Numerous lines of MR-90 cars (surely the entire fleet) are stored at the Pointe-Saint-Charles Maintenance Centre, their service no longer needed and their continued existence very much in doubt. At far left can be seen the reason for their retirement, with REM construction ongoing here, as well as on the Deux-Montagnes line, where these cars were used until the entire line shut down at the end of 2020. Most of these cars had to be trucked from Deux-Montagnes to Saint-Jérôme, where they were put back on rails and brought here by F59PHI-led trains. The controversial REM project is a light rail line that will serve the Montreal area with grade-separated, driverless trains.

  1. Would love to see them repurposed on another line (freshly electrified) but I suspect I’m being optimistic. They’re getting old by railway standards; Exo would probably just buy fresh.
