2402 in Anderson Garage 

Car 2423

On Feb 1 I was in town, and got a few shots of the S200s. 2459 was running as a single car when I saw it at Brentwood that afternoon:

Check out the new “low tech fastening system” they’ve developed on the series 9s to prevent the side panels from popping open while the train is in motion. 
 

This is 2464

Looks like ass!

Good lord. I really hope ETS is paying attention to your S200s before we buy more HFLRVs as this might push them to other manufacturers

Edmonton's apparently already has had some discussions with Calgary about the potential for a future joint order. Doesn't necessarily mean S200's though. Could just be a joint competitive procurement, but, I could see it ultimately leading to S200's.`

With the Drop-In Center closed, there are suddenly a lot more homeless on the trains and in the stations this week.

Most so far seem okay, but a constant trend I've noticed is how groups of intoxicated Natives tend to cluster in the seats at the front and back of the S200s.

When the train stops and they go to leave, in their inebriated state they inevitably take too long and then get aggressive at the door closing in their faces.

I'm wondering if maybe removing that little "pod" of seats and just placing more bench along the sides would help. I know, I'm advocating for the removal of the closest thing an S200 has to comfortable seating, but those areas become garbage piles pretty regularly.

I wholeheartedly agree, but they'd better increase the height of the seatbacks of the side facing seats if they do that.

Our s200s had their front panels (below the operators' cab windows) fall off a fair bit, but all they did was just re-engineer some of the connecting locks. Nowhere near as bad as the conductive "insulators" they had at the base of our pantographs
