  1. It was mentioned on the discord chat but some are suspecting it is an error. Then again, the 2nd new platform at Bayview is being tagged as for emergency use only and not really seen as an active platform. So a crossover isn't really needed for Bayview but yes it would limit the use of the second platform at Corso Italia. It has to be a mistake. Why build Corso Italia with two platforms if only one sees regular usage. Plus they no doubt need the passing track of the station to maintain frequency...
  2. There still is a switch at the halfway point between Greenboro and South Keys for trains to transfer between. I was speculating earlier: I was thinking... despite the line not being double tracked, the airport train could continue to Bayview. It would make the switch after leaving the western platform at South Keys and head north, and cross over to the other track at the mid-point between South Keys and Greenboro. Obviously the passing tracks make it that the frequency would need to be carefully watched but the airport train could run right behind or as closely as possible to the
  3. If the link isn’t listed on the sites themselves I’ll re-add it tonight.
  4. Hi. The photo of the week gets chosen from those in the forum photo gallery. photos submitted there are up to be featured each week. I encourage you to share your pics there :)
  5. Is the platform for Walkley slightly curved or the track before or after?
  6. It must be an error. Otherwise service may suffer or the stopover at South Keys will be very short for the Airport train. The original plan was for the airport train to arrive at South Keys, continue out to the pocket track, wait for the mainline to Limebank to pass through South Keys, then reverse back out to South Keys and depart towards the Airport. Now there is no pocket track or crossovers. So to service the Airport line, the train must stop at the western South Keys platform for both directions. Actually looking at it more, the western platform only serves t
  7. The NCC delivered a presentation on the western STO expansion, specifically the crossing and entry into Ottawa. They prefer the Wellington surface option however they also do support the Sparks tunnel. You can find the presentation attached below.

  8. A simpler time back then. I would have loved to have experienced the Ottawa Streetcars back in the day. Still hopeful one day they make a return in some form, with 2 or so routes through downtown or the market.
  9. I think it may be Lyon as the walls are Yellow and Parliament's are Green. Nice pic!

  12. Hi @Antoine. Very interesting ideas in your latest map. As there has been some issue surrounding related topics recently, I would ask if you can re-post the map without the City of Ottawa logo appearing. Thank you for your understanding.

  15. Trillium Line Trench Widening Notice of Construction December 2020 As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Trillium Line South Extension Project, work has begun to prepare the trench between Highway 417 and Beech Street for rock excavation. Due to Ministry of Transportation requirements to protect the 417 structures in the area, crews are not able to use controlled detonations to break up the rock. Instead, they will weaken the rock by drilling int
