AMT blames CP for frequent train delays
"... 'Many switching errors' at Lucien L'Allier station. ..."

The Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) is fed up. It is blaming the constant tardiness on Canadian Pacific Railway’s poor track-maintenance planning, switching errors, signalling problems and communication lapses.

Although the bridge both is and will be a federal asset, it seems the region seriously risks again being deprived the necessary safe rapid transit ... BTW, the following today's hails from the corresponding federal minister's :PFFT: briefing to the city's board of trade ... screwed up priority, this over-riding partnership with that board is ... politicians' being in bed with big business again:
No extra cash for light rail on Champlain, feds say

I seem to remember the last action known about the rotting trains themselves was their being shipped out of that field No authority bought any of the trains. The track was lifted shortly after its five summers serving the fairground. A couple of station frames were left standing, one of which still serves as the entrance to the (now-smaller) fairground.
