    Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    4499 could be in service by Friday or sooner. 4500 could see service come Monday Unless a car or two show up by Friday, the testers will have some free time on their hands next week. Starting next week and until the end of the year is going to be the real test to see if all shipping schedule and in service will be met for the year.

    Nope. It was set up for bus drivers to announce the next stop before the AA system was install and deal with the accessibility requirement by the city. Since spare drivers would show up on different routes, they couldn't remember all stops for all of them and this was one way to deal with it. Only good during the daylight.

    GO Transit

    You can get shots and video of the detour to/from the Canpa Sub about 5 minutes after the hour from the Kipling overpass. I miss getting an eastbound VIA Rail train as it was about 10 minutes behind the GO train and not sure if there was an westbound behind the westbound GO train after 10 am since the eastbound moved to track 1, with track 2 open. The CP train would move to track 1 after the GO train pass it.

    4500 is westbound on King St W at John St doing its first test run. Now lets get it up on Queen On Sunday when the PCC is out. Saw no Flexity on Queen, but saw 4002 & 4 4473 needs a visit to the body shop based on the posting above sine I wasn't sure if it was that car. Saw an eastbound King car out of service at Spadina and no thoughts of taking a photos since I have a number of them for this car. As It cross Spadina, had to do a quick shot as it hit something and missing parts. Got one shot as a cycles kill the other shot

    I watch it leave the yard after seeing it was tracking. Lets see if they can get it into service in the 10-12 day time frame. It will be interesting to see which PCC is out for service on Sunday. If they can get 4500 ready in time, maybe we will see 2 4500 on the system at the same time.

    TTC invites you on a sentimental streetcar journey September 20, 2018 This Sunday, the TTC recognizes the 80th anniversary of the PCC streetcar in Toronto by taking one of its two vintage Red Rocket streetcars out for a ceremonial ride downtown. PCC streetcars first entered service in the city on September 23, 1938. The PCC fleet, more than 740 strong at its peak, was one of the largest in North America and did a venerable job of serving millions of daily transit riders over generations. The last PCC cars were retired from TTC service in 1995. Rides on the vintage streetcar will be free of charge on Sunday. PCC stands for Presidents' Conference Committee. What: Vintage PCC #4549 will be taking a ceremonial journey downtown Toronto, fare-free. Where: Serving stops along Queen Street, between Bathurst Street and Church Street. When: Sunday, September 23, 2018 from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Why: The TTC is providing an opportunity for the public to take a trip back in time, take photos and celebrate 80 years since the first PCC streetcar entered in service in Toronto.

    Wier that 4500 is tracking now as a Russell car, as it wasn't when I posted a few hours ago. More so, it is a head of 4499 that arrived on the 14th that still not tracking and just arrived 2 days ago. Was surprised to see 4497 back in the service bay after one day of service, with its GPS being all over the place since then.
