  1. Car 4580 was unloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Fri, Sep 13). Car 4453 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter.
  2. A number of Flexities that are on property have been out of service for some time. 4402 was last in service on a regular, day-to-day basis on April 21. Since then, it has seen service sporadically, on only three days, with the very last day in service being May 18. 4420 was last in service on August 20 (however, it was used for towing 4571 off of CP's railcar at Hillcrest this morning, so it is operable). 4437 was last in service on August 1. 4438 has been out of service since March 8 due to a collision. 4452 was last in service on June 6. 4464 is currently at Hillcrest and has been out of service since June 10 due to a collision. 4485 was last in service on April 27. 4498 has crapped out while in service on August 6 and has been missing since. 4503 has crapped out while in service on August 20 and has been missing since. 4505 was last in service on April 10.
  3. It has begun on-street testing today. Car 4571 was unloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Tue, Sep 10). Car 4420 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter.
  4. Thanks for the update. However, if past experience is any indication, that car is heading to the Kingston plant and is not coming back to Toronto just yet. On an unrelated note, the streetcar stork has delivered a new baby over the weekend. 4571 is at the Hillcrest loading dock, so it will likely be offloaded tomorrow (i.e. Monday) morning. In addition to 4580 being on its way from Thunder Bay, I am being told that another car (4577??) has been released from the Millhaven plant in Kingston, but I have not been able to verify that information.
  5. Test run. Car 4570 was finally offloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Fri, Sep 6) after sitting for two days at the loading dock. Car 4567 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter. In turn, car 4414 is off-property as of this morning. It headed to Hillcrest yesterday evening, and after car 4570 came off this morning, car 4567 was used to load it up onto the same railcar for transport to La Pocatiere, QC. Of note, the last day of service for car 4414 was August 2, so it sat idle for over a month before being sent off for repairs.
  6. Further to this, the ALRV's were short enough to fit two at a time in each of those bays, so in theory as many as four ALRV's could be worked on at the same time. Two Flexities cannot quite fit in one bay, so the maximum practical capacity is two Flexities at a time (one per bay). They had done that earlier this summer when 4438 & 4543 were both up there for about a month at the same time. Currently, one of the bays is occupied by Flexity 4464 and the other by CLRV's 4034 and 4039.
  7. Car 4576 has left Roncesvalles carhouse about 20 minutes ago and is now in service on 504B King. It was delivered on July 11, so it took 50 days to commission it. Coincidentally, this is exactly how long it took to get car 4489 into service last summer, which also happened to be both delivered and commissioned exactly 1 year and 1 day earlier than the corresponding dates for car 4576.
  8. Car 4569 was unloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Fri, Aug. 30). Car 4415 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter. That is correct.
  9. Flexity #4438 has finally returned to Leslie this afternoon, after completion of collision repairs at Hillcrest. It went up to Hillcrest on April 12, and has seen no service since the collision in the early morning hours of March 8. In turn, Flexity #4464 was sent up to Hillcrest this past Monday (Aug 26) and is in the service bay formerly occupied by car 4438. It has not been in service since the collision and derailment at King & University on June 10.
  10. Car 4569 is at Lambton yard awaiting delivery to Hillcrest later tonight. If no unexpected issues arise, it should be offloaded tomorrow (i.e. Friday) morning.
  11. Car 4568 was offloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Fri, Aug 23). Car 4438 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter.
  12. Car 4567 was unloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Fri, Aug 16). Car 4479 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter.
  13. Car 4566 was unloaded at Hillcrest this morning (Fri, Aug. 9). Car 4443 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter. Considering that Kingston has only supplied five vehicles so far, it is hard to say. 4572 took 25 days to commission. 4573 took 19 days, 4574 took 21 days. 4575 took 17 days. 4576 is not yet in service. It arrived on July 11. What may be interesting to note is that 2 of the 5 vehicles (4574 & 4576) could not be powered up on delivery to Hillcrest and required towing to Leslie.
  14. Car 4565 was finally unloaded this morning (i.e. Wed, Aug 7) after sitting at the loading dock at Hillcrest since early Saturday morning. Car 4518 was used to tow it off of CP's transporter.
