  1. Never underestimate the TTC's desire to favour short term cost savings over rational thought. Since the streetcar deliveries are behind schedule, guess what projects got pushed back?
  2. Isn't that the exact same arrangement that the legacy network Flexitys have?
  3. I really want to know who thought that putting the large VIA logos at the front end of the sides was a good idea. They really should have used the design they are using on Glenfraser as the start point for 916 rather than the LRC car.
  4. I figured that might have been the case.
  5. Amusingly, someone on eBay was recently selling slides of the VIA F59PHI test train. Edit: Found it.
  6. " The committee agreed to spend $1.3 million on the controversial drug testing plan, and $98,000 to employ additional transit enforcement officers. " Remind me again how big of a problem fare evasion is.
  7. When a politician considers over a billion dollars minuscule...
  8. Honestly, I think the issue of the electronics is overblown with maintaining them in a museum. Simply put, you should be able to salvage spares relatively inexpensively since they have no value beyond scrap due to their custom nature.
  9. With the number that are being rebuilt, I'd be surprised if the TTC and the HCRR are the only two museums that end up with CLRV's and ALRV's.
  10. By initially expecting the TTC to modify the curves on the legacy network for the Flexitys rather than modifying the Flexity design for the curves on the legacy network. Also, Siemens pulled out rather than they failed to qualify.
  11. You apparently forgot how they acted when it came to the curves on the legacy network when they were bidding on the contract.
  12. Ever stop to count the number of cars that ignore no left/right turn signs at intersections? You would have better results with a legal waver regarding damages and armour plating on the front of the crosstown cars.
  13. Why? There are times when I wish the subway network had the ability to skip stations when no one was getting on or off.
  14. If you are trying to prove that the Flexitys are quieter than the CLRV & ALRV fleets, you keep using the same car for as long as practical. That way, you have a consistent point of comparison if anyone says that any future Flexitys on the 514 are louder.
  15. Or it's just been assigned to the 514. With the 511 being replaced with buses and with the 514 supposed to be an all Flexity route eventually, one would be assigned at some point once the TTC got enough on the property.
