    I guess 4402-8 would be good candidates to be first ship to Quebec for welding, especially 4408. Taking these cars out of service will help to reduce the mileage on these cars to bring it down to other cars since they have spent more time on the road due poor delivery of the fleet. We should see 4500 in Sept, since there is still 12 cars to come for 3rd Q. I don't expect 4001 back until early 2019, based on past track record for 4400 & 4402 rebuilt. I am assuming all cars will interchange with CN in Montreal so CN can delivery them to the plant in Quebec. Some what surprise as to time frame to get cars from point to point.

    Those are either cars in testing or going into service on other lines. Mostly test cars. Does anyone know if 4490 arrived at Hillcrest and been off loaded? 4491 should be here next week.

    There is a major issue with the GPS, especially for 4483. It goes from an arrow to a dot back and forth as it travels westbound on King. The GPS has the car in one place and then its a few blocks back where it was early and then jumps ahead of where it is and then back where it was a few seconds ago, then to where it really is. It even disappear from time to time. Anyone around King should keep an eye open for this car to see if its in testing or in service as an 504. Never know you may find 4485 there as well.

    Until yesterday and today, I have never seen a problem with the trackers as for location and route number. This includes having vehicles where TTC has no track or out in lake Ontario or in the 905. I have check various routes and cars before leaving home to catch them where they were supposed to be in action and have see them there. 4485 is now in service on Finch westbound as route 36. It shows up under buses on route 36. 4483 is westbound on Queen west of Broadview as route 7

    4483-4489 at the Barns and service bays except 4485 thats on the inbound track operating on route 36 4485 return to the yard early last night after been seen out on the Queensway as a 29 and will say it was in testing yesterday, not service. 4483 is tracking as on route 7 while in the service bay 4487 was out in Long Branch last night as a 301. After checking a number of other cars, all showing up on various routes with the correct route number. 4479 is on 512 as an 89 bus, 4472 on 510 as route 59, 4469 on the service track in the yard on route 86, 4466 at Union loop on route 45, 4467 on King St as route 145, 4470 on King on route 79 and haven't check all car.

    Not close to them, but 4483 was ready for service this morning since it was on the storage track where in service cars are store as a dot only. 4483 has been here 21 days and time frame for cars to go into service when they have issues. 4485 has been here 15 days and about the time frame when cars go into service that have no issues these days. Since 4485 is showing up on Dufferin now southbound, its a question car for in service as well route. 4483 is still on 509 and safe to say it enter service on it today. There is one person who can really tell us if cars have enter service and which route and they haven't posted yet.

    I am assuming this will apply to GO Transit as well Transport Canada to make seatbelts mandatory on new highway buses by 2020

    4487 doing its first test run. Its westbound on Queen and most likely heading to Long Branch, since it west of Bathurst. Been here 13 days already

    Just noticed it and was going to post it, but you beat me to it. 4485 is doing Humber to Long Branch for testing at this time and is in the Hunber Loop to go Westbound. Best to get all cars tested and in service before the next wave start showing up. Not sure which staff should have time off, but they will get time off when they are schedule to have time off. You still got 5 to be tested and in service to help deal with the current fleet as well the lost of a car or 5 for 19 weeks. I haven't included 4483 in that number, since it should see service any day, if there is no more problem with it.
