  1. I just saw that photo. 🀣 🀣 🀣 I don't remember him doing that at all. 🀣 I felt really bad for some of the operators but they took it in stride. And yeah, people like that give all transit fans a bad name or worse, an asterisk whenever legal discussions concerning the hobby come up. It seems the media at least found some decent people to interview for the most part.
  2. I am willing to guess that he was the reason CBC News couldn't air their coverage aboard 4068 although I may be wrong. I didn't see it on their website. πŸ™„
  3. Totally agreed. And let's face it, the ruining of photos was the least of what could have happened. He could have gotten killed or seriously injured and guess who would take the blame. The same organization who made this event possible. Now I definitely understand and sympathize why they did the contest. There was another whackjob on board the same car that made the operator wait while he decided to walk around the closed side in the middle of traffic for photos. He could have also been easily hit by a car. He was also shouting random stuff. I'll just call him "Alladin" because of the way he looked. Some of you may know who I'm talking about. I've seen the same guy before on the subway acting dodgy. The CLRV retirement and the unbelievable generosity (as well as patience) the TTC displayed with this event was enough to bring me out of retirement but it was also simultaneously a reminder why I love fanning alone. The day before Sunday I just sat around the Ex in the nice weather and just watched streetcars with my lunch. No cameras, no nothing. In the end, your eyes and your memory are the best camera.
  4. At least now they have a few more candidates for historic vehicles they can throw on the 509 if they ever decide to do that again.
  5. I was hoping that one would stay in the city like at Wychwood but the more the merrier. The CLRVs are well preserved,
  6. Nice video. Not as bad as the foamers weaving in and out of traffic for shots including one that ran alongside 4068 from Greenwood to the yard filming. Now I see why the TTC decided to have that contest.
  7. 4068 was packed on the last run too. It didn't help there was a reporter and huge TV camera on board as well. πŸ˜‚ Nevertheless, glad I got on the car accidentally. Had no idea until I boarded that it was the last one.
  8. 4001 has arrived. That's all folks. 😊🍾πŸ₯‚πŸ»
  9. I'm on 4001. Lol. I can't remember the last time I was on a Swiss car. At least a decade.
  10. Omg it's foam city at Russel atm. 🀣 🀣 🀣
  11. This was probably the last Bathurst CLRV I would ever ride.
