ION - Waterloo Region's Light Rail Transit

(Yes, we have now confirmed it's Metrolinx equipment, so let's call a spade a spade.)

The 3 that were being worked on here should be complete by now. Of course, we probably won't know for sure until they make an appearance out on the line again.

It seems like an LRV has stalled at Northfield Station. As such, Northfield is backed up to Skylark.

That must be 511. It looks as if they're trying to work out some bugs in the new equipment today.

I doubt it was stalled, there's long periods of waiting around during the early portions of testing, and to the best of my knowledge this was it's first test day and it's the first vehicle to have all the communications and automated train protection gear installed so this would have been a whole new category of testing.

Regardless, if they were planning to park it there they should have had a signal tech out to ensure it wasn't causing a traffic blockage on Northfield, so that's still a failure of sorts.  :-(

Is that equipment you referred to the so-called Metrolinx equipment?
