SkyTrain 137-156 are Bombardier ICTS Mark I units built in 1995 in Kingston, Ontario. They run exclusively on the Expo Line in 6 car sets and may be coupled with other Mark I cars from other build years.

Features

Interior layout of Mark I 700/800 series cars.
Also known as MK-1B's, they have different brakes and white rear panels, as opposed to black on pre-1990 units. Their windshield wipers hang downwards and the interior is similar to the interior of the 1991 stock trains, both different compared to their 1984 and 1985 counterparts. The door motor is also different compared to other Mark I cars in the fleet.

They originally featured door buttons, but were removed shortly upon delivery. The buttons were either covered up with a plate and or disconnected.

All were repainted from the BC Transit livery to the sweep shortly after the handover of ownership to TransLink.

Other than minor interior and exterior works, these cars have yet to be refurbished and are not part of the current refurbishment project that is currently ongoing for the 1984 and 1985 Mark I cars. These cars did not have their interior lights retrofitted in 2011 to LEDs as part of an initial refurbishment project.

Retirement

As these cars did not undergo any major refurbishments, it is speculated that this batch along with the Mark I cars ordered in 1991 may be retired between 2021 and 2024, when a new order of Mark III cars meant to replace some Mark I cars arrive. However, there are no confirmed reports as to which Mark I cars will be retired first.

Details

Trains operate in 6 car sets, or 3 groups of 2 car semi-permanent married sets. Sets can be coupled with other Mark I pairs from other build years.
