Muahahaha!!! Actually I very scared of touching that hole one. Once I was seated there, and I need to scratch my groin coz it was feeling ichy. I kind of wondered if the driver could see it.

Anyway, maybe tts why I prefer to sit on the left too.

Mind reproducing for us. Me using dial up it will take forever. Thanks.

Well renderings have shown that it will be a tram based system not an LRT. And I don't think an LRT system applies here cause One North is more like a small community rather than your typical large housing estate.

When you sit on the right and scratch your groin, chances are the female bus driver is happily watching away........

Hmmm....its a swf file, or was it pdf? So troublesome to convert to jpg and host. Will do when i have the time lah.

Actually do they really differentiate between LRTs and PMSs? In some way..even the cicle line might end up being classified as a PMS!

Aiyo you so open talking about scratching groins in public ah...hahaha...

Hard picturing that behind the people we see on the streets everyday are people who go to the toilet etc etc etc.

In my fantasy world, no one goes to the toilet, everyone is fully dressed. haha... this is getting out of point.

Okay when you do have time host it. Thanks so much.

Yeah there's pretty much no distinction.

The only reason why I separated them into two threads was because the Singapore's MRT & LRT thread focuses more on the rail transport projects by the LTA while this thread focuses more on other systems not by the LTA but by various organisations such as Sentosa, Jurong Bird Park, JTC & CAAS.

Also, MRT & LRT are terms given by the LTA to call their systems. You can say technically that the Changi Airport Skytrain is a LRT but generally people in Singapore perceive LRT to that in Sengkang, not at Changi Airport.

Since there's no general name for systems that are developed by private organisations, its generally just called Other People Mover Systems. Like if there were no name for MRT & LRT I would have called them PMS too.

Remember this paint job when they first introduced the aircon double decks and called them the "superbus"?

Ok...I wonder how many people I shocked every time I pee at a public toilet like those in coffee shops when fully geared up!

Come to think of it, you reminded me of how I once related seeing a soldier peeing at the national stadium, and I regretted not snapping a picture of it...hahaah! Quite funny seeing a rather well-built fella doing his most vulnerable thing!

For those who are interested, SBS Transit issued a set of 2 1:76 die cast models of the buses. One with the old Superbus red and white livery and the other with the new SBS Transit livery. Costs $98/set.
