  1. Since the previous update, cars 4513, 4515 & 4521 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4434 & 4514 are at Hillcrest for installation.
  2. Both of you are correct, depending on what one chooses to define as "off-property". Car 4401 was loaded up onto the railcar transporter on May 14, 2018, so it was off TTC rails on that day. However, there was a delay at that time on the part of CP, and the shipment was not picked up from Hillcrest until May 22, 2018.
  3. Car 4408 was finally unloaded at Hillcrest today (i.e. Tuesday, May 26) just after 12 noon, after sitting at the loading dock since last Thursday. Speaking of coincidences, it was sent off to La Pocatiere on June 28, 2019, so it was off-property for 333 days. Coincidentally, car 4407 was re-delivered to Hillcrest exactly 3 weeks ago, on May 5, and it too was off-property for exactly 333 days, having been sent off to La Pocatiere on June 7, 2019. Car 4415 was used to tow car 4408 off the railcar transporter this afternoon. In turn, car 4415 is off-property as of 1 PM today. Car 4415 headed to Hillcrest earlier this morning, and after it was used to unload car 4408, it was itself loaded up using car 4536 onto the same transporter for the trip to La Pocatiere. Car 4536 has been at Hillcrest since last Friday (May 22) for VISION installation and is now equipped. The last day of service for car 4415 was Wednesday, May 13, 2020 as a RAD car on 509 Harbourfront.
  4. Since the previous update, cars 4501, 4506, 4510, 4511 & 4536 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4515 & 4521 are at Hillcrest for installation.
  5. Today is actually the fourth day of on-street testing for car 4407 (the first was May 19) and the car has been out during daytime and evening every day since. The first on-street test after re-delivery was done just after 12 noon on May 19, but it was a relatively short one, from Leslie Barns to Wolseley Loop at Queen & Bathurst and back to the carhouse. As to how long the re-commissioning period will be after the retrofit (that's how the process that has the cars cycled through La Pocatiere is formally referred to as), I think we will have to wait and see.
  6. Car 4408 has been delivered by CP to Hillcrest yesterday, but it has yet to be offloaded. With the weekend coming up, it will probably be back on TTC rails on Monday morning (May 25).
  7. So far, this is the longest time that a car has been missing from service due to re-welding. To recap: Previous day in service: October 20, 2018 Sent to QC: October 29, 2018 Returned to Hillcrest: March 13, 2020 Total time off-property: 501 days Re-entered service: May 21, 2020 (69 days after re-delivery) Total downtime: 578 days
  8. Since the previous update, cars 4494 & 4508 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4501 & 4510 are at Hillcrest for installation.
  9. Car 4407 has begun on-street testing today, 14 days after re-delivery. Also, can someone please correct the typo in the wiki article on car 4405? The re-delivery date should read Feb 3, 2020 (not 2019). Thanks!
  10. Since the previous update, cars 4499 & 4519 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4494 & 4508 are at Hillcrest for installation.
  11. Of note, car 4401 took 52 days to commission after being delivered as a production car, significantly longer than average. Not taking into account the first two production cars (4400 & 4403), that entered service as scheduled on August 31, 2014, only car 4543 took longer to commission (92 days), but that was due to a collision it was involved in during the initial on-street testing period. Actually, its last test run was yesterday. It has done test runs every day from April 26 to May 1, inclusive. It was then out for two more days, on May 7 and May 13.
  12. Since the previous update, cars 4488, 4502, 4505 & 4507 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4499 & 4519 are at Hillcrest for installation.
  13. Since the previous update, cars 4497 & 4530 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4488 & 4502 are at Hillcrest for installation. To recap, there are now 43 cars equipped with VISION, as follows: 4400 4402 4410 to 4413, inclusive 4415 to 4419, inclusive 4422 to 4427, inclusive 4430 4431 4457 4469 4482 to 4484, inclusive 4486 to 4493, inclusive 4495 to 4498, inclusive 4500 4502 4504 4509 4516 4530 4538 All are in service, except 4411 (off-property for welding repairs) and 4457 (long-term hold at Leslie)
  14. Car 4407 is back on property after 333 days, having been sent to La Pocatiere on June 7, 2019. It was unloaded at Hillcrest this morning (i.e. Tuesday, May 5). Car 4488 was used to tow it off of the railcar transporter. In turn, car 4411 is off-property as of this morning. It headed to Hillcrest yesterday evening, and after car 4407 came off this morning, car 4488 was used to load it up onto the same railcar for transport to La Pocatiere. The last day of service for car 4411 was Thursday, April 23, 2020. Correct. The same was done on car 4572 after arrival from Kingston.
  15. Since the previous update, cars 4431 & 4500 have been equipped with VISION. Cars 4497 & 4530 are at Hillcrest for installation.
