    You shouldn't drink those at all. Two cans is all it takes to risk having a heart attack.

    Not as mad as she gets when she sees you using other search engines.

    Transit Toronto turns 20 this year I think. Ah the good old days when I used to troll the message board and piss off the mods. I've long since refined my technique.

    Toronto man charged in connection to Royal York subway station vandalism http://www.680news.com/2018/02/03/toronto-man-charged-connection-royal-york-subway-station-vandalism/ I've heard of all kinds of mid-life crises. This takes the cake. Or demon possession. They've been planning that line since the 60s. By the time it gets built, riding subways will be a for small, retro nostalgia niche. The rest of us will teleport.

    Definitely the fishbowls. They are a 1959 design after all. Likewise the E/D-700s, CCFs, etc. No offence, but the above bus looks hideous.

    I hope not. Maroon and cream looks like crap on modern vehicles (I include that Orion I).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chopper_(electronics) " A chopper is a device that converts fixed DC input to a variable DC output voltage directly. " It basically makes the acceleration smoother than the older camshaft control cars which did the same job mechanically (I think). The buzzing sound you hear on the H5 is the chopper. The demo for the chopper control cars was the former H3 class (H2s number 5500-5505). Those six cars were converted from H2 to H3 by installing Hitachi choppers. Apparently they made the same noise as the H5 but it stayed on as long as the train was moving. The cars were converted back to H2 in 1984. You can see the H3's in the TV movie "she cried murder (1973)" which was filmed in Toronto with LOTS of subway shots (Lots of shots of the old Osgoode station, and the final chase scene was filmed in Greenwood yard). Find it on Youtube, you get to see Telly Savales (kojak) get electrocuted

    Just a FYI, the H5's have the same Motor and Chopper (Garrett) as the L1's and L2's. The H6's have the same motor and chopper (Brush traction) as the L3's
