2002/2003 SD-160 (C-Train)
2216-2232

In 2003, Calgary Transit took delivery of 17 SD160 cars. These cars went into service very quickly and ran free of any major problems like those experienced from the previous order. This was due to the experience CT had with the SD160 that they didn't have when the first order came in. The only exception was #2232 which was delivered in 2004 and put into service nearly half a year after itís delivery. These cars are identical to the cars from the previous orders. Although there is one minor difference, the placement of the door open buttons has been moved to the door instead of the handhold near the centre of the car's width like the previous order. However the first order of cars has had the door buttons moved to the door. Starting in late 2009, some of these units were retrofitted with air conditioning, this project was completed on all SD160 cars by early 2011. This retrofit is clearly visible on the roof of the SD160 cars. Starting in late 2009, several cars had roofline upgrades retrofitted to modernize the look of the cars, this is an ongoing project as of mid 2011.
