lowered it by the time I took this photo)
