  1. Today's R160 PA check: "PA check. It's too loud and too clear". 😆
  2. I'm just mad that Byford went. If it's too much for him, then it might be too much period. By coincidence, I just happen to be reading The Power Broker, the story of Robert Moses (rise and spectacular fall). Moses had absolute power of his domain (highways), but he also controlled the politicians. These politicians (Mayor Wagner for example) would make public complaints about some things, but in the end, they fell in line with power. It's the sort of thing Cuomo is doing now. Except he's thrice as stupid as Moses and he lacks any vision.
  3. Could that have been what drove Andy to quit? That seems like such a big turnaround, considering the MTA was thinking, for years now, of keeping 110 or whatever it was R32s still in service. And it would make sense, considering the recent R179 fiasco, that maybe Andy was just fed up.
  4. I signed the petition last night for the Q69 just because a need to get some sort of awareness to Aravelle, BUT Sandi, who wrote the petition, is flat out wrong in saying the Q69 runs 24-hour service: This is the exact wording: "The Q69 which connects Queensbough South to Jackson Heights will become a Limited Stop Bus route, and will no longer run 24 hours. This will force riders to walk somewhere between 5-10 street blocks to get to the next stop. This route is widely used by shoppers carrying grocery bags, students with heavy loads, mothers with strollers, as well as shift workers. Suggestion: keep the local stops, and continue with 24 hour service. " I wrote in my comment that the frequencies and cut service-hours were bad, but then I wrote that Sandi better get the facts straight first. I wrote that the Q69 has never had 24-hour service in the first place. What happened this morning? My comment isn't there anymore.
  5. I went with fellow busfans recently to Canada. One got in touch with the good folks at Cornwall Transit, who allowed us to get a tour of their property. Cornwall Transit is a small agency, with about 15 transit buses and some cutaways. It is also one of two agencies in Canada that still operate the Orion VI, the true low floor bus with the rear door located at the very end of the bus (unusual in the USA and Canada, but not the rest of the world. Go figure).

  6. Part-time versus full-time stops/service. The always stops at Nostrand, Utica, the other express stops, but it does not always stop at the local stops. The doesn't always stop at the station (I think it's a rush-hour line). The yellow Broadway always runs between 57th Street and Coney Island via West End (solid black), but the rush-hour extension to Astoria does not (the gray). Same for the yellow Broadway on the Brighton Line. At that time, there was a skip-stop pattern with the , so you can see what stops the always made (Prospect Park, Church, Beverley, Newkirk, Av H, M, etc), but the gray indicates it stops part-time (Parkside, Cortelyou, Av J, Av U).
  7. And maybe I'm generalizing a little too much here, but aren't the people who take the express buses in SI (or just about all of Staten Island south of North Shore)......conservative about this stuff? Are they not the first ones who complain about the free-loading, high crime, anti-police ShitBlazio administration that encourages fare-beating?
  8. I guess 5-digit numbers starting at 10001 was too hard for the MTA. That would have satisfied my OCD. But noooo, we have to go with these mixes, and I bet you the order will wind up having 4 and 5 car consist fleet numbers arranged weirdly.
  9. I'm trying to figure out how they got 4256 to be the number on this first train.
  10. OC Transpo of Ottawa has two light rail lines: the new Line 1 Confederation, and the older Line 2 Trillium. Line 1 opened in September to much fanfare, but it has had problems operating since then. There are brand-new 20 buses that have been diverted specifically as back-ups for when the line breaks down.

  11. It looks like something an older railfan would put up to drum up some interest in his work or like a thesis from a student. Still an interesting read though.
  12. ...What exactly can I find the legal basis for the "cost-neutral" thing? I read about that too much but I don't know where to look for the law or whatever it is.
  13. Added them to the CPTDB. I guessed 3 license plates that yielded sequential VINs, but I don't have any visual confirmation aside from 1901E (BC6933), so if anyone can actually confirm BC6932, BC6935, and BC6936 and say who's who, thanks.
