    501 and 514 were both offloaded this morning so that means all 14 of our LRVs are delivered! wiki is updated

    Our LRV operators love it when you take pictures of them

    Looks like that is correct for the offloading date - but 501 had a bit of a unique experience in that it was brought down from the siding to the OMSF on the morning of the 24th (Friday) then sat there on the flatcar until the morning of the 27th (Monday) when it was finally offloaded. Probably some more details to work out back then as it was the first offload. My thought on the wiki page was to use the date that the LRV was brought into the OMSF from the siding as the "delivery date" which for the other LRVs was the same as the offload date but for 501's first trip was not.

    Cool, that would have been our last two cars and they're now in Lancaster yard! They're somewhat marked 501 has yellow tape on it and 514 has the number "16" taped on the windshield for Bombardier car 16

    Hi, we're actually still waiting on 514 to arrive and 501 to come back. According to a CTV report from this past weekend they're both expected to arrive this week. Heard from sources they've both been shipped but I'm not 100% on that. I started a page for you guys btw https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Ion_501-514

    Today's Special Sightings

    Oh, so on this past Sunday the 30th, around 11:45pm or so at night I believe I passed the TTC command bus on the 401 somewhere between Milton and Guelph, heading away from Toronto. Any idea what it was up to?

    GRT confirmed to me over twitter DM that they changed them all this week. I will politely give them my feedback

    I take the 6 to and from work too and only today noticed it changed. Maybe it's only been on some buses?

    Are they changing around the INIT voice? on the 6 this morning and there seems to be a slight difference in the announcement... the voice that says "Next stop" is still the same but the voice that says the actual stop names was different... a bit deeper and faster but also seems to blend in more with the bus sounds so a bit harder to hear...

    General WTF Moments

    Are they saying that was the first time it was used? I heard that on 99.9 when I was in TO on Victoria Day Monday... There was a tornado warning in like... Smiths Falls area or something
