Actually, it is surprising. How the bloody hell did they wait so long and suddenly bail at the last minute!? I would've thought the cars have already been shipped to Lagos and about to enter service. So much cheaper too than the crap they'll end up getting <_<

Count to ten.

Cilla Black, host of "Blind Date" and "Surprise Surprise", has died at the age of 72.

She was also a hit singer in the 60s who used to tour and open for the Beatles. She was a coat check girl at the Cavern Club where they used to play. RIP :(

I caught a glimpse of one going eastbound on Sheppard at Leslie. Didn't get the digits.

Not at all. It's very ignorant, especially him asserting things which he knows are not true. a) they were not "all pretty much the same, except their color scheme". While they did all have the same design elements (which is the only reason the TR's seem like such an extreme departure from the traditional design, and thus so overrated), they were also very different, and had very unique color schemes, so denouncing them like that is extremely narrow-minded and arrogant. B) the TR's aren't special or "unbelievable", they're just boring (including being quieter). Really, it's pathetic how the public looks upontransit enthusiasts, yet wants to control every aspect of the transit system and selfishly denounce the things enthusiasts like. They demand modern vehicles for comfort, yet they also want to have some 'vintage' vehicles, but when it comes to something like an Orion V or an H5, they just want those things gone.

He sounds just like someone with casual knowledge of the TTC. Not that big a deal.
