Seen here is Blackbeard's Revenge Pirate Ship mailboat convertion sailing on Nassau Harbour on its way out to sea yesterday evening. This was purchased secondhand from an unknown mailboat operator who used to transport freight to family Islands from the Potter's Cay dock with the crane mounted on the front of the ship. My photo credit.

Winnipeg Transit 977, a 2003 D60LF originally purchased by OC Transpo, on Route 671 Dalhousie to the University of Manitoba, in the early morning of September 13th, 2022. This route connects several neighbourhoods in southwestern Winnipeg with the U of M and the BLUE Line.

Spotted TTC work cars RT14/15 and RT34/35 while passing Davisville yard.  RT14/15 (previously H1 5336 and H4 5609) is used for asbestos abatement, while RT34/35 (previously H4 5648 and 5651) is used for general maintenance.

RT15 was the first Hawker-Siddeley car to be delivered to the TTC, beginning a 49-year legacy of H-class cars, and is also the oldest Hawker work car in the TTC fleet. 

All photos are mine. 

Edited to fix a typo.

It must be a different RT14/15, because it's an H4, not an H1 (the last H1s were scrapped in 2017, leaving only the H4s). Also interesting to see that RT34/35 had its original undercarriage removed (wonder why). Great photos!

Thanks! I didn't know they scrapped the H1's in 2017 (just going by TransitToronto's info). Just out of curiosity, is there a way to tell the H1/4's apart? From what I've read, they're pretty similar from the outside.

Yes, the H1s, H2s (none of which ever became workcars for some reason) & H4s all had a somewhat different roofline, and the H4s also have reflective rims around both front windows (which I believe they must've received during their midlife rebuild, much like the H5s, as neither car series appears to have them in older photos).
