General CTrain Discussion

Recommended Posts

I noticed today at Anderson garage that the main train paint booth is gone! And in its place there's a massive pit being dug up! Does anybody know what the heck is going on over there?

Slightly fancy covers they're putting around the first two columns (closest to station structure) at Brentwood:

And the rest have now been painted blue:

So real-time signs are back to the old format at fish creek. Is it temporary?

Same thing system wide. I hope it's permanent cause frankly I dislike the new layout, especially when it says a train is 2 mins away after it's alright left

Seemed like it was 100% displaying the old format too, not flipping back and forth between old and new layouts like in July.

Some shots of the new crossing gates at Chinook:

It's nicer having a fully open pedestrian crossing without the 'corrals' to walk through.

Nice to see they're finally installed. I hate coming through there there's always someone that runs in front of the train at the last second.

There's a new chime before announcements on the CTrain platforms

Does it sound like the same chime that plays in the West leg?

I heard it at Lions Park. They were saying something about how they're doing maintenance on the arrival signs.

New chimes might have something to do with the new OCC opening up soon...

OCC? What is that?

I use Shaw go Wi-Fi and it seems to be fast for me? Maybe the guest  account are "geared down"

The S200s use the Wi-Fi for data up/down loads
