Trains: coming and going
Various entities are beginning to make plans to move people between downtown and the West Island (and beyond) during the reconstruction of the Turcot, although there’s some odd newspeak here about the relationship of the plans to the Train de l’Ouest project – it’s not the same thing, but it’s sort of part of the same thing, maybe.
The same writer also has a piece about how full electrification of the commuter train system is completely blocked, for the moment. Andy Riga also covers the story of how AMT bought $308 million worth of dual-mode locomotives only to find out the tracks won’t be electrified after all. Riga also looks at the contentious issue of upgrading the Mount Royal tunnel.
