  1. My birthday cake of a 1989 MCI Classic on the 31, from Baskin Robbins which I specifically chose since I'm now 31, The ice cream inside is a special flavour called Love Potion #31 and this image on the cake was a big surprise for me!

  3. Probably, haven't seen them lately either. I saw Jean-Racine Presseur hauling off some old LFSes to scrap on Christmas Eve from the Hull garage and I think the first batch of 03s was against the fence. You'd have to enquire at the STO.

  7. They have been testing on some of the western-most part of the alignment. Not sure if it has progressed further though! Metrolinx posted this video in November 2020! As you can see, we are not talking full speed testing there. Eglinton Crosstown Vehicle Testing - EMSF to Keelesdale Station - YouTube

  8. As far as I am aware, Ottawa is the only one in the world fully grade separated. There are various networks that have them run on grade-separated for certain segments, but no-where near the scale of Ottawa with Stage 1 and Stage 2.

  10. This was a surprise, I had now idea what the image on the cake was going to be. My parents chose this one because they wanted to find one with route 31 on the destination sign and this was the only one they could find on the web.

  11. Very nice! IMO you should have gotten a D40 on it since it's as old as you! lol

  12. I definitely remember the old one behind Place d'Orleans from when I was young. Effective layout but at the same time, a bit out of the way compared to the current station adjacent to the highway. It makes sense now why it was moved but still interesting to think about and remember. I've parked in that area many times in the past and I guess over time I forgot the buses used to stop there.

  13. @Loud-InveroHey! After further digging, I actually found another abandoned Transitway Station, the old Place d'Orleans Terminus from the 90s. If you zoom in on GeoOttawa, you can even see the bus shelters and the Transitway signs.

  14. CDP for Brian Coburn near Mer Bleue, Frank Bender and Jeanne d'Arc, along the future Cumberland Transitway.

  15. Very interesting proposal. The Cumberland Transitway has long been discussed so it would be good to see that get built and put into use in the future to provide better connections for those living around Innes. What kind of residential development would it be? It seems to be a mix of new homes, plus low and medium density units. 4000-5200 residential units is quite a lot for an area that size. Will be interesting to see how it ultimately gets broken up. Lots of activity South of Innes these days, moving more and more to the west.

  16. I wish the zoning did not allow for such a tall building. It should have been capped at 4 floors. Alas, we can't go back in time. A modern version of the original hotel, that maintains turrets, dormers and a mansard roof but with more glass would have been great. I think Diamond and Schmitt could have pulled it off based on the NAC expansion. Or whoever did 1451 Wellington. Too bad Larco was dead-set on keeping the condo king architect.

  18. Additional funding has been earmarked for the new Central Library in order to make it a net-zero facility. The new funding will allow for: upgrades to the building’s envelope and insulation; triple-glazed windows; solar panels on the rooftop and embedded in the facade; additional sustainable materials; and an indoor green wall.

  20. Rail613 on Twitter shared some impressive and historic photos of the Alexandra Bridge, prior to 1965 when trains still crossed and streetcar tracks were still embedded on the side. https://churcher.crcml.org/candate/street.htm Approach to Nepean Point, straight ahead, before 1966 when the CPR used the Alexandra Bridge, left, to get to Hull and West from Union Station. At one time there were even commuter service trains to Wakefield and to Montebello.

  21. I’m really disappointed with the performance or should I say non performance or the system so far. I had high hopes and remained optimistic during the initial hiccups but it appears that RTM is incapable of making life better for commuters. It seems lots of people are losing faith and either taking a vehicle to work or car sharing. My daughter who works close to the Parliament station and lives in Barrhaven would be a great candidate for the train however she has a daycare deadline to meet and has to be on time for work. She just can’t rely on the service. She takes her SUV to work everyday an
