It's certainly more than one poster. And I have brought up a city with catenary. It's subway was down for a week.I've seen one person in this thread make such a claim, and that claim was rebuked almost immediately.
So how does bringing it up again two days later help anything?
And if you're going to bring it up, you may also bring up while you're at it that there's lots of cities which get lots of snow and ice that use overhead catenary.
Oh I see now. Yes sorry I didn't mean "winter cities", although I wrote that. I meant to say cities with winter (ice, snow, minus 0 temps). Apologies for my phrasing. I guess I can't name any genuine "winter cities" - arctic, sub-arctic, alpine - with subway systems.That's all well and good, but you also felt compelled to point out that they were "winter cities". Which is as wrong as it is irrelevant. I might as well point to most European cities and say that you can probably get away with never buying a shovel in those places, given how infrequently it snows there, and therefore the same must be true of Toronto.
I really don't know what your angle is here. If you dislike catenary so much, don't look up when you're near a guideway and it will have no involvement in your life. There's no need to discredit it by acting like cities that use it are brought to their knees every time it snows.
My stance is clear: I support third rail when it's optimal. And it's very much optimal with a line like this.
