    A Snapshot update for Rideau Station (surprisingly or perhaps not so much, the hardest to get photos of). https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/snapshot-of-rideau-station-november-8-2018

    The city just shared with media a memo to clarify the Revenue Service Availability date and associated liquidated damages. I have shared and posted it on the O-Train Fans website here : https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/clarification-on-lrt-revenue-service-availability-and-associated-liquidated-damages
  9. That’s odd. Sorry about that I just fixed it. There was a permissions error. Again my apologies and thank you for being it to my attention.

    OC Bus Spottings

    Didn't the early 60xx-61xx series D60LF also have sliding windows? I know they provide better air flow but they seriously don't slide well or easily get stuck, unlike the tip in windows (that make alot of noise snapping open or closed).
  11. Hi, we saved it on O-Train Fans. You can find it here. https://www.otrainfans.ca/forum/topic/19-general-sto-and-gatineau-transit-news/

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    The City of Ottawa released a Confederation Line update memo today. You can consult it here on the O-Train Fans site: https://www.otrainfans.ca/blogs/o-train-confederation-line-project-update-october-2-2018 Important notes from the memo are as follows: Major milestone reached on September 11, 2018 when a train completed the first end-to-end run by traveling between Tunney's Pasture to Blair Station. Train movement and testing has begun in the downtown tunnel. Automatic Train Operation is operating and in use on the eastern track. Expanding to the western tracks and tunnel sections soon. The city continues to monitor and track the project but there is currently no change from the update provided at FEDCO on September 10, 2018. As a result, no update to the Revenue Service Availability Date at this time.
  13. It appears to be 45 degrees to me too. I just checked on Google Maps.
  14. Over the past couple weeks, we have added photos for all the stations (minus the elusive St. Laurent) to the site. You can see how the stations are progressing as well as the general layouts. Also launched yesterday afternoon is our new forum, with a focus on the O-Train. You are welcome to join us in the discussions we will have there. www.otrainfans.ca

    2019 Nova LFS Order

    If you think about it, in the current fleet, only the Invero has a rear window. The D60LF, D60LFr, the double deck, Orion VII Hybrid all do not. Historically, most buses did have rear windows. Incidentally, all (as far as I know) STO buses have rear windows including the artics.
