To trains: 05 06 09 18 19 20 34
  7. I also saw 1129 with the name Boreal, but possible they put it on two as a mistake?
  8. I have spotted 1110, 1119 and 1128. As for names of trains from the contest last year, I have made a list of the ones I know. I will update this list so if anyone knows any others, let me know. 1103-Emily Carr 1122-Log Driver 1130-Billy Bishop
  9. The past couple weekends I have seen maintenance (?) crews walking the line inbetween Hurdman and Lees, surprised how little train testing I have actually seen recently to be honest. Will be going through Hurdman tomorrow around noon, interested to see if there will be any testing or not. -Charie
  10. In one of the FEDCO power point presentations they had a picture of the machine with a snowplow attachment. It was one from a couple of months ago if you would like to find it.
  11. There is also a new bus paint scheme that will be seen on the new Novabuses coming in a couple months, from what Inhave heard it is similar (ish) the the Confederation Line livery, so I would guess the FLIRTs will be similar as well. I also quite like the LINT paint scheme, as it is a clean solid colour and just suits the train well. I really enjoy riding on the LINTs, very comfortable and a very smooth ride, and will be sad to see them go, except when I will take the train to the airport, of course. -Charlie
  12. The lines are named after which streets they pass underneath, for example the Yonge-University-Spadina Line originally just passed under those 3 streets. Same thing for the Bloor-Danforth line and the Shepherd line. The exception is the Scarborough RT, which only operates in Scarborough so it was named the.
  13. I believe a couple years ago they put in place 30 minute or less frequencies along about Lakeshore lines, so now they are about cutting that in half. Really handy for everyone who lives along the lines, and the capacity must be enormous considering all the trains are 10-12 double decker cars long. I believe it come into effect very soon, like in the coming weeks or something. -Charlie
  14. In addition to the old 8 and 40, there were also peak hour extensions of routes 49 (old route 149) that was numbered 49, and 48 (old 148) that was numbered 48, these routes are about as local as you can get, and only served Alta Vista. There were also other express routes that served Alta Vista/ Ottawa South to downtown,(40,41,42, 43,44, 45, 46, 47, 48,49). Some of these routes still exist today as 200 series routes, but the majority were cancelled a while ago. There were and still are a lot of government workers that live in Ottawa South, especially in Alta Vista and some parts of South Key/Greenboro, so that could be one reason why there used to be such good connectivity to downtown and Gatineau. Like the 48 and 49 were not really north to south routes, they just had a lot of people who would ride them to Gatineau during rush hour.

  15. Well it could be because that they only ever had 2 things in green, the 417 widening and the Scott/Albert bus detour. In fact, Belfast was never green, however if they had chosen to put it in green since it had been completed, it be yellow again now because it has gone under construction once again.
