  2. In preparation for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game here in Toronto, the TTC retrofitted streetcar 4213 to serve as a mobile Nike Shoe store over the weekend. The Streetcar runs from McCaul to Bathurst Along Queen from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM. I got some photos today of 4213 at the McCaul Loop.

  4. Photos of buses, trams and the T-Banen in Oslo, Norway during July. The local agency is Ruter.

These routes are interlined in the two groups, since at some terminals, there are no facilities to turn trains around (Majorstuen for 12 and Grefsen for 13 and 19). SL79s cannot run on routes 17 or 18 because they are unidirectional and cannot turn around at Rikshospitalet, and the 13 since it interlines with route 17. Conversely, SL95s can't operate of routes 11, 12 or 19 because they cannot navigate the tight turns near Majorstuen.

  5. My photos of trains of NSB (Norges Statsbaner) During my trip to Norway in June and July. Most of the photos were taken in the Sognefjord Region on the Flåm Line. Local Trains on the Bergen Line from Bergen to Arna, Voss and Myrdal. All local trains are comprised of Class 69s.

The line is very touristy, and is Hauled by two El 18 Locomotives (one at each end of the train). It is also one of the steepest Standard Gauge railways in the world, with a maximum gradient of 5.5% (1:18). During the 20 km trip from Myrdal to Flåm, the line descends over 800 metres.

This is one of the narrowest Fjords in the area, and has been used as inspiration for many of the tv and film productions that take place in the area, most notably Vikings and Frozen.

  7. At any gambling casino From Monte Carlo to Reno, They tell you that a beginner Comes out a winner.

  10. Unbelievable how Canada won the Gold Medal in Men's Baseball at the 2015 Pan-Am Games.
  11. Anything can happen now. The bus was pulled from the York U standby to help over at the aquatics centre. It may have done route 196 after. These standby buses are open, meaning that they can go anywhere. I was just lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
  12. Pan-Am Games opened last Friday here in Toronto. Here are some of my photos from Yesterday's Pan-Am services: Toronto Transit Commission 4406 on 511 Bathurst by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4407 on 511 Bathurst by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4074 on 511 Bathurst by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4239 on 511 Bathurst by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 4408 on 509 Harbourfront by Orion V, on Flickr CIT Laurentides 619 on Pan-Am Shuttle by Orion V, on Flickr CIT Laurentides 620 on Pan-Am Shuttle by Orion V, on Flickr CIT Laurentides 626 on Pan-Am Shuttle by Orion V, on Flickr CIT Laurentides 620 on Pan-Am Shuttle by Orion V, on Flickr CIT Laurentides 627 on Pan-Am Shuttle by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 8077 on 193 Exhibition Rocket by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 9011 on 29 Dufferin by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 9040 on 29 Dufferin by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 1617 on 29 Dufferin by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 7949 on 195 Jane Rocket by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 9423 on 106 York University by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 8209 on 196 York University Rocket by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 7681 on 198 UofT Scarborough Rocket by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 7783 on 194 Aquatics Centre Rocket by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 7555 on 38 Highland Creek by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 1391 on 95 York Mills by Orion V, on Flickr Toronto Transit Commission 8409 on 95 York Mills by Orion V, on Flickr Enjoy!
  13. I forgot that there were 2 GMs that were kept: I think 2252 and 2444. 2345 is definitely a parts bus. The info about a GM at the Wilson Division came from an operator based there in February.
  14. It may be the case that all buses are wheelchair accessible (that has been the case since late 2011, with the exception of a single GM that apparently is at Wilson Division), but this in not the case for the streetcars. We have 7 or so accessible streetcars and ~240 that are not accessible. As for the black fronts, that is the TTC's standard livery. If you are referring to bus #8004, that bus is in the special 192 Airport Rocket Livery.
  15. Blue lights on buses and streetcars indicate that the vehicle is wheelchair accessible.
