Confederation Line - Train Tests Spotting

Recommended Posts

Welcome Jebus. Thanks for sharing your videos. Great to see lots of action under the cover of night. Nights are something we don’t always see very often.

As some who may or may not be aware. The fencing has been taken down at Bayview Stn (on Albert). Now one can get closer to the action. 

Here's a screenshot from a video I did of a Train that departed Bayview EB 20190418_203307.jpg.7d4f3c04d7df158b97cf0155258ceaf5.jpg

So, according to my missing units list, we are missing 1127 and 1106!

You can scratch 1106 off your list.

I was out all of this morning and I don't think I saw any single trains operating, they were all doubles. There was a double unit stopped for a while at Tremblay, and so the trains were alternating on the other platform. Service was being maintained and a train was arriving every 2.5 minutes. As well, at Tunney's, there was also a train parked at one platform, so arriving trains were stopping on the other platform. In both cases, the stopped train departed after some time. Potentially they were testing scenarios or could have been a glitch. But in any case, the service was maintained with the stopped train without issue!

1119 is Bluenose (was paired with 1105)

Trains are currently dispersed pretty randomly. Some trains are less than a minute apart in one direction but 7-10 in the other.
