  1. Personally I like variety and I'm not looking forward to having a homogeneous streetcar fleet. It's going to be like the subway system. I miss the days when we had TRs, H5s and T1s on line 1 and H4s, H6s and T1s on line 2. Now it's just 1 model running on each line.
  2. 4160 and 4178 are amongst the CLRVs scheduled to make a run on the 301 this evening.
  3. For all you night owls in the beaches area tonight could very well be the last time we ever see a CLRV in service on the 301 at Neville Park considering that Queen is expected to be converted to 100% low floor next week. Better catch that one last ride while you can.
  4. And there aren't that many active 40xx cars remaining I usually see only 10-15 of them in service on a day to day basis.
  5. Here it is a short clip of 4566 en route to Toronto. 20190803_152403.mp4
  6. This afternoon I saw 4566 on a freight train in Sudbury most likely en route to Toronto.
  7. During the daytime on weekdays there are 7 CLRVs used on 501L. One of them always returns to Russell at the tail end of the PM rush and that is indeed the 6:31pm trip from Long Branch which you can catch at Queen and Roncesvalles just after 7pm.
  8. You can also catch them in service on 501 between Humber and Greenwood/Connaught westbound in the early morning and eastbound in the late evening.
  9. Were those the 2 units that were badly destroyed during the Raptors victory celebration on June 13?
  10. That's sad I saw it at Bathurst station in service on the 511 just last week.
  11. But when it's time for Mount Dennis' hybrids and Wilson's NGs to retire those divisions will most certainly get the next batch of new deliveries. Meanwhile Queensway and South Etobicoke routes will be short changed and suffer from the brunt once again. Once the remaining 7900s and 8000s get decommissioned they are very likely going to be replaced with more hand me downs (the remaining 8400s and 8510s) as previously posted in this thread which totally isn't fair.
  12. When the airport buses retire I guess this is our best hope to see brand new bus deliveries at Queensway. I'm just hoping they don't convert the 8400s.
  13. I dislike this how many more "hand me downs" is Queensway getting?
  14. What about the 505 is there any chance we see the CLRVs there before they head for the scrapyard? And when are the Flexities expected to be rolled out on Dundas?
  15. Will we ever see ALRVs in regular service again perhaps on 501L or 511? Or is it safe to assume that they are done with the exception of charters and special runs?
  16. The best time to catch a CLRV on 501A is early morning westbound and late evening eastbound while trekking from Russell to Lake Shore and vice versa but what about other times during the day? Is there one that gets added or removed to the mix before or after peak period?
  17. Is there any chance we see the CLRVs make a return on the 505 before the route gets officially converted to 100% low floor?
  18. The 501 is currently detouring via King and Dufferin due to a security incident at Jamieson so I got to ride a CLRV #4110 on King St. for potentially the last time ever.
