    Today's Sightings

    I think this thread is neat to document the routes various vehicles were on at certain points in history. Sure, TransSee has vehicle history, but it doesn't last forever, and if you're not a subscriber then you can only see the streetcar history anyway. It's cool to look through old posts and see when some long retired vehicle was in service and where.
  2. Do you have a link to this trip data? For some reason TransSee hangs when j try to load the pages of certain cars like 4075, 4065, and 4084.
  3. Looks to be the case. It hasn't run since March 6.
  4. A brief video I shot today of 4041 being manhandled by 4075. I thought a scrap consist was being readied, bu after shunting the car back into its regular spot 4075 moved off.
  5. 4084 and 4144 are stripped. EDIT: 4039 was sighted by yours truly on the 501 today.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Because literally anyone can go on the website and type some comment chalk full of misinformation.
  7. 4079 is out on the 501 4091 is back at Hillcrest for some reason. According to the photos I took at Russell yesterday, 4181 is sitting behind the scrap line of cars lead by 4041, with its pole down, right in front of 4182 which still tracks. 4022, 4101 and 4065 are parked on one of the western tracks behind some of the ALRVs. 4022 indeed looks very shiny and clean, meanwhile 4101 is faded, rusted, and has already had a panel removed (right before the rear doors), so I have marked it as retired.
  8. 4002 was trolling around Russell without a skirt today. Did a lap around the yard and then into one of the service bays. Sadly the best photo I could get.

    Current TTC Wraps

    The general procedure in this thread is to report any sighting of a wrapped vehicle until such time as it's no longer wrapped.

    TTC in the news

    Isn't that problem nullified by the fact that all the stops are far side, though?

  15. Hmm. Maybe not. It's still reporting there as of right now. I wish I knew what exactly is going on here. It's not the first time, either... back in September this sort of thing happened with 4011. Its GPS got jammed at Gerrard and Broadview, and I walked along the street from Pape to find that the car was nowhere to be found. It would be like that for another couple of hours before it finally stopped reporting that the data was fresh.
