It's quite ironic that the LIM motors that were so much better than rotary motors of the time especially on hills! The exact opposite is now true, LIM Motors are less powerful and more expensive than there easily replaceable "can" type rotary motor models on modern LRV's today! This is a problem that Translink in the lower mainland of BC is having to explaining away the huge increases in the cost of maintenance for the Skytrain System especially now, as the original Expo Line ages past 30. The newer generation of cars although better than the original Mark 1 Skytrain Cars, are still very expensive to maintain compared to LRV's.
