Where would the Georgetown South rail line go to?


"Georgetown South" alludes to the portion of the Georgetown line that would be shared with the Blue22 airport shuttle.

RailAmerica has no say, since they don't own the line.

I'm sure that CN on the other hand, wouldn't mind all that much.

Could be 2391 and 2392 or 2396 and 2397. Afterall, drivers aren't that reliable on sources. Let's see how accurate the info is starting next week when the 94 is suppose to be ran entirely by V Subs.

BTW, 2378 came today. At this rate of one per day, in around three week's time we'll see the hybrids since MCI seems to be delivering them in relatively good order unlike Orion's NGs! for TTC.

Want a 40ft HF capacity bus that's accessible? HAVE NO FEAR...
3 models still exist in North America:

RTS Legend

My understanding is that the hybrids are not included in the 44 buses due this year.

Ownership went something like Railink > RailAmerica > Fortress (who now owns GEXR).



Fortress owns RailAmerica but the still use the RailAmerica banner also they folder the FEC under RailAmerica control since Fortress bought them before buying RailAmerica

If you speak of 2394, then no I haven't saw it yet. ;) And I dont think there are many Orion V Suburbans, saying that I have seen less than 5 in my whole life, where as the D4500's I've saw MILLIONS. :unsure:

LRT will make Hamilton's economy GROW, and the downtown SOAR.

Saw a movie clip with what seems to be, not one, but 2 GO Transit Fishbowls.

I IMDB'd the movie and it appears to have been entirely filmed in New York in 2000 or so. Who owns these buses? Are they even authentic GO Transit buses?

Lucky you.... But there are more than 5 V Subs.

And Orion V was asking about whether the 94 Oshawa Hwy2 route was running exclusively with V Subs, as was apparently going to happen this week.

Heard there are two of then that owns in NJ.
More and more transit system are sticking to LF because of economical issues! Where as HF, it will be a rare to see in much future times!

As of April 2009, I have finally rode Nova Classic T-drive, two types of different engine! Which ones is better? Series 50 all the way man!

2011 Charter: Able to manage to attend as there are some good ones to go for!

Those definitely have to be ex-GO Transit fishbowls. The paint scheme is spot on with their old style, and, well, they still have the Flag of Ontario on them (although, I think, this movie doesn't take place in Canada but California?). Awesome find!

EDIT: According to the IMCDB (Internet Movie Car Database), these have been identified as 1975 New Look 5307As. Therefore, they are from GO Transit's 1045-1049 and/or 1050-1056 fleet.

In other words, strictly used for the C and Bayview routes back then.

Just saw 2366 on 94 on a Sunday which means obviously the V Sub dominance on 94 hasn't started yet. ;)

They've 'apparently' been confirmed as 1975 New Looks on that IMCDB website. Would be nice to have a DVD of the movie and get a better look. ;)

It would make more sense to put them on that route since they are well suited for routes like that, except they dont have rear doors. Doesnt make much sense having them on the 407 or Unionville corridor.
