    Toronto Pearson International Airport

    Was at LGW recently and most gates were not working, they appeared pretty tempermental

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Except running tram trains every 3-4 minutes under CBTC on such a tight alignment and with high top speeds is indeed quite unconventional

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Paint does not work in the cold?

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The issue here is more to do with the terrible waterproofing on the TYSSE, there are crazy icicles which form in winter!

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    The "LRT" in Calgary and Edmonton that currently operate look basically nothing like what we have built in TO

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    A subway has a lot more potential travel time benefits than LRT (at least the way we are building them), so obviously its more attractive/.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I really think some colossally bad planning decisions were made with this line, but its still going to be great to see it open. It's going to be miles better than the bus, and maybe it will light a fire under the TTC to do some stuff it should have already been doing with the streetcars.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    I think the hard part is less the tunnel itself, but the connections to existing infrastructure

    GO Transit Fleet Equipment and other

    To be fair Mlinx wants to run shorter consists and that's kind of the point of the order, so long trains are probably less a concern. Well, it helps that Metrolinx is putting way less infill stations in than they probably should.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    LRT to Sherway?! When there is a mostly available above ground row which could be used to logically extend the subway ? Why would we build a crappy shuttle and force people to transfer, plus you have another fleet disconnected fleet etc

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    Hilariously it's still not even open? So the announcement is just that they haven't scrapped the idea. Not like anyone will use it! /s

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    It doesn't need to be a "complete" rebuild. Just raise the tracks and move the doors. As others mentioned Mlinx already has said it wants to move the services at Union, even if our lack of foresight is incredibly annoying

    Toronto | Crosstown Line 5 West Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I don't like this proposal, but clearly digging a deep unnecessary tunnel is not "physics bending" . . . .

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    30m to Bramalea should especially be doable given the low UP frequencies rn, but given the layout of the tracks on GTS right now are there actually passing loops for trains to operate every 30? You can't quite make it to Bramalea in time otherwise, and clearly the 4th platform hasn't started at...
