It is the beginning of evening rush hour, and
our train is fairly packed with passengers. Another train is
right behind us. Looking out the back window, one is somehow
reassured to note that when we stop for a station, car 080 slows
down and also stops, without ever getting any closer.
There are almost 300 cars in the SkyTrain fleet. The oldest
ones, such as pictured here, were manufactured by Urban
Transportation Development Corporation, which eventually became part
Bombardier, the company which delivered the next major generation of
vehicles. The coming of the Canada Line in 2009 saw the newest
cars arrive from South Korea, built by Rotem, a division of Hyundai.
