Some sweet new rides coming our way


Hot or not?

I've often wondered if the wind drag on the flat backs of the trains has any significant impact on fuel use when the trains are running "backward". In other words, does the westbound LSE from Oshawa to Union in the morning use more fuel than the eastbound Union to Oshawa in the evening, assuming the same passenger load? If so, these fancy new cab cars might save a few bucks for Metrolinx (which it will obviously not pass on to its riders)

Wi-fi? Will everyone wanting a signal be cramming into the cab car?

The eastbound LSE trains use more fuel, of course: they're going uphill most of the way!

^^that's right. It's actually a very big climb from Union to Scarborough in railroad sense.
