    1st Trip to Calgary

    I'm not a fan of Calgary, never have been. Get out of town, head to the Mountains, Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise, lots of awesome things to see and do there. If you head east, head towards Drumheller and the Badlands.

    Niki Lauda has passed away at age 70 https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48345660
  4. Just thought I'd start a thread for those who have some pics of trains they'd like to share. Nothing fancy, nothing technical (unless you want to of course ), just some nice pics of choo-choo's Kettle Valley Railway ... Deutsche Bahn ICE3 @ Cologne Hauptbahnhof ... More pics of Cologne Hauptbahnhof ... Nederlandse Spoorwegen VIRM Regiorunner @ Amsterdam CS ...

    Gas Prices

    Because the price of gas has not even cracked a $1.80 yet, let alone $2. Simple as that. Lots of photo's like those floating around as a gag, there was one with a Petro Can in Alberta with 212.9. It has not happened yet.

    You do realize that picture is a fake, right?

    Gas Prices

    I've seen this picture floating around a few times. I haven't personally seen more than 172.9, but the picture shows 178.9 yet the caption reads the prices could hit $1.76 by mid week - strange.

    Photography Equipment

    Don't get fixated on the different models. A D3xxx will take just as awesome pictures as a D5xxx. The D5xxx series have a few more little features built in, but those are things you might not even use or need. My recommendation is try to spend less on the body and use the extra money for lenses, that's what makes the difference in image quality. I also agree with the above posts, if it doesn't feel right in your hands, you won't use it, if you don't use it, its a waste of money. If the D5xxx or D3xxx are too small, look at getting maybe a used D7xxx, they're a bit bigger and, for me at least, feel so much more natural in my hands. Another reason to look for a used D7xxx is that the D7xxx series has a built in autofocus into the body where as the D3xxx and D5xxx need to have lenses with autofocus built in in order to use the autofocus.

    Coin and Banknote Collecting

    I usually just buy bars/rounds of silver or fractional ounces of gold, mainly for its stability as an investment. But every once in awhile, I'll buy a rare coin just because it interests me, particularly ancients. My favourite, although not particularly rare, is a NGC graded XF "Widow's Mite" with an exceptional striking. Just the thought that someone used it as currency 2000 years ago is intriguing.

    TTC Application Process

    If nothing is found, then usually by regular mail. If they do find something, then they usually "hand" deliver it 🤣

    Gas Prices

    1.34/L here where I live. Thankfully, I can just hop across the border and fuel up for 0.87/L as the gas station is only 15 min away.

    DRT Employment

    Ok, seriously then, WTF in regards to the last bit with the collective agreement? 🤣 I would be so lost if I had to get a new job these days. Hiring used to be such a simple process. Company needed new drivers, you applied, they hired you, done and done LOL!

    TTC Application Process

    Let's get something clear here. You are not a moderator. If you'd like to tell people how they should post, then I strongly suggest you apply for the position. Also, the context of the post you seem to have such an issue with because it is "one word", is a complete answer to the question therefore more than adequate. May I offer you the suggestion of contacting the mods to have a post removed if it bothers you so much?

    Life After Greyhound

    They held up pretty good, probably better than the Prevosts and Setras. I preferred the older D series tho, as harsh as the ride was on those, they seemed a bit more robust and better suited for the mud and gravel.
