Can you fix the orientation of this picture?

 I tried. Picture was uploaded in the right orientation but posted the way you see it. I tried twice.

2469 is on the pad at Haysboro. 

Saw it on my way home, last night.

Those "do not hump" labels on the outer tarp, i still can't stop laughing at it... 😂

Yeah an interesting name for a rail sorting method. (I think) I googled it a while back.

Another note... Is it just me or are the Series 9s gutless as hell compared to the Series 5, 6, 7 ands 8s? 

Inside or Outside?

 

If inside, that was the whole point of them. Less seating. More room for more people and more accessible.

That's another thing I have wondered in the past. 

By gutless I am referring to the acceleration... They seem to take off very slow compared to the older vehicles.

It depends, down hill there gutless. Uphill more power for sure. When they first when into service they had some serious balls (both acceleration and breaking) They seem to have been dummied down since the first days of service. 

Overall pretty much the same.

Not really anything new, as Calgary City Council approved the first series 10s this budget or 2 budgets ago for delivery to begin in 2021.

 

The thing that has fluctuated is the number of cars we were getting, due provincial funding. Worst case scenario was the 15 we see today. Best case scenario i believe was 33, with us essentially receiving cars 31-33 free because of discounts applied for ordering a certain number, etc.

Was the performance limiting due to wheel flats or braking issues?

Possibly to make it easier for operators to be consistent with their driving, regardless of what vehicle they're driving.

At least, my guess...

No not to my knowledge. But the S200s do have softer wheels and are prone to flatting and wearing out more quickly. The make a heck of a lot of noise too!

Sounds about right to me...
 

Full power acceleration going downhill would make passengers fly around to the software helps with that. However full braking going outbound at 39ave station with a 9 causes some hard braking around 10kph-0kph pulling into the station because of the slight downhill grade.

2469 very clean and shiny. Does not appear to be at parts car, ongoing commissioning being performed. If you look closely you will see a Siemens tech on the roof...

With Siemens not making the cut for the Green Line I actually thought we wouldn't be getting anymore. Or have they figured out the reliability and supply issues?

My friend asked me a question that I didn't have an answer for. What are these for?

Because the S200s don’t have a station bars in the middle of the doorways, they installed these bars that swing out to assist boarding using the steps on the side of the train 😉
