  1. This thread is for tracking the TTC's CLRV/ALRV streetcars as they begin retiring. List of vehicles: Bolded units of all colours = MIA Bolded and crossed out units of all colours = retired Green = car that underwent life extension Blue = undergoing life extension Bolded and crossed out red = unit that entered or was prepared for the life extension program, but was retired prior to completion CLRV: 94/196 active 4000, 4001, 4002, 4003, 4004, 4005, 4010, 4011, 4012, 4013, 4014, 4015, 4016, 4017, 4018, 4019, 4020, 4021, 4022, 4023, 4024, 4025, 4026, 4027, 4028, 4029, 4030, 4031, 4032, 4033, 4034, 4035, 4036, 4037, 4038, 4039, 4040, 4041, 4042, 4043, 4044, 4045, 4046, 4047, 4048, 4049, 4050, 4051, 4052, 4053, 4054, 4055, 4056, 4057, 4058, 4059, 4060, 4061, 4062, 4063, 4064, 4065, 4066, 4067, 4068, 4069, 4070, 4071, 4072, 4073, 4074, 4075, 4076, 4077, 4078, 4079, 4080, 4081, 4082, 4083, 4084, 4085, 4086, 4087, 4088, 4089, 4090, 4091, 4092, 4093, 4094, 4095, 4096, 4097, 4098, 4099, 4100, 4101, 4102, 4103, 4104, 4105, 4106, 4107, 4108, 4109, 4110, 4111, 4112, 4113, 4114, 4115, 4116, 4117, 4118, 4119, 4120, 4121, 4122, 4123, 4124, 4125, 4126, 4127, 4128, 4129, 4130, 4131, 4132, 4133, 4134, 4135, 4136, 4137, 4138, 4139, 4140, 4141, 4142, 4143, 4144, 4145, 4146, 4147, 4148, 4149, 4150, 4151, 4152, 4153, 4154, 4155, 4156, 4157, 4158, 4159, 4160, 4161, 4162, 4163, 4164, 4165, 4166, 4167, 4168, 4169, 4170, 4171, 4172, 4173, 4174, 4175, 4176, 4177, 4178, 4179, 4180, 4181, 4182, 4183, 4184, 4185, 4186, 4187, 4188, 4189, 4190, 4191, 4192, 4193, 4194, 4195, 4196, 4197, 4198, 4199 ALRV: 12/52 active 4200, 4201, 4202, 4203, 4204, 4205, 4206, 4207, 4208, 4209, 4210, 4211, 4212, 4213, 4214, 4215, 4216, 4217, 4218, 4219, 4220, 4221, 4222, 4223, 4224, 4225, 4226, 4227, 4228, 4229, 4230, 4231, 4232, 4233, 4234, 4235, 4236, 4237, 4238, 4239, 4240, 4241, 4242, 4243, 4244, 4245, 4246, 4247, 4248, 4249, 4250, 4251 PLEASE NOTE: as we approach the end of the ALRV era, the tracking list on the front page can no longer be considered fully accurate with regards to the status of the fleet. There are many cars listed that have been retired that are not marked as such; the reason for this is that I await any official confirmation before striking the vehicle from the active list. In addition, the numbers of the ALRVs active varies day by day, so the active vs. MIA cars are not fully accurate, either. For a day to day outlook of how many ALRVs make it into service, please refer to TransSee: https://www.transsee.ca/fleetfind?a=ttc&q=4200-4251&Go=Go Feel free to post any sightings, pictures, notes or memories you have.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?

    7575's a dad!

    Congratulations!!
  10. 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.
  11. This thread is to list ways you can identify transit fans from regular passengers. You know you're a transit fan when... -you are willing to suffer through a 9 hour round trip on a coach bus without air conditioning so that you can photograph Tatra streetcars in Bratislava -related to above - you camp out at a transit stop for 40 minutes so that you can ride the oldest streetcars in the city -after somebody insults your favorite transit vehicle, you feel like clubbing them -you wake up at 4 or 5 AM so that you can maximize your amount of time in a far away city (related to first item), or so that you can take advantage of the vehicles out and about for morning rush
  12. Unless there's something the photo above doesn't tell us, the damage should be pretty mild. A lesser CLRV would probably retire from it but if they're keeping 4002 for historical purposes then this should be a minor set back at best. It's the people injured in the accident you should be worried about.
  13. The Friends of Philadelphia Trolleys and the Wilmington Chapter NRHS are co-sponsoring a charter in Toronto using PCC car and a CLRV on Saturday, August 17, 2019. The trip will depart form Russell Carhouse, 1433 Queen Street, Toronto, ON at 11AM. This will be a historic trip as the days for CLRVs are coming to an end. Proceeds from this charter will be donated towards the restoration of former Philadelphia Transportation Company 1923 Brill-built car #8042 at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. The charter will last six hours and the cost is $85.00 (U.S. funds) per person. Canadian guests paying by check, please write on the amount line: "EIGHTY FIVE DOLLARS US FUNDS". Please make your check payable to "FRIENDS OF PHILADELPHIA TROLLEYS, INC." and mail it, along with your name, phone number, and email address, to HARRY DONAHUE, 103 MULBERRY COURT, MORGANTOWN, PA 19543.

  14. It could literally be anything, same deal with all of the other cars up at Hillcrest. It could be up there for repairs, for decommissioning, whatever. I am not a TTC employee, i just report what I observe on the trackers.
  15. I have it since October 15, but I don't know when the car came back into service looking like that. In any case: 4187 is booked out on the 501 this morning. 4001, 4003, 4039, 4079, 4086, 4087, 4091, 4127 at Hillcrest 4181 MIA since March 28 on 506 4144 MIA since April 1 on 506

    Any bus owners here?

    While I understand 7575's reason for keeping the info on the buses on the DL, you can hardly blame the people in this thread for being interested. How often does something in this city get saved from the scrapper's clutches? A TTC bus continuing to exist justifies every bit of interest it generates.
  17. This is fairly recent, I think. Back in 2014 the car had the regular forehead font.
  18. If there is a list out there, I haven't been able to find it. It also doesn't help that it seems like some of the cars that used to have 2+2 seating lost it over this decade, for example 4041 had 2+2 seating when I rode it in 2012 but by 2016 it was 2+1. That being said, I know of: 4001-4004 (4000 was the only SIG unit to lose the double seating), 4110, and 4182. I believe 4057 is one of them too but I'm not 100% on that.
  19. 4182 is back from Hillcrest, tracking at Russell.

    Anyone create their own transit system?

    It's been a minute since I posted anything in here, but here is a new map export, exactly one year after I started work on Yorkland. https://www.dropbox.com/s/p9fjmewa1zggxta/Yorkland one year on.PNG?dl=0 With a bonus export of a natural features only map. Nothing manmade. https://www.dropbox.com/s/gif9plth0rkn6jz/Yorkland nature.PNG?dl=0 Background information and older maps here: https://republicofyork.wordpress.com/about/
  21. Do we know it's in service or just on a test run?

    Today's Sightings

    4047 has been retired since January 2018.
  23. 4132 is on the 501 today
  24. The car was reported as being stripped earlier in the thread. However, going by the photos I took of it most recently, it doesn't appear to have been stripped , so that and the recent reactivation of its tracker has lead me to remove its retired status pending further info.
