Why are you always arguing with industry experts? They work in their respective fields. I’m pretty sure they know what they’re talking about. 

You make an armchair comment. Get the real deal on what’s going on. And then you get all offended and make snarky remarks. It’s tiring.

Hey i'm just sticking up for myself, personally I dont get butt hurt at all over any of the comments made.

When you have individuals who claim they're "done talking with you", than come back and seek your comments out because they cant get enough then try to boil things up by saying " Calm your tits", than i'm sorry I ain't standing by childish nonsense like that. A comment is a comment, people have their own opinions take it or leave it. I'm not going to go around telling people to "calm their tits" and start making sarcastic remarks just because my opinion or point of view differs.

I've been on this board long enough to avoid half of the childish talk that can go on here regarding foamers, etc.. When it comes to people coming at me, no way in hell i'm taking it.

You sound pretty childish right now.

People don't have the right to respect you, you have to earn their right to respect you. Clearly you haven't been doing that. People in particular fields have the mindset you're describing. Don't like it? Don't talk to them

Also, don't conflate opinions and facts, because when you do, misinformation gets spread.

Very mature, especially given your need to make remarks about my username instead of make a valid counter-argument.

Good i'm glad I sound pretty childish, and now that that's settled end of discussion.  There's no need for me to waste my time with a "valid counter-argument". Dont like my comments? Dont reply to them.

Time to get back on topic, there's no need for any extra comments from anyone.

Signing a non-disclosure agreement does not really mean criminal negligence, it means that the information is not for public consumption. The engineering community will basically ruin your life if you stamp a negligent repair, so you have nothing to worry about. The most likely reason for the information not being made public is that the TTC doesn't have the time, money, or resources to put up with hit pieces by the news from people who have never taken an engineering course in their life, and they don't have time to fight lawsuits for non-existent issues. 

Not for public consumption's one aspect of things.  Another issue that comes up that a lot of the kids here might not be familiar with yet is commercial confidentiality concerns.  Bombardier probably wouldn't want proprietary information about the ICTS product line getting out to competitors who could underbid them on refurb work, for one example.   The TTC for sure has their own specific concerns too.

I read a lot of the commission reports about the Scarborough RT when the plan to send cars to Bombardier's plant in New York State when they came out and the distinct impression I got from one document was that in this case, the information's specifically not for other transit authority consumption consumption.  The TTC paid Bombardier to do a lot of R & D work on extending the life of the Mk I ICTS cars which they rightly don't want shared for free to BC Transit and whichever agency operates the Detroit Peoplemover since they'd basically be getting a free windfall on R & D that the TTC paid the full freight on.  When you read the commission reports, apparently a finite element analysis was done on the ICTS cars.  That alone can't have been an inexpensive piece of work to do.

Now, if either of them were to approach the TTC about purchasing intellectual property that was developed for them, I'm sure a deal could be arranged.  The TTC actually had a consulting arm named "Toronto Transit Consultants" that was wound down quite a few years ago but could probably be revived for this sort of purpose if the need comes up.

Signing nondisclosure agreements is pretty routine in business.  Jeez, I've signed a few myself.
