I chatted to an off-duty bus driver the evening of the day that I listened to the following radio broadcast, and his feedback was that drivers here seldom suffer violence and that today's newspaper news --passengers running, jaywalking for the bus-- is a major problem around the island:
Many questions in wake of bus accident

Actually, my memory serves me better than the STM's own archives serves them, for my recollection now clearly tells me that, when the reversing trains used the terminating platform of St-Michel station as the arrière gare from terminating at d'Iberville station, I rationalised that the ⅔-complete station was going to be fully completed upon the (eventual) inauguration of that station, yet the current state of St-Michel station still invalidates my assumption (back then) ... my recollection tells me that Parc and St-Michel stations were inaugurated the same day (the following year); if not, then it was the inauguration of Parc station that preceded that of St-Michel At any rate, I shan't be adjusting Chapitre 1.



Anyhow, today's :

The Mount Royal tunnel was a topic on yesterday morning's radio (somewhat going on about how the city's fire chief's come to
badgering the Amt), but not podcast, so I'm throwing in the following link instead:
"... Historical note: in 1946, two deadheading sleeping cars caught fire upon leaving Central Station,
resulting in 4 deaths. It took 10 hours for the firefighters to extinguish the fire – and no flammable
diesel was involved back then. ..."
