    TTC Delays and Disruptions

    Overhead down on King eastbound at Atlantic. Happened about 5pm.

    Interesting development.

    Speaking of damaged cars, what's the deal with 4486? It suffered damage in that incident at St. Clair with the overhead back in September. I've seen it here and there on the tracker, but never in service. Same for 4406 which also apparently was damaged somehow and is generally sitting at Leslie and never in service.

    What's the thinking there? That Bombardier would invest all that time and money into getting a line up and running in Kingston only to produce a mere two cars total and then just stop? Seems highly unlikely. More likely, as others have suggested, they've paused Flexity production (or slowed it dramatically) in order to prioritize other work.

    Problem in this case is the truck driver not having a clue how tall his load was. Took out everything on the eastbound side from the bridge to about 50ft. past. The center lane is clearly signed NO TRUCKS, but that didn’t stop this guy.

    Spotted 4534 down in the Beach mid-afternoon heading east to Neville signed out of service.
  8. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_Standard_Light_Rail_Vehicle I did a bunch of sleuthing around the internet and found this mention of an MBTA car test in Cleveland on Wikipedia. The US SLRV is visually quite similar to the CLRV (as the article mentions) so perhaps it's a case of mistaken identity. I haven't found any references to CLRV's being tested in Clevelnad, but the timelines do match up with Cleveland's purchase timelines so maybe it happened.
  9. 4098 spotted out of service back to Connaught under its own power with the truck following. Made it back around 4:55pm.

    4573 is tracking. I've noticed that the more recent cars have a black insert on the operator's cab door with the perforations through which a customer can speak. This seems to be new on maybe the last ten cars or so. The earlier cars have a clear area with the holes.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    I'm 100% sure my little webapp wasn't a problem. I got the same error from my desktop, on a VPN and from the server. And as mentioned above, things seem to be fixed. I saw Transee on Twitter talking to the TTC about it as well.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Yeah. The Nextbus API is coming back with an "Error 15. This request was blocked by the security rules." today for all requests against TTC data. I thought at first they had blocked me for whatever reason (I have a little app that makes not a lot of API calls), but turns out everyone trying to pull up TTC data is running into the same issue.

    Could be 4573 based on the location? I'm also starting to think that Kingston is doing 4572 and up and that TB will be building 4570 and 4571. IIRC the plan was for Kingston to start with 4570?
