  1. Took the day off today because they were delivering our new counter top for our bathroom and in the afternoon, I went for a little Métro ride. From Honoré-Beaugrand to Berri-UQAM on the Green line, then from Berri-UQAM to Jean-Drapeau and back on the Yellow line, then the Orange line from Berri-UQAM to Jean-Talon then a quick hop on the Blue line from Jean-Talon to Fabre and back. Then made my way to Honoré-Beaugrand and a little stop at the Galeries d'Anjou shopping centre. Here are the pics: 31-045 (2011 Nova LFS at Honoré-Beaugrand station on route 18 Beaubien A Canadian Vickers MR-63 leaving Honoré-Beaugrand station (not my best...) Two MR-63s at the end of the station, the one on the right, headed by element 81-546, 80-023 and 81-546 switching tracks to go towards Angrignon station Getting off at Jean-Drapeau (not my best again...) 21-252 (2001 Nova LFS) outside of Jean-Drapeau on route 767 La Ronde/La Plage driven by the president of the aforementioned FHTCQ (see first post in this thread), Normand Roy At Berri-UQAM, an MR-63 with 81-625 in front (or rear) dropping off passengers before switching sides to go back to Longueuil - Université-de-Sherbrooke. The Yellow and Blue lines use 6 car trains (two 3-car elements), so taking pics like this one can be possible at the right stations. Fabre station Two Bombardier MR-73 trains at Fabre, with car 79-514 in the foreground, holding up the rear. Aaggghhh!!! Outside in the rain... 30-100 (2010 Nova LFS) laying over at Honoré-Beaugrand And at Galeries d'Anjou, I went to Sears because I spotted some closed toe men's sandals on their website, turns out they're only available on the net... But I did get these two minicraps running on the STM's seniors shuttles called "Navette Or", 30-402 and 30-410 which are 2010 Ford/Girardin E-450/G5. After that, I went and fought traffic in the rain to go pick my daughter at school. Enjoy!!
  2. Funny, I thought the RER B was only only operated by the RATP. Must've changed since my trip in '07.
  3. Here are some of my best shots from this month so far: Société de transport de Montréal 1973 GMC T6H5307N 14-008 in the old CTCUM (Montreal Urban Community Transit Commission) colours when it was put in service. This bus has been restored by the Fondation de l'Héritage du Transport en Commun du Québec in 1997. It was retired by the STCUM in 1987 and finished it career in Granby, QC before being scooped up by the FHTCQ. It is seen on Ontario and du Havre close to the Frontenac metro station.

  4. Use of a flash is pretty much prohibited by every transit authority worldwide. Hope you enjoy your new camera fully.
  5. Had mine sent in to Canon in June 2011 after I went to a camera store (L.L. Lozeau) on Plaza St-Hubert here in Montreal (bought it at Future Shop in November 2010) and I took the extended warranty and they supplied me with a replacement camera while mine was out being fixed. Got it back 3 weeks later, good as new. I don't know any good camera stores in NYC (never been to NYC myself, lol), but if there's one that can test your camera and tell you what the issue is, you should look into it.

  7. Cool pics. If I may suggest, you should have your camera checked out though, maybe a optical globe issue like I had with mine back in 2011, been working good since then. Just sayin.
