  1. Car 4416 is back on property as of this morning (i.e. Fri, Feb 26, 2021). It was towed off railcar transporter JTTX 142012 by car 4531 at Hillcrest this morning. To recap, car 4416 had been loaded up for transport to La Pocatiere, QC on Tue, Oct 13, 2020, so it has been off-property for 136 days, the shortest timeframe for any of the cars going through this process so far . It remains at Hillcrest for now, likely heading to Leslie on Monday afternoon. In turn, car 4439 is off-property as of this morning. It headed to Hillcrest under its own power earlier this morning, and after car 4
  2. It turns out I was wrong, and car 4438 was sent off to Quebec instead. Car 4436 remains on TTC property for now and has returned yesterday (Monday, Feb 15) to Leslie. Car 4413 is back on property as of this morning (i.e. Tue, Feb 16, 2021). It was towed off the railcar transporter by car 4538 at Hillcrest this morning. To recap, car 4413 had been loaded up for transport to La Pocatiere, QC on Tue, Sep 22, 2020, so it has been off-property for exactly 21 weeks, or 147 days. It remains at Hillcrest for now, likely heading to Leslie tomorrow afternoon. In turn, car 4438 is off-prop
  3. You wrote the above on February 2, which is incorrect. Car 4427 was offloaded at Hillcrest on Thursday, February 4. You have been relying on stale data from nextbus, which has been showing car 4427 in the same location at Hillcrest for months where its GPS had been turned off before being loaded up for transport to Quebec. Incorrect. The nextbus tracking data for 4413 & 4425 is stale, so you cannot rely on any of the web-based trackers to pinpoint the location of these cars. There has been quite a bit of activity in terms of movements to and from La Pocatiere, QC this mo
  4. Railcar transporter JTTX 966016, carrying Flexity car #4427, has arrived at CP's Lambton Yard early this morning, with delivery to Hillcrest pending.
  5. Car 4412 is heading down to Leslie under its own power this afternoon after re-delivery to Hillcrest yesterday morning and completion of braking tests earlier today.
  6. Car 4412 is back on property as of today (i.e. Tue, Jan 19, 2021). It was towed off the railcar transporter by car 4535 at Hillcrest this morning. To recap, car 4412 had been loaded up for transport to La Pocatiere, QC on Thu, Jul 9, 2020, for a total turnaround time of 194 days. It remains at Hillcrest for now, likely returning to Leslie tomorrow afternoon. In turn, car 4426 is off-property as of this morning. It headed to Hillcrest under its own power earlier this morning, and after car 4412 had come off, car 4535 was used to load it onto the same transporter for the trip to La Poc
  7. 4412 - railcar transporter XTTX 142012 - is being redelivered to Hillcrest by the Lambton switchers CP 3117 & 4522 as I am typing this. Currently being pushed into the Hillcrest siding.
  8. Car 4425 is off-property as of this morning (i.e. Wed, Dec 23). It headed to Hillcrest under its own power this morning. Car 4456 was used to load it onto the railcar transporter XTTX 137329 for the trip to La Pocatiere, QC - the same railcar that was used to deliver car 4410 to Toronto almost two weeks ago. The last day of service for car 4425 was Monday, December 14 on 509 Harbourfront.
  9. I have been remiss in not reporting here that car 4410 has been re-delivered after retrofits in Quebec were completed. It was unloaded at Hillcrest last Friday (Dec 11), with car 4602 being used to tow it off of the railcar transporter. It had been loaded up at Hillcrest on June 29, 2020, so it was off-property for a total of 165 days. After being unloaded, it headed to Leslie under its own power later that afternoon, and it has started on-street testing yesterday. Of note, the railcar used to return 4410 to Toronto (XTTX 137329) is still at the Hillcrest loading dock, and it will pr
  10. We mark a milestone today, as the entire active streetcar fleet is now equipped with VISION. Work on 4602, the last active car that was still running CIS, was completed at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Thu, Dec 10). To recap, excluding the 4486 pilot car, which was completed last fall, work to install VISION on the streetcar fleet began on February 3 this year, with 4538 being the first car to go through the process. It took just over 10 months to complete the work on the entire active fleet. There are now 201 cars (out of 204) running VISION. Car 4503 is the last vehicle physically o
  11. Yes, both 4598 & 4599 have returned to Leslie yesterday after they had VISION installed at Hillcrest. Unless car 4602 is deployed in revenue service anywhere this afternoon (which is unlikely), we can say that yesterday (Dec 1, 2020) was the end of the 42 year CIS era on the TTC. CIS was rolled out in 1978, as far as I know. Car 4593 was the last non-VISION vehicle in service on 503 Kingston Rd all day yesterday. It has headed to Hillcrest this morning for VISION installation. The last non-VISION car in the active fleet, 4602, will likely follow suit tomorrow morning.
  12. Since the previous update, cars 4574, 4575, 4577, 4583, 4584, 4585, 4586, 4587, 4588, 4590, 4592, 4595, 4596 & 4600 have been equipped with VISION. All have returned to the divisions, except 4575 and 4596, which are still at Hillcrest at this time. Cars 4597 & 4598 are at Hillcrest undergoing installation. This leaves only five cars (4591, 4593, 4594, 4599 & 4602) in the active fleet still running CIS at this time, all of them recently confined to the 505 Dundas route. In addition, 4503 still has CIS, but it has been out of service for over a year, since August
  13. Car 4418 is back on property as of yesterday morning (i.e. Mon, Nov 23, 2020). It was towed off the railcar transporter by car 4577 at Hillcrest. To recap, car 4418 had been loaded up for transport to La Pocatiere, QC on Mon, Jun 22, 2020, so it was off-property for exactly 22 weeks, or 154 days. Car 4418 is still at Hillcrest undergoing braking tests at this time. It should be back at Leslie later this evening. In turn, car 4421 is off-property as of yesterday morning. It headed to Hillcrest under its own power yesterday in the morning, and after car 4418 had come off, car 4577
  14. Car 4418 is back from Quebec and has been re-delivered by CP to Hillcrest this weekend. It is currently at the loading dock, awaiting off-load, which will likely happen tomorrow morning or Tuesday.
  15. Thanks for doing this! Since the previous update two weeks ago, cars 4544, 4551, 4553, 4554, 4555, 4557, 4558, 4559, 4560, 4561, 4562, 4563, 4564 & 4565 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4574 & 4590 are at Hillcrest undergoing installation. Cars 4583 & 4592 are next in line to be equipped and are at Hillcrest as well, but work has not started on these cars yet.
