    Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    4520 just left the yard as 504 (BRBS) in service after 17 days being and ahead of 4519. It and the other 2 cars have being having issues with the GPS this week. 4519 has some issues to keep it from going into service last week and it GPS has been all over the place since then more than showing it in the service bay. No new cars have been off loaded this week so far, with 2 in CP yard and one in route.

    Some hours after I post the info, 4519 took a trip to Broadview station and enter the service bay upon arrival back at the yard. Haven't seen this before. All 3 cars currently in the service bay.

    It was at Bathurst loop a short time ago and now on St Clair. Looks like Monday or sometime next week it will see service. It been here 15 days so far. 4521 was out for a short trip Thursday as well 4520. No idea what up with 4572, other it looks like it been in the same location in the service bay since its last trip to the yard on the weekend. Been here 25 days so far. I guess we will see 457? here around Jan 21 or about.

    Mountain Line (Flagstaff, Arizona)

    Thanks. Not sure when we will arrive, as we will be coming from doing the Grand Canyon first. Plan on spending the night in Willams before doing the Canyon the next day and then stopping in Flagstaff for the night. I have already check the schedule and to be on the safe side asking questions before hand on small systems. Want to shoot the Amtrak, but too late at night to catch it. Want to get some rail fan shots on our trip as well. Most small systems have 60 plus service on the weekend that I have visited over the years to the point no Sunday service. Other than our being day and end day of our trip, everything is not set in stone that we can either add a day or drop a day to our stops. Phoenix, Tucson, El Paso and one other place are 3 days stay at each place at this time.

    Look at visiting the city in March on the weekend and how often do they run on Sat? Will shot photos at the downtown terminal based on the 60 minutes for weekend by a lot of systems. Are the artics out on the weekends? Will move on to Phoenix, Tucson and El Paso.

    4518 has enter service on 504A after being here 14 days. 4519/20 Just return to the yard after being out all night testing. This maybe the last test run for 4519 and it could enter service on Friday.

    If Thunder Bay could do 62 in 2018, let them do the same amount in 2019 and take pressure off Kingston for trying to do 3 per month for TTC, since they have yet to do 2 per month so far. What other work is on hand for Thunder Bay team doing TTC cars, other than a pink slip if only 48 are to be done this year?? Still waiting to see if the extra 60 cars are in the 2019 budget as well getting council to approve it. Then there is the extra cars in place of cash payment, but how many?? Those cars will be 2020/21 delivery. 4572 spent the night in the yard and back in the service bay. 4520 was out all night testing as well.

    Math said Thunder Bay 62 vs Kingston 20, still leaving Kingston doing 2 a month. I'm sure BBD has done the numbers and made the decision what is going to take place to make sure all TTC cars are here by Dec 31/19. We may know on Thursday what BBD is going to do at TTC meeting. Last days for delivery in Dec are 23, 24, 30 & 31. For Kingston to meet Edmonton, Metrolinx and TTC 2019 deliveries, needs to push 2 cars a week out the doors for a total of 104 cars Hard to say for sure, looks like 4572 could enter service Tuesday, as it sitting on track 13 in the yard. Almost the same spot Sunday before it went back into the service bay Monday.

    Another Kingston car is to be ship shortly and looks like its going to be a car per month at this time. Going to miss 2019 schedule if Kingston can't get up to 2 cars plus per month for 2019.

    Saw 0884 on Derry Rd yesterday in service Welcome to the third and final phase of Mississauga Moves! This phase officially runs from Wednesday, January 9 until Monday, February 4, 2019. During this phase, we will be inviting feedback from the community on the Draft Transportation Master Plan. This is your chance to let us know if we captured what we heard in Phases 1 and 2. Feedback on the draft Plan will be collected in the following ways: 1. Open House (Tuesday, January 29, 3:00 – 8:00pm, Great Hall at Civic Centre) and Drop-in Centre – Similar to the open house that kicked off the project, there will be a number of stations outlining the highlights of the Draft Plan and featuring interactive display boards. The event will be drop-in format with team members on hand to answer questions. Materials will also remain displayed in the Great Hall until February 3 for residents to review on a self-directed basis during regular building hours. 2. Online Survey (January 9 – February 4) – Similar to Phases 1 and 2, an online survey will be posted to the Mississauga Moves website to collect feedback on the Draft Plan. Following this final phase of engagement, the project team will review the feedback and revise the Draft Transportation Master Plan where appropriate. The final version will be presented to General Committee of Council in the spring. Thank you again for dedicating your time and energy to this project. We hope to see you soon! - The Mississauga Moves Team
