I just got word yesterday that Raymond Bachant, the president for North America Bombardier Transportation, will be giving a talk tomorrow at noon!
It's exciting for me to imagine the same sort of fervour people usually have for new cars and pick up trucks, applied to trains and trolleys.
And this, quoted from the notice I received:
"With hundreds of vehicles now being manufactured in our country, Bombardier is set to deliver the next generation of streetcars, subway cars, light rail vehicles and commuter trains that are the backbone of rail based public transit system in major Canadian cities."
If I didn't have a physio appointment I absolutely cannot miss (oh chronic back pain from motor vehicle collision, how I detest you), I would be there. Perhaps one of Mr. Bachant's talks can be found online somewhere...
If any of you readers happen to attend, please drop me a line in the comments to let me know how it was!
