Beautiful!!

Great moon shot.  I love the big crater on the 3 o'clock position roughly.  My perspective from the great white north is that is it typically in the 7 o'clock position.  Cool how that perspective changes depending on where you are on the planet.

Amazing lets replace something that works and has an excellent track record with newer more expensive stuff that doesn't work. LOL

 

To be honest I am sure the maintenance on the older ones is also extensive and parts are probably hard to come by.

Thanks, everyone.  

Bill, Yes, the TTC logo is a cool one, still stands the test of time.

Jim,

I know, right?!  The new streetcars are a nightmare.  The company making them is a joke.  It has been plagued with issues from the beginning of the contract. Most notably, non-delivery.  They almost had the contract pulled out from under them.

We are also going to a Presto Card payment system.  This hasn't worked from the start either.  I think the TTC has lost half a million dollars on uncollected fairs since inception.  Overall, I think our transit system is a joke and a money pig.  But, try telling that to anyone in Toronto who will listen.  This is such a stupid city.
