B8028 New Text Document.txt
--- In Transit-Vancouver@yahoogroups.com, Ba See Lo
A little birdie told me that B8028 has been retrofitted with a
brake-pedal-activated retarder, as opposed to the standard
power-pedal-activated retarder. The original Allison B400-R/B500-R
hydraulic retarder had an inherent lag, causing excessive brake wear
before the retarder even had a chance to slow the coach down.
Not sure exactly what was done to the retarde...
bcer British Columbia Electric Railway
British Columbia Electric Railway (BCER)
Transit in B.C.s three major urban areas (Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster) was
introduced by companies other than the BCER. These companies eventually merged to
form the Consolidated Railway & Light Co. But a tragic event in 1896 ensured that
Consolidated Railway would not operate the province's transit. A river bridge in Victoria
collapsed, killing 55 people. Although an inquiry would later put blame on t...
Comparison of Modes
Adding up to a cleaner environment
Transit Exchange, July/Aug. 1998
Both trolleys and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses play their part in reducing pollution in the Greater Vancouver region. Along with diesel buses, they make up most of the BC Transit fleet. How do trolleys and CNG buses rate pollution wise? And how does each of these technologies compare in cost? After covering diesel buses in the February issue of Transit Exchange, we now tackle the rest of the fleet.
Trolley buses: in ...

Mayors resisting TransLink reform
By Jeff Nagel Jun 15 2007
A number of regional politicians are vowing to fight transportation minister Kevin Falconís radical remake of TransLink every step of the way.
Since the required legislation didnít pass the Legislature this spring, they will start by refusing to join the transportation ministerís plan to get an early start on work to select a new, unelected professional board of directors.
Falcon says the reforms will go ahead, with or ...

wac W.A.C. Bennett & B.C.E
One aspect of the story of the B.C.E. which has puzzled me is this:
It was the Socred government of W.A.C. Bennett that nationalized the B.C. Power Corporation, parent
of the B.C.E. But, the Socreds as they became in the time I've lived in the province were right wing, free
enterprise oriented. What would make them want to expropriate a private corporation?

In researching this note, I've come to realize that W.A.C. Bennett cannot ...
