  1. I'd say locals first, maybe with added tourist influx during peak periods (July-August). To the contrary of the Canadian, the fares and the schedule made the train competitive with the buses on medium- and long-distance, but with added comfort and amenities : Montréal to Gaspé by train, 2011 : ≥125 $ by bus, 2021 : 135 $ Montréal to Rimouski by train, 2019 : ≥75 $ by bus, 2021 : 95 $ As for the schedule, the train would depart Gaspé in the afternoon and arrive in Montréal mid-morning the next day, while three bus w
  2. Permis 2594-A was awarded to Metropolitain Sud, located at 118 boulevard Industriel (now 205 Rue du Parc-Industriel). Location is now ironically occupied by car dealers. The last remnants were demolished between 2009 and 2011.
  3. GASH was completed in 1975; GALO in 1989. I don't know where was Métropolitain Sud garage.
  4. To the contrary of Red Deer sub and SVI, Chemin de fer de la Gaspésie (property of the government, operated by the regional municipalities) is undergoing a overhaul of critical infrastructures : 250 M$ were allocated to fully reopen the railroad from Matapédia to Gaspé : over 135 M$ were invested to refurbish the rail up to Port-Daniel―Gascons (2017-2022, with totally new bridges in Caplan and on the Port-Daniel sand bar to be erected this year). The rest is budgeted for Chandler subdivision (2021-2025). The Amiral tourist train is expected to return to Gaspé in 2024 and freight in 2025. Aside

  6. Orléans Express is suspending all its departures except for 3 return trips between Québec and Montréal, and 1 between Québec and Rimouski. https://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/regional/2021-01-27/trajets-d-orleans-express-suspendus/nos-regions-sont-encore-prises-en-otages.php
  8. Leaked info : North and eastward extension (gare Centrale―Marie-Victorin and Gare Centrale―Pointe-aux-Trembles) to be announced tomorrow. 2 new routes : Gare Centrale to Montréal-Nord via René-Lévesque (aerial), Notre-Dame, Dickson, hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (underground), Lacordaire Gare Centrale to Pointe-aux-Termbles via René-Lévesque, Notre-Dame, Dickson, then Sherbrooke (unclear if former Longue-Pointe subdivision/exo ROW is part of the project). Stay tuned.
  9. I don't think you have the right topic, pal. There has been no railroad in Newfoundland for quite a long time before the pandemic.
  10. Found them! Here are the preliminary scenarios, presented to the BAPE : https://archives.bape.gouv.qc.ca/sections/mandats/Reseau_electrique_métropolitain/documents/DA91.pdf There is no coupling at Bois-Francs as I thought I remembered, but peak line capacity scenario has provision for 1m 30s frequency on system core, with short runs at Roxboro and Centrale. Why? What is the difference? Azur cars have full boa conception because of capacity and venting issues with previous models. REM cars will be equipped with A/C, and trains will have 55-70% of an Azur's capacity (depending on me
  11. Platforms will be the length of 4 cars. The original scenario had provisions for running 2-car trains north of Centrale between 9 AM and 3 PM, as well as some (un)coupling at Bois-Francs, hence the short trains. It might still be the case, though I can't find any document to corroborate that. Note that the capacity of a REM car (150-200 pax) is significantly superior to an Azur car (122 pax).
  12. Looking closely, I don't see overhead power in the garage neither. No worries : they must have tractors for hauling trains around.
  13. Transit returning to Le Haut-Saint-Laurent in 2021 : new routes will serve Godmanchester, Howick, Huntingdon, Ormstown, Sainte-Barbe, Très-Saint-Sacrement, Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague, Saint-Stanislas-de-Kostka and Sainte-Martine, with service to Mercier (potential exo connection) and Salaberry-de-Valleyfield (potential Société de transport de Salaberry-de-Valleyfield connection and cégep service). Areas unserved by the new routes will have dial-up services to connect with fixed route. https://www.journalsaint-francois.ca/un-nouveau-service-de-transport-verra-le-jour-dans-le-haut-saint-lauren
  14. 4 Alstom Metropolis cars were delivered to Brossard Maintenance Centre in the last few days. After inspection and coupling tests, they should hit the tracks. More info : https://rem.info/fr/actualites/arrivee-premieres-voitures
