  1. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    They've never had a standard for elevator/escalator models up to even the latest things placed in, so I can imagine the pain and heads exploding. They haven't been able to deal with the existing headache of models and parts inventories, whatever has been put in Metrotown will probably just make things worse.

    It's deleted for me. "The file you were looking for could not be found"

    I want to see this picture now. Back in December 2016 when it first launched I left feedback that the diagram didn't include Waterfront as a connection point, it should go from Cambie/Hastings to Waterfront, then Burrard. Plus add signage in the Canada Line station that you can catch the 95 out the South exit. Their response was "Thank you for your suggestions about the new SkyTrain, B-Line and SeaBus Network diagram. We see your point, and will add this to our list of design considerations for the next time we update this diagram." I didn't expect anything to actually come of it, so curious how it turned out.

    The past few days I've noticed Novas mixed in with the trolleys on 4/7/9/10/16. Service expansion or something else? Like right now at 10pm the 9 is 25% Nova which seems weird, especially for off-peak.
  5. I'm curious if the added frequency actually accomplishes anything. The 6 Downtown is unreliable as hell in the mornings even at current frequency, since the only layover is at Cambie at Dunsmuir. From the time it starts there as a 5 Robson and switches to 6 Downtown, they're already bunched up where you'll miss 3 all behind each other and then on a bad morning 12-19 minutes until the next batch shows up. edit: the 6 runs at 9km/h on average, so increasing the frequency to 5m means a bus every 3-4 blocks. In a perfect world that would mean one bus at every traffic light, but I'm expecting to see 6 buses drive by in a group every 10 minutes after the change.

    I'm not saying to post it solely on the Wiki, my point is this entire page has been nothing but going back and forth about what is currently there. "Edit logs says it has X." "Edit summary says it has Y." As @translink has pointed to, post what is new and more importantly verifiable. When someone can confirm what it has, post away. Don't resort to "The Wiki says it has X" because the Wiki is frequently out-of-date.

    You're all tagged as CPTDB Wiki Editor, so figure it out among yourselves. Maybe on the Wiki Talk page

    I'll admit I bought the SkyTrain. The shipping costs seemed weird but okay sure whatever. I was expecting it to come from New Westminster or close. Then I got the parcel tracking number. edit: Shipping is free on the $90 shower curtain though, lmao. It's also weird as hell that a Buzzer Blog article, which normally gets like 0-3 comments has 96 as now now.

    The items ship from Mississauga. That explains the outrageous shipping costs. Add $30 to ship that SkyTrain model.

    imo "%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/#####################/@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@/&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&" is the best one. Some driver would always do it on layover back when I lived near Joyce station. The bus is screaming out to whoever is listening
  11. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    They all started showing up at VTC when the 9 got dieselized for the Commercial-Broadway construction. They'll probably be gone at the end of the month.
  12. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Yeah I take the 9 from Commercial-Broadway Eastbound and there was nothing going on today.

    Xcelsiors are available with with BAE hybrid, so I'd think delivery times as well.

    A neat art print of Vancouver transit.
