  1. https://www.instagram.com/p/B69mbz4BgMp/?hl=en Looks like 4074 is a goner
  2. Yeah I’ve accepted that they’re done, the TTC wouldn’t go back on that even if it was completely necessary. I still think it’s regrettable on their part since the 508 is almost an ideal spot for the CLRVs to at least help bridge the gap until some new cars arrive (whenever that happens). And I have to agree with @christine that the retirement of the CLRVs seems like a talking point for the TTC more than anything. But what’s done is done. Steve Munro is even doubtful that the 505 will be able to return in April or at least won’t allow for much flexibility for things such as RAD cars across the entire network.
  3. So it seems the 508 is currently bustituted for this board period according to Steve Munro and posts on other threads. I can’t really understand why CLRVs couldn’t be used for the 508. There’s no way they couldn’t find 5 CLRVs a day that were decently reliable and I can’t really understand why accessibility is an issue since the entire route is interlined with accessible cars on the 504/501. The 508 is more of just a convenience/capacity booster anyways.
  4. 4024 and 4187 at Leslie. 4187 signed into 85 Sheppard E
  5. 4034 went to the Illinois Rail Museum back in November
  6. According to it’s tracker, 4094 is at Leslie Barns
  7. https://twitter.com/streetcarmuseum/status/1211359010688917504?s=20 I suppose they hinted at it here 😂
  8. Yes, in addition to that video Steve Munro has an article about multiple unit operation. https://stevemunro.ca/2010/06/16/multiple-unit-clrv-and-alrv-operation/ You can also look at some of the original plans for the Scarborough RT using CLRVs coupled together as well.
  9. 4069’s tracker often seems messed up the times I’ve checked over the past couple months.
  10. Couple of random questions: 1. Something I haven’t been able to find much information about is when they tested an A/C unit on 4089 in the 90s. Does anyone have any pictures or could at least explain what was wrong with it and how it compared to 4041? 2. Is there any plans to have any CLRVs stay around as yard mules? And if 4105 and 4021 are being used as Leslie mules, does anyone know how long they plan to be using those?
  11. Yes anyone can go on the CLRVs from 10-2 from Wolseley to Greenwood. Only the one at 2:45 is for contest winners only.
  12. The last run is from Bathurst to Greenwood. I remember earlier information said the 2 free cars tomorrow will be running from 10-2. However, it’s been posted here already that there will be 6 cars running tomorrow from 10-2 and going from Bathurst to Greenwood only. Roncesvalles is probably a typo or misunderstanding due to the TTC’s somewhat unclear communication. The TTC has also only told people that free 2 cars will be running tomorrow, but according to the information posted here it looks like 6 will be running. Am I also correct to assume that the 511 will be 100% Flexity tomorrow as well?
  13. So once again we get to have this confusion over whether or not CLRVs will be on the 501 tomorrow. The TTC tweeted out again that the CLRVs will be on the 501(weekends) and 511 until the 28th. https://mobile.twitter.com/TTChelps/status/1210606895083507712 I’m not holding my breath, but it would be nice to see them on the 501 tomorrow. Well 4001 it is!!
  14. Steve Munro’s latest post has some nice early CLRV pictures https://stevemunro.ca/2019/12/25/the-early-days-of-the-clrvs/#comments
  15. All that is quite true, especially in comparison to other vehicle retirements we’ve seen. However I think what confuses me and others is why they would have extras running to celebrate their retirement only to stop running them a week prior to retirement.
