Snapshot of Cyrville and Blair Stations - November 10, 2018

Cyrville Station 

The main entrance of Cyrville Station.
The accent lighting along the underside of the roof awning. I keep saying it but it really does look sharp, especially at night.
Fare gates installed and activated.
Looking down towards the eastbound platform.
Another angle of the main entrance with the O-Train station marker visible.
Stairs that head down towards the pathway that connects to the businesses off of Cyrville and Labelle, such as CANEX, among others.
The main entrance as seen from the opposite side of Cyrville (from the second entrance).
The second Cyrville Station entrance.
This entrance is located opposite the main entrance and is much smaller in size.
It only features stairs and an elevator, bringing passengers down to the fare gates located at platform level.
The elevator.
And the stairs, that head down to the fare gates and platform level.
The tracks heading westbound to the next station... St. Laurent. Notice the TPSS (Traction Power Sub-Station) in grey near the top right of the photo, which provides the necessary voltage and current to power the trains.
Looking back up Cyrville towards the two entrances of the station.

Blair Station 

Blair Station, as seen from the entrance of the Gloucester Centre. Two O-Train station markers are visible. The one in the background lists both Train and Bus, while the one in the Foreground lists only Train. An error perhaps?
The main entrance is located to the right (through the fenced off area).
The local bus platforms below and the Confederation Line above to the left
Bike racks for passengers.
The local bus platforms.
The current eastern end of the Confederation Line tracks. Notice the yellow track stop buffers.
The overhead signage indicates that this platform will also serve westbound service towards Tunney's Pasture. This will change to eastbound service in 2022 when the Confederation Line is extended to Orleans.
New meeting the Old Transitway structures.
The overhead walkway that connects to the pedestrian overpass crossing highway 174 as well as the other walkways towards the Gloucester Centre.
The elevators and fare gates (not visible)
The overhead walkway. Interestingly this structure was retained from the original Transitway station, with the red windows and canopy roof removed.
The platforms looking westbound.
And the end of the line, eastbound... until 2022.
