    Adapting with the Climate

    The new Toronto Streetcars even have sandboxes and oh my they use them heavily

    Adapting with the Climate

    This stuff is important, while I am optimistic we will be able to stop the worst on climate change, inevitably we will face more extreme weather patterns.

    Adapting with the Climate

    Sad to see nobody responded here but, I will still post this: Some sliding thermal expansion points on Line 1.
  4. Since the Transitway is getting replaced I thought it was good to do a flyover to remember what a great system we built!
  5. One thing that comes to my mind is how all the services are gonna be arranged if there is a super long Barrhaven branch and no branch to Kanata.
  6. Made a flyover video for Line 2 (Trillium Line): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQMOlo8mamQ

    Stadler FLIRT - New Trains for Trillium Line

    Do we have any images of these new buses? I for one am a big fan of the new trains, I think the design is a lot nicer than the lints.
  8. It would be fantastic if Ottawa had a national railway museum (closer to the city centre because Expo and Halton are not) that could contain old rapid transit cars from numerous systems.

    GO Transit service increase on Lakeshore East and West

    Comes into effect tomorrow actually, though Lakeshore West currently has some construction that may limit frequency for a while. Service every 15 minutes will be from the beginning of the morning peak to the end of the afternoon peak and will be the first for a main GO line. This was one big part of the RER promises at least for the Lakeshore East Line. Some things we still look forward to are electrification (big big big deal) and more improved stations with eventual level platforms. Indeed this is a lot of capacity (though some trains can be as short as 8 cars and even shorter on other lines) Heres a video overview of the routing

    TTC Subway Line Names and Routes

    Yeah I always thought the names mostly made sense.
  12. Big news in Toronto as Lakeshore East is getting 15 minute midday and Lakeshore West is getting 20 minute midday service.

    Stations - Stage 2 Trillium Line

    EA Ammendments: https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/transportation-and-parking/transportation-planning/completed-projects/trillium-line-extension-planning-and-environmental-assessment-ea-study Apparently, a new yard to be constructed West of Albion, Grade Separation with Via (sadly single tracked), and more info on the FLIRTS.
  14. Churchill line has been bought out and will be repaired, eventually
  15. Vias Long Haul Services are mostly tourist trains so I'm not sure we should really be spending on them
