  1. Any ideas what they do with the old headlights? I would imagine that have hundreds piling up somewhere. Or do they toss 'em?
  2. Definitely not long exposure. Otherwise the maintence worker would have motion blur. Def higher ISO film or push processing.
  3. CLRVs are done. That's it. Finished. Gone. They're inaccessible. At high(er) risk of breaking down. Their retirement ceremony has passed. TTC has confirmed all surface routes are now fully accessible. There is no going back at this point.
  4. Current state. Although it seems utterly pointless speculating about the future of these. We all know that all (but a select few) will be sent to the scrapyard, so it's just a matter of time.
  5. Gonna swing by Russel today and grab some pics and see who's on death row.
  6. Wondering if they're starting the scrapping or preservation process of 4148 ....
  7. Soooooooooooooo, now what? Is that it? Will the remaining/surviving CLRVs make it to graveyard, with the exception of a few that will be preserved?
  8. So there's CLRVs running on 501 right now? How come they're not tracking? Is there any room on any of them?
  9. All TTC customers riding a CLRV along Queen St. from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Sunday will also be in for a treat; a free ride. Date: Sun., Dec. 29, 2019 Time: 2:45 - 4 p.m. Location: Wolseley Loop, located near Bathurst St. and Queen St. So from what I understand: ▪ They'll be running CLRVS on the 501 between 10AM-2PM, open to the public. ▪ They'll be running the last two CLRVs between 2:45 - 4PM for the content winners only.
  10. Random Q - When streetcars have completed their run for the day, and heading back to the carhouse, do they remain in revenue service? or do they go out of service? I'm asking because I was on Bathurst the other day, and Saw a 512 St Clair driving south (presumably towards roncesvalles). It had the 512 sign, but wasn't sure if they take passengers on the way or not.
  11. I didn't get shots of the exterior, but the trucks/bogies and the overall exterior of 4001 looked BRAND new. Never seen anything like it. Enjoy some red seatback SIG goodness ...
  12. 501 Queen & 511 Bathurst - Temporary service increase ends – CLRV streetcar retirement Customer impact: Minor Effective date: December 28, 2019 From Nov. 24 through Dec. 28, CLRVs will operate on 511 Bathurst seven days a week with additional CLRVs deployed as extra service on 501 Queen on weekends only between Roncesvalles Ave. and Greenwood Ave. On Dec. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., two CLRVs will run as free service between Bathurst St. and Greenwood Ave. to commemorate the final day of service. The final ride, which is for contest winners, runs from Wolseley Loop at Bathurst St. to Russell Carhouse at Greenwood Ave.
  13. I would imagine that's impossible to stage something like that, on the existing streetcar system, as there's no crossover tracks anywhere. Am I right?
