after many years of service the CLRV’s and ALRV’s that have run through the streets of Toronto will soon be making way for the new streetcars a version of the Bombardier Flexity Outlook. After a few delays from Bombardier including strikes and trouble receiving parts it looks liked things should be on track to receiving more of them. Currently there are 6 of them in Toronto with only four in revenue service. The four in service are car numbers 4400, 4403, 4404, and 4405. 4401, and 4402 are on site but are not ready for service yet and are being used for training as well as for testing upgrades that they are making, eventually they will be sent back to Bombardier to have an issue with the ramp fixed so they can go it to service. Hopefully by the end of the year we should have 30 of them in service on the 510 spadina, the 509 harbourfront route and the 511 bathurst route. As they have comer into service I have tried my best to get video and pictures of them you can view them at the links below if you like.
So there are some things I don’t get about this whole thing. One why does Disney have to make Star Wars movies now is it because all of there other Science Fiction movies have failed so they want to cash in on an existing franchise. Another thing why is everyone all over this J.J>. Abrams guy as being a great director, I never watched Lost so don’t know what he was like on that but I personally think he ruined the new Star Trek movies and Disney is heading that way with the new Star Wars ones. Another thing I don’t get is why does Disney have to add a Star Wars land to the Disney’s Hollywood Studios park in Walt Disney World. About the only time they have long lines for Star Wars stuff is during Star Wars weekends which are only in June, pretty much the rest of the time you can just walk on to Star Tours. Personally I am more excited to see what they do with Avatrland in Disney’s Animal Kingdom rather then see them ruin Star Wars they way Paramount ruined Star Trek.
Doors open weekend has come to an end I had some fun visiting some new and some old places. If anyone is reading this you can check out all my Doors Open Toronto pictures and videos at the links below.
What a great win on survivor for a well deserving player. He should be honored to be up there with the greats of survivor. H played a game like the Boston Rob did in his winning season.
Survivor seems to be getting interesting now. I’m hoping that Cochran can pull of the win this season.
