    Orangeville-Brampton Railway (OBRY)

    Occasionally as transit lines (Los Angeles’ E/Expo Line is an example), but not as general traffic railways. The one that might return is the Lackawanna Cutoff in New Jersey if the NYC-Scranton train gets built, but that’s only a proposal.

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    Yep. BT’s issue was having enough operators and buses, rather than having enough money to meet demand. It’s nice to see them implementing improvements as soon as they’re able to do so.

    Orangeville-Brampton Railway (OBRY)

    July 13. The signals are now unlit. The diamonds remain next to the former crossing.

    Don’t you know that YOU caused the credit crunch?

    Hudson's Bay Company

    Even Sears Canada in its late-era decline after 2010 didn’t close stores early in the evening, turn off escalators and elevators, and shut stores down over HVAC issues. HBC is rotten, and at this point, it’s hard to see it recovering at all.

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    I wouldn’t attribute it to partisan politics but in 2014, the subsidy for the ACR was cut by the Harper-led Conservative government.

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    I think Ontario Northland would do better expanding bus service, including adding a second daily run between Sudbury, North Bay, and Ottawa. Forget rail.

    Intercity Bus Services

    Yes, it’s Lindsay. After that, the largest towns without rail or bus service at least three days a week include Hawkesbury, Caledonia, Dunnville, and Petrolia. Bruce and Huron Counties are poorly served, especially with growing populations in Port Elgin/Southampton and Kincardine due to Bruce...

    Orangeville-Brampton Railway (OBRY)

    It’s a yard for watermain construction on Queen Street. Nothing to do with the OBRY.

    Nope, it already exists. https://seanmarshall.ca/2024/06/24/a-bus-to-st-thomas-finally/

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    You could only go in as far as the east end of Schumacher, because Highway 101 uses the ONR alignment through there. There’s no chance that 101 would be moved or narrowed to allow the track to be put back. And there’s a hourly local transit bus to Porcupine, it stops one block away from the...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    It was strange seeing Niagara-on-the-Lake there, as GO cancelled Route 11 several years ago. Also the Science Centre Presto perk.

    Mississauga Toronto | Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    It’s pretty clear that Mobilinx has control of the entire right-of-way and will be responsible for restoring the roadway at the end of the project. Mississauga has pretty much nothing to do with it, and you can even tell by the new traffic signals being installed. All new City of Mississauga...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    The 50th anniversary wrap isn’t bad! There really needs to be a few vintage pink BT buses ahead of its 50 year anniversary in 2026.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Canadian Highway Fantasy Thread

    The best part about Breezewood is the nearby Ray’s Hill Tunnel, part of the abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike. The best comparison to Breezewood in Ontario would be the RIRO sections of 35/115 and 11 that prevent a proper upgrade to 400-series standard that both routes merit.
