It should have arrived today if it was in Belleville Tuesday.

Saw this "poster" today by King and university. Apparently whomever posts these now have LRT in their sights.

It's not in the Lancaster yard that I can see.

I can never remember - is the 4-times-a-week train that goes up the spur Monday-Thursday, or Tuesday-Friday? I'm just wondering if it's the former, and 506 arrives tomorrow, it'll sit in Lancaster all weekend.

(i mean, it'll either sit there or up at Randal...)

...Hence the hole in the dash.

It seems that there is plenty of blame to go around, no need to stop at Bombardier.

Of course, if you are planning to sue Bombardier, you really don't want to assign blame to anyone else.

A nice shiny picture of 503 gets pride of place in this Railway Age article (PDF) about transit P3s in Canada.

Followed the website, and it looks like they are selling books.  Maybe the Region should go after them for using their trademarked graphics and logos for a non-authorized commercial entity.

Wow someone actually went to that site? I've seen posters like this around for years and figured it was a consiracy theory nut and not someone selling books. If that's the case, it's not only the region that would have a case. Seen lots of others with copywrited materls over the past few years.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another one pop-up at King and John. Lots of fresh spray paint across the road and rapidway all of the sudden.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Spotted a tent on Borden near Nygard yesterday too.

Yeah, that one has been up for a few weeks now, (that's where I usually slip onto the Iron Horse Trail).

I haven't seen 506 yet at Lancaster (not saying it isn't there - just that I can't see it if it is).

That could have been a good comic if they dropped the snark and stuck to the initial comparison.
