Had a quick chat with one of the motormen and he mentioned that it's unlikely there's any work on extending the line to Whyte anytime soon, & something about the hold up is that there's some conflicts over a segment of province owned land. Anyone? I would hope they can have the extension opened for the 2020 season. Lets get on with it, they got their DP back in May!

That's awesome news! I hope the ERS has the funding or receives some more to increase the capacity of the line also. There's one passing loop and a 2nd terminal at the Jasper Ave station, but I'm not sure if this would be enough for the increased service capacity later on. From what I understand ERRS had 2 streetcars for the line (they had three but streetcar 601 was shipped back to Hannover, Germany) and I hope they can order at least 1 more to ensure that the capacity is there. Who knows what other expansions will happen down the line... ;)
