  1. Just wondering why they don't seem to care to do these 2 units. Usually it's because they're either obligated to do it by contract of some form or the money is not enough to justify them doing it on schedule and they have other higher priority units to do first (or higher revenue / contracts to fulfill before they get to these two units). As you said it was originally suppose to be done in Q1 2020 afterall. Unfortunately these 2 units are not part of the first 66 units with the defects otherwise there's more of a priority to do them as they'll hit 2 birds with 1 stone.
  2. Are 4471 and 4478 to be sanitized and resent back to the TTC for free? That why they are in no priority to do them since they don't get paid to do it.
  3. I brought this up cause I recently saw a video walkthrough of Montreal and noticed STM Metro stations still uses these type of rotating doors. It brought back memories of the 90/2000s when TTC used them. STM Metro must be really behind in the times! lol
  4. Anyone know why TTC replaced the original rotating doors to the older subway stations in the last decade even before they made the station accessible? Were these type of doors not user friendly or have mobility issues? Example below the middle door: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.6782645,-79.3522078,3a,55.1y,274.78h,84.98t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1snRHoQyFQkjVSHXEc36ARnA!2e0!5s20110801T000000!7i13312!8i6656
  5. From another forum, unit 515 has started revenue service. This is that extra unit they received from the Bombardier penalty.
  6. Which then begs the question why the Orion VIIs all have that rearmost window openable...
  7. How come TTC spec the LFS with the rearmost windows sealed when I see other systems have that openable?
  8. Oops must have missed 4427. Fixed now. 4419 is missing the route it was on upon reentry of service. Anyone know? 4471 and 4478 will be like 4401; totally sidelined until the rest are done. What sucks is the fact these two units are not part of the welding batch which means it is two additional units off TTC property.
  9. Doing a quite accuracy check... from the wiki, I counted 12 units sent for welding repairs plus the 2 unsanitized units. That's quite alot of units off property. Is that correct?
  10. This is a very short extension of the infrastructure so I'm surprised they are putting the East Bayfront portion to Cherry St first. They should both be done at the same time and forget about the Villager Island extension for now.
  11. Read from another forum that construction stopped last Sept due to some contractor issue and now it has restarted with a projected completion date of Nov 2021.
  12. Anyone know if they have a preliminary path as to how they want to extend the streetcar tracks from the Ex to Dufferin loop? How do they plan to cross the Gardiner since west of the Ex, the highway lowers back down to ground level and below further west. How do they plan to cross the rail tracks since Dufferin loop is north of the tracks while the current Ex loop is south of it.
  13. ttc rider posted in Feb 16 2021 that 4438 went to Quebec Island. How can it have taken 4435's spot when 4435 was just delivered back to the TTC? I had swapped 4436 with 4438 as 4436 remained with the TTC back in Feb 2021. You guys are contradicting each other.
  14. At this point every transfers are handmedowns as there's no new buses until 2022.
  15. And he seems to have came into this board after the 74/78xx retired. Back then no one complained Eglinton and Birchmount had the oldest models in the fleet nor did anyone cared.
