  1. Na, it was a 50-50 shot based on past moves with the first car remaining the last car to be off loaded. Nice to see it was wrong. 2 more to be ship and will be done once 4458 is return with 4466 been ship the first week of June. Don't use Nextbus for tracking cars. Thanks for the update
  2. Maybe wrong, but looks like 4457 will be next to be off loaded after arriving May 4 in Lambton. 4452 racking a lot of time in Lambton since it arrival on March 23
  3. Saw this yesterday and not sure if it was in service or going to the garage after departing Hurontario Stop on Dundas St E going east. No large group of riders waiting for a bus after it departed. This bus die 2 minutes from my stop on Cawthra after waiting 15 minutes for it. The next one show up 30 minutes later at crush load and standing by the driver that it almost went close doors.
  4. 4454 has reenter service on 511 after being off loaded April 12
  5. This is an election year and MT budget saw the same thing like it has in the past that has no meat on it. With the lack of buses and low ridership and drivers, it best to use what is on hand for the most ridership routes. 100 has perform poorly from day one; 110 is a waste of resources south of UToM and 104 is not needed at all. 101 is not needed west of Erindale Station. Quality of service has been poor on a number of routes that you have 2-3 buses missing in a row at various times. Seen the first bus on Sunday on Route 3 show up 10 minutes late too many times. Route 3 is seeing a higher number of riders going into/out of Toronto since the first of the year. Construction on a number of routes doesn't help schedules or the riders as well lack of funds to put extra buses on those routes. Ridership on a number of routes have increases to the point you have peak load and crush load during off peak. Council has held back the last 4 years funding bus replacement while waiting for the Feds to fund them to the point buses fleet are below what what is needed for spares that is too low in the first place. At the end of the day, lack of riders has hurt every system in NA and their budgets. Mississauga is maintaining the $1 fare off peak while Brampton is free for those over 65.
  6. 4456 has been off loaded. Assume 4463 has taken 4456 spot on the flat
  7. My dates are the same as yours. I use https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html to put in the date the cars are loaded and off loaded to get X dates. Don't use the extra 1 day. Unless I used the wrong date for off loading or in Lambton for the wrong timeframe, but it looks like I haven't done updating for some time based on the current update for my errors. As for 4451, I sure miss that as I haven't been following it daily it like I normal due for the others for some reason. Never check that day as I was out of town. Its also the first car to reenter service under 20 days. TTC has to be at the bottom of CP moves to have cars pick-up and drop off at Hillcrest these days that range from 5-3x days. 8 days so far for 4462 to be pick-up.
  8. Thanks for the corrections as a few typo on my part. As for 4456 and 4457, based on CP deliveries these days is why I said end of May or earlier/later for being drop off at Hillcrest. 4456 is currently 54 days, 4457 is 34 days, 4458 is 30 days. 4456 has the best chance being back on TTC property this month. 4451 enter service on April 24 and late posting it 4452 is supposed to be at Hillcrest to be off loaded this week. It currently 108 days
  9. 4449 is off loaded and assumed 4462 has taken it place on the transporter. It was loaded on Dec 3 for shipping. 4452 will be the next one to be off loaded that has also been sitting in Lambton since March 16 like 4449. Based on CP moves, 4452 maybe off loaded next Tuesday. Next car to be off loaded will be at the end of May or so. 4 more cars to be ship.
  10. TTC has started to string KQQR intersection, Tracks are installed west of Sunnyside loop waiting for more roadbed to be pour as well rail before concrete can be pour to anchor them. TTC will be using the poles of the carhouse to help with the stringing of Sunnyside Loop.

  12. 4455 is showing been off loaded and assuming 4461 has taken it place. The tracker I had show it sitting at Hillcrest last Thurs as well the last few days. I took the sitting at Hillcrest with a gain of salt until TTC rider posting. The few times I been to the yard lately, haven't seen the cars

  14. Some way I was sure 4455 (76 days) was the next car to be off loaded Thurs, as it started tracking at Hillcrest and the other were no showing up at all. Will 4449 be the last to be off loaded considering it the longest car off site when it arrived and still is at 136 days??
  15. 4454 is now off loaded after being loaded Jan 19 (83 day) 4460 has taken 4454 spot on the flat. How fast will CP remove this flat and replace it with another this week??
