  1. Assuming they go ahead and build this "Extra set of tracks" from Lachine to St-Anne's, does that mean that the service will be increased from St-Anne to Montreal only, or is there simply no need for the extra track from St-Anne to Vaudreuil?
  2. I was thinking of doing this one day. Your supposed to get a pass or something right?
  3. I wonder if the big guys are still at Lucien L'allier, cause this just came in. ---------------------------- Original Message ---------------------------- Subject: MTLTrains From: info@mtltrains.com Date: Tue, November 30, 2010 16:45 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mtl>D-C No:89 16:15 RETARD Retard indéterminé.Train immobilisé à la gare Vendôme.Problème de portes Mtl>V-H No:121 16:20 RETARD 15 minutes de retard à partir de la gare Vendôme. 30 novembre 2010 à 16:43 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- I really should fix those accents.
  4. Hmmmm ---------- From http://www.cjad.com/TownHall.aspx Unreliable, infrequent, frustrating… these are some of the words that have been used to describe public transit on the West Island. We’ve heard the complaints for years but what is actually being done to improve the situation? We will find out on November 30th during a special 1-hour CJAD Town Hall broadcast live from Lucien L’Allier train station. The broadcast, from 4p to 5p, on The Ric Peterson Show, will include representatives from your public transit agencies; the Montreal Transit Corporation (MTC/STM) and the Montreal Transit Agency (MTA/AMT). They will be there to answer YOUR questions. We encourage you to get involved. Join us at Lucien L’Allier train station and ask your question in-person. You can also call-in, text-in or post your questions on our CJAD Facebook page. We would love to hear what’s on your mind ahead of time as well. E-mail us your horror stories, complaints and questions at bettertransit@cjad.com. It’s the first in a series of CJAD Town Halls to take place in 2010/2011. If you have any suggestions on issues you would like us to tackle let us know! ---------- Why can't the AMT hold it's public meetings at one of the downtown train stations?
  5. Well then they must be checking this site, since I picked up that info this afternoon. :-)
  6. Does anyone have any information on the information session for the Dorion line? The AMT web site says it's in St-Anne, http://www.amt.qc.ca/salle_de_presse/commu...ommuniqueid=107 Vaudreuil–Hudson – Jeudi 11 novembre, 19 h Centre Harpell : 60, rue Saint-Pierre, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue The press release from Newwire says Holiday Inn Pointe-Claire http://www.newswire.ca/fr/releases/archive...0/03/c8750.html Vaudreuil-Hudson - Jeudi 11 novembre, 19 h Hôtel Holiday Inn Pointe-Claire : 6700, Autoroute transcanadienne, Pointe-Claire
  7. RSS Feeds now available for all AMT train delays. But only for the current day. http://www.mtltrains.com/rssfeeds.php
  8. I caught the tail end of this on the news last night. The anchor said that the Hamilton fans might have to cheer for the Halifax TiCats, or ... the Toronto Argonauts. I'm sure she was kidding. I know Quebec City is hoping to get a team one day. Football is very popular in the province. But I'd hate to see Hamilton go.
  9. Ok, how do I get my profile picture to show up on my posts? It shows up in my profile, but not on my posts. Never mind, got it.
  10. Standardize to what?? I take these Bombardier BiLevels all the time, they seem fine to me.
  11. Summary delay stats by train, collected by my AMT delay system are available at : www.mtltrains.com/stats.php Values are updated hourly.
  12. Interesting stuff! Sharing does seem much cheaper than building a whole new run, but it sounds like I should not hold my breath for either.
  13. Thanks for all the info. I've been riding the Deux-Montagnes line for years and years. A moved to Vaudreuil shows me a world of difference between the two lines. The problems on that line don't all seem to be related CP traffic. Just again this AM, locomotive problems. While I don't really know much about these engines (or trains really), it seems to me that these fancy new cars from Bombardier are heavier and require two locomotives (front and back). Again this morning, only 1 of them was working. at least that was the annoucement.
  14. I seem to recall some talk about adding adding extra tracks on the Mtl-V/H line to allow the AMT to have their own set of tracks. I see 2 pairs of tracks from Dorion to about Dorval or Lachine. 2 for Via, and two for AMT/CP. So the plan would be to add another pair to split up the AMT/CP traffic, for a total of 3 pair?? I also noted this morning that there was both freight and via trains running on that second pair. So I guess that Via and freight use the same tracks. Or at least sometimes??
  15. I've been taking #25 most of time since April. They've changed the cars to those brand new one from Bombardier.
