Transfer Point

Recommended Posts

Well it's official now... Transfer Point is now open!

The idea for Transfer Point started between me and yrt304 back in 2007. Without any web experience from either of us, nothing came of it. However, we've now launched a Flickr gallery, and including vivablue5215 and Waiting for 30 Minutes our galleries have certainly filled up. It's been a very long and tedious process sizing, watermarking, uploading and commenting every one of our photos, and the 4 of us are glad to launch it to the CPTDB!

Currently we have a very large collection of YRT and VIVA photographs - in fact almost every vehicle has a top-quality photograph in our galleries. We will be expanding to GO and TTC in future uploads happening this summer, and hopefully adding GRT and OC Transpo to our collection in the fall. Stay tuned, the best is yet to come!

With your expansion to OC Transpo, I'll be able to contribute something, and hopefully by then I will have a SLR.

Finished the GO section by adding the MCI D4500s.

Next up will be the TTC section, which should be spread over a few days.

In addition, added some interior shots to the YRT D40LF section. 410 and 806 to be exact.

Not much has been done for this week, except some minor housekeeping stuff I did for the past few days on the website.

The TTC pictures are coming; give it another week or two, we'll have a massive upload ready before I head off on my August trips.

Orion Vs have been uploaded, but it's not complete yet, as YRTeen's photos aren't up yet.

Mine will be coming in a few days after I recover from having my wisdom teeth removed (makes it kinda hard to control a mouse and keyboard when one hand is gripping an ice pack to your face :D). Expect a big update (likely the rest of the fleet) in a few days!

In addition, a few extra photos were added to the TTC and YRT galleries. Mainly interior shots were added from my visit to Miller Yard last week, as well as some photos we accidentally skipped while uploading, along with YRTeen's photos.

The photo updates will slow down this weekend, due to the fact I will be at Chicago. Therefore, don't expect much in terms of new galleries in the coming days.

In the meantime, some minor updates:

- Added a picture of 212 in the YRT gallery.

- Added a picture of 317 in the YRT gallery.

- Replaced the picture of 320 in the YRT gallery.

- Replaced the picture of 530 in the YRT gallery.

- Added an interior shot of 584 in the YRT gallery.

EDIT: Also added a pic of 8919.

We've also started a blog to keep in date with fleet information in various transit systems. It's small for now, but we're working on it.

Written by yours truly :)

I'll be adding more in the coming weeks at time allows... they will all be linked from their respective photo galleries on Flickr, so no need to search through the blog.
