    A showroom full of ridiculous cars is kind of the opposite of gravitas, isn't it?

    Forgive me if I asked this before, but is anything going to happen to the nasty, nasty Via concourse?

    Typically, Critique, a critique involves elements of critique. As opposed to, say, "I don't like it."

    This thing is less out-and-out bizarre than it was in its original incarnation, but now it's just... incoherent and weird. What's going on with the stepped tower? What is that? A ship's funnel? There is something hellish about the scale of these things, couples with their isolation from the...

    I was amazed at how solidly it was built, for a temporary stairway - rebar and everything. It made me wonder if it was really permanent or not. (Assuming we're talking about the same stairs - from the subway station into the old GO concourse.)

    Stick around for a bit, pstogios, and you'll get a sense of why he's worth listening to.

    PATH Network Expansion (various, various, various)

    It would be fun to take WislaHD's base map and use it to create a full catalogue of the semi-disjointed PATH networks in the core. (Not just Yonge/Bloor, but the ones hanging off Bay, too.)

    Anecdotally, I fly Porter at least twice a month to places as different as New York City and Sault Ste. Marie. Been a while since I've been on one that wasn't packed full.

    You know what a great accessory for a new streetcar barn would be? Streetcars.

    I hate to agree, but I agree. Once you're beneath the new roof, it seems so... diminutive. Almost constrained.

    The conversations I've had with guys at the carhouse during open houses, etc, suggest that the CLRVs and ALRVs are almost completely unloved by drivers, at least, and possibly the maintenance folks. Does that hold true to your experience?
