  1. I don’t remember exactly which ones but I believe the last few were taken off the road 2002 December or January 2021, Or very shortly after. I remember in the end there was only a handful on the final days. They were not retired in large numbers or all at once but little by little. what I do remember is the final one on the road retired due to the fuel pump dying.
  2. The first REM vehicles have arrived in Montreal. https://rem.info/en/news/first-cars-arrival I invite you to check out the link, which features pictures from its arrival at the port in New Jersey, all the way to Montreal and the REM facility. Very impressive, and great initiative for them to show this level of detail.
  3. Today at Transit Commission we received an update on the wheel cracks. Already 5 trains have had their wheels replaced. There was clarification as it was previously stated that all trains would have their wheels replaced but it has now been explained that some trains are not affected as there are some differences in the screws (at the root of the problem) that amount to some trains not needing any replacement. I didn't quite understand the difference and I don't think they gave a breakdown in fleet numbers as to how many in the end are actually affected. Bottom line, they are on it a
  4. Thanks J.OT13, the move went well (other than the unplanned setbacks, but going much better now).

    I have been going through that area daily for the past 2-3 weeks and the eastbound seems to be more advanced in work than the westbound, but the curve and angle of the road makes the westbound harder to see. It will make for quite a large space for the station and guideway to be located... something I am eager to see. On a sidenote, the work taking place on the flyover outside of Blair to the median is really starting to advance nicely. The road shift is a bit rough at spots and I hit a pothole just before Blair as it shifted back in the left westbound lane. Happy to say the hole has
  6. Thanks for sharing this. The detail is still relatively limited in comparison to what is available in Ottawa and Montreal, so the map will be excluded for the Toronto Subway and the Vancouver SkyTrain station pages, as they are not consistently available or of a high enough quality to be worth including.
  7. Thanks for alerting me to this. I’ll aim to fox this as soon as I have some time. Been a busy couple weeks with us moving.
  8. I’ve noticed on some recent videos that the motor sound when departing stations has changed. It seems to now be more linear rather than the original “1st to 2nd gear” sound in the initial 5 seconds. When did this change? Also noticed that the directional announcement in French has been modified (streamlined slightly), but the English remains unchanged.
  9. Just went through there by car and it doesn’t appear quite ready for the shift. There is still a bit of difference in ashphalt height between the existing road and the temporary road so will be interesting to see how fast they can get this ready if it’s supposed to happen in the next 2 days.
  10. Hi. I replied to you by private message. Best to send them in by emails.
  11. No unfortunately it is still loading it from the original link or site. So if it is taken down in the future it will stop loading here. Ideally you can save the image and post it here if it is worth keeping. But yeah, just posting the link still loads it from the origin so that`s dependent on it staying up there.
