  1. Snapshot of the REM - Îles-des-Soeurs to Brossard - August 13, 2021 A view of REM construction progress as seen from Îles-des-Soeurs to Brossard Station. Special thanks to Sophie and David Bellerive for providing this video.
  2. Toronto's Line 3 Scarborough RT - Part 1/2 - History and Technology with Seth McDermott - July 2021 In this video discussion with Seth McDermott, a transit enthusiast and historian, we discuss the history and development of this very interesting and unique transit line, as well as the linear induction motor (LIM) technology that it helped pioneer. Be sure to also watch Part 2 of this video series, in which the conversation continues, and touches on the many expansion and upgrade options that have been debated over the years, and its eventual and soon approaching permanent closure in 2023. (Part 2 will be released in the coming days).
  3. Réseau express métropolitain, Montréal's new transit system, with spokesperson Jean-Vincent Lacroix The currently under construction Réseau express métropolitain, will be Montreal's newest transit system. Featuring 26 stations and a length of 67 kilometres, and stretching from the south shore to Deux-Montagnes in the north and Anse-à-l'Orme in the west, it is poised to transform rapid-transit in the Greater Montreal Region in the coming years. Featuring exciting new underground stations in downtown Montreal, and passing underneath the imposing Mount Royal, it is sure an exciting time for the city. In this video discussion with Jean-Vincent Lacroix, spokesperson for the REM, we discuss the system currently being built, the next steps and the organization behind this massive infrastructure project (CPDQ Infra).
  4. Hi @MTL66. Thank you for your offer to help. I am handling all submissions and contributions for posting onto the site directly. You can send photos, text (for stations, trains and lines) to media@railfans.ca. Typically it will be added onto the site within a day or so if all is in order. All contributions would have the authors name listed. Ideally an article is written by only one person in its entirety. In regards to the stations, I invite you to visit https://www.otrainfans.ca/confederation-stations/parliament where you can see how they are organized and presented. Typically they consist of an Overview and then Unique Features. The articles for Trains and Lines themselves are mainly overviews. Thank you for your interest in our site.

  8. What will be the final allocation once the MR-63 is completely retired and the Azur have all arrived? Orange - Azur Green - MR-73 and any extra Azur Blue - MR-73 Yellow - MR-73 will this be how it ends up? and on a side note, how many full trains run during peak and off peak to service the Yellow?
  9. Thanks for the latest info. I am curious then, which models are running on which lines at this point... As stated above, the MR-63 is running the last elements on the Green Line only. The MR-73 is running on the Yellow line and the Green line. Beyond that... What is the makeup on the Blue and Orange lines now? IS the Blue line a mix of MR-73 and AZUR? And what about the Orange line now, mostly or all Azur? Thanks
