CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

What is it about the seats that people don't like? Is it the hard material? I don't mind the seats in new NYC subway trains. . . 

And I don't mind the hard seats in a ETS 7000 series XD40. But then a NYC subway train or a ETS 7000 series bus ≠ a CT S200...

It's both the shape, as mentioned the seats don't fit most adults, particularly the sideways ones. And also the fact that it's solid, flat plastic, which is very rare in trains. I'm really curious because if the operator seats are just as bad as the passenger seats, that makes it much worse

Car 2333 has the NYC style seats (from what I seen on YouTube) Series 9s are a bit more grippy. Both uncomfortable.

Dont worry peps... the operator seats are not any better!

There's another S200 sitting at Alyth and one is at the border. Siemens had suspended production of the Calgary 9's with the completion of the initial order of 63 units. Production  of the second batch of 6 (possibly more if funds can be found) will restart sometime next year.

Maybe they can iron out the issues with another manufacturer.

I long for the day that Calgary sees anything but New Flyer/Nova buses, and Siemens trains

Has anyone found the vertical poles for the sideseats poorly designed? They angle out right at head height (well, my head, anyway, at ~5'7"), so if you're sitting, say, to the right of the pole but you want the door to your left, the angled out portion is in your head's way as you get up and turn left towards the door. Hit my head doing so today and informed CT about this in case it's been reported multiple times.

Yes! I absolutely agree with you!

2nd S200 showed up at the pad but later went back to Alyth because of another S200 sitting there. I think this car has been there for quite sometime now..

I have completely lost count!

I didn't think anyone was interested so I stopped posting the updates but here they are,  454 and 455  are delayed, 456 and 457 are in the house, the car that was at Haysboro and then sent back to Alyth was a returning refurb and there should be another 9 at Alyth as well.

Pretty sure 2456 was in house during the OBMF tour. Was nice to have one of each gen lined up!

Even though 2456 arrived a month ago and it's still being worked on at AG, I doubt it was at OBMF for the open house as it doesn't even have the skirt panels attached yet. But then again, nothing's impossible.

By the way..... what the heck are they doing with the series 9s right now? I haven't been up in the Northeast for quite a while but they have a team of Siemens people up there and they're working on them hardcore at night!
