  1. I think everyone needs to read this so we're all on the same page: https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2021/June_16/Reports/15_Transit_Systems_Engineering_Osgoode_Interlocking_Incident.pdf. MAN mode is a fully manual mode, even on the TRs - think Emergency Mode on the SRT, as there needs to be a mode where you can override the system completely as an absolute fallback (ie. complete loss of the signal system with trains trapped in tunnels). When a train is in MAN mode, it reports it's position and speed to the system controlle
  2. This was literally posted two posts above.
  3. To the best of my knowledge, TYSSE was the first time that TTC did not go with tie on ballast for any of their interlockings. Anything prior to that is still tie on ballast.
  4. Would probably come down to risk analysis on the elevated section. Are the guideway walls strong enough to handle a bus hitting them in the event of loss of control?
  5. The only way such photos could be acquired would be to take it from the cab of the train going into the pocket track (policy violation - no electronic devices in the cab) or from track level while on an inspection (an even worse policy violation). In short, don't hold your breath.
  6. Also, given the position of some of the axle counters and signals in the ATC retrofit, especially in relation to the platforms, I guarantee that that any new trains will be the same length as the existing trains.
  7. It's roughly five minutes each way. I strongly suspect that half of the service trains will turn back, and half will continue single track to Pioneer Village, giving the single-tracked area roughly a double headway compared to the rest of the line.
  8. That was the original plan, but last I heard is that it'll return to service once Crosstown and ATC upgrades in the area are done.
  9. TTC Helps literally tweeted to multiple people yesterday that the 2 hour rule only entitles you to two hours of service, and after 2 hours you were expected to exit the vehicle and retap. The tweets have since been removed with the clarification. I can understand why everyone was suddenly up in arms. Found some screencaps/tweets that led to the confusion: https://twitter.com/MetroManTO/status/1233911063667605504/photo/2 https://twitter.com/TTChelps/status/1233916147105509376
  10. No it doesn't. Seniors, students, children, employees, etc. all make the same noise.
  11. IIRC, it was tested a few years back at Finch, when the backups started to become a daily problem. It didn't go well.
  12. That's one of numerous things that can trigger the blinking. All the blinking means is that one of the onboard systems is running in a degraded mode.
  13. Because the TTC is very good at being inconsistent. You already mentioned one (Eglinton Pocket Y/Y/L vs Osgoode Pocket R/R/C/L). Other ones are: - NB platform -> SB mainline Lawrence (Y/Y) vs NB platform ->SB mainline Eglinton (Y/G/L) - NB mainline -> SB platform Eglinton (Y/Y/L) vs SB mainline -> NB platform Bloor (R/R/C) You even get inconsistencies in what moves are available: NB mainline to SB platform at Eglinton is a valid move, but NB mainline to SB platform at Lawrence is not.
