  1. Yeah was driving westbound on Scott street coming up to Bayview station and I was parallel to a double-linked tram. Clocked it at 60 KM/h exactly as we were approaching City Center then it slowed down as I don't imagine he was about to roll into the station from 60 to 0! 😛
  2. They've made great progress on the trains! It was 14/34 only a few weeks ago.
  3. Oh ok. That makes more sense. 🙂
  4. Oh ok. I was basing my knowledge of said plows at both ends from this link: This popped up today on Ottawa Citizen https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/egan-how-winter-ready-is-our-lrt-system-after-snow-plow-misha
  5. So just to continue this topic, I read this earlier: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/snowfall-freezes-lrt-testing-1.5024683 I'm surprised to hear these trains are having so many issues in the cold and snow! I know these were custom built for us but weren't the parent versions battle tested all over North Europe? How did they deal with it?
  6. Was talking with a friend about this a few days ago and I was curious. How do operations continue and maintain consistent service during big snowfalls? Are the rails plowed with a special vehicle or do the trains just run often and keep the train clear? What about the switching systems?
  7. From my window I spotted this down near Pimisi station.. any idea what they are up to? Looks like a giant drill.
