  1. Hello, I am the webmaster for O-Train Fans. We are an rail enthusiast run fan site for Ottawa's LRT network, the O-Train. Covering both the Confederation and Trillium lines, through station profiles, train information, construction snapshot updates and more. It's the one-stop shop for all your O-Train needs. Plenty of photos and videos, as well as Behind the Scenes video specials. Be sure to check us out at www.otrainfans.ca
  2. I’m not sure I follow. Do you mean there’s a plexiglass divider between the doors and seats and it’s mounted on the opposite side of the door? Doesn't sound like the best setup. Usually it’s above the door or just beside it. Odd design choice. Is the space around the door that tight to not have been able to accommodate it as usual?
  3. Final snapshot update (photos and video) for this round now posted. Parliament to Tunney's Pasture. https://www.otrainfans.ca/snapshot-updates/snapshot-for-parliament-lyon-pimisi-bayview-and-tunney-s-pasture-june-13-2019 If you missed any of the other recent updates (Blair to Rideau), you can find them on the Snapshot Updates page : https://www.otrainfans.ca/snapshot
  4. Surprisingly I haven't ridden them yet. Got to make a point of checking the Novas out soon. I'm familiar with them on the STO and the STM. Overall a nice bus, and a good upgrade for OC Transpo, especially over the Inveros.
  5. Snapshot photo update (finally) posted. You can view it here : https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/snapshot-for-lees-uottawa-and-rideau-june-9-2019
  6. I have posted a new Snapshot video for Lees, uOttawa and Rideau Stations (filmed on Sunday). Hoping to have some time later today to post the snapshot photos to the site.
  7. Is the bus actually being used in Service or just driving around?
  8. The Q1 2019 Confederation Line Quarterly Memo to Council was just released to media. I have shared it on O-Train Fans for your interest: https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/memo-q1-2019-confederation-line-quarterly-memo-to-council
  9. The FEDCO presentation is now available on O-Train Fans here : https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/confederation-line-update-fedco-june-4-2019
  10. +1 for Tremblay. Either the front side standing in the middle of the ring road looking down, or behind the station on the path towards Hurdman. Cyrville is good too if you don't mind being overhead or 3/4 angle shots.
  11. I forgot to add earlier that in addition to the Video Snapshot, there is also a regular Photo Snapshot update today. Blair, Cyrville, St. Laurent, Tremblay and Hurdman Stations. Video Snapshot update: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7YC6c2Cp5o Photo Snapshot update: https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/snapshot-of-blair-cyrville-st-laurent-tremblay-and-hurdman-may-31-2019
  12. Thank you for the comments. Much appreciated. I'm not professionally a videographer, but incidentally, I do work with the media for my full-time work.
  13. New Snapshot video for Blair, Cyrville, St. Laurent, Tremblay and Hurdman Stations.
  14. A new memo outlining the process update on the Substantial Completion. You can view it on O-Train Fans here : https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/memo-o-train-confederation-line-substantial-completion-process-update Not too much to report however the current timeline provided at the May FEDCO (no doubt achieving RSA in Q2 2019) is still current. More updates at next FEDCO on June 4, 2019.
  15. Just received by the City media relations email the MEMO on the Certifier's decision. Check it out here: https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/memo-confederation-line-substantial-completion "The City has been reviewing the IC’s determination and assessing the impacts of the determination on the overall program. Broadly, the IC agrees with the City’s opinion that RTG has not achieved Substantial Completion and agrees that additional work is required. Despite this assessment, it is important to note that RTG has been continuing work on all areas in an effort toclose out issues throughout the Confederation Line system."
