If I can ask another question, unit 2043 was another of those 4 cars from that post last year, but it is not in the retired list. Can someone confirm whether it is still active?

I believe I just saw 2043 last week. I remember it because 2083 was coupled to it.

And it was one. Quotation. Mark.

All other U2s listed as active in revenue units have been in service in 2019 and are currently marked as active units. 2044 is the exception, as it has not seen service in 2019 but still marked as active. As suggested by another insider, it will likely be marked as scrap in due course. This is reportidly one the in better shape U2s and there is still discussion around its future.

2064, 2066, and 2080 have all been hauled down to E track near 66 St (Edmonton!). I'm guessing it's scrapping time, but, I guess we'll see. Not sure if they went as a 3 car train (presumably hauled by 2010) or if they were taken down one by one. When I Iast saw 2066 a week and a half ago it was still on shop trucks, so I'm kind of a surprised to see in that time they've hauled it back into the shops and fitted it with proper trucks.

I'm sure they fitted those cars with the proper trucks to get them over there I don't think they give you those temporary trucks on main line.

They'll probably transport the trucks back when the cars is got hauled away.

When car 2329 and 2310 got moved from OBMF to Anderson they borrowed trucks from another train to get it back to home base so repairs could be made.

Car 2028 broke down yesterday at City Hall North. Sounds like it was a cam controller... will it be repaired? I guess we will find out.

Probably not, at least if they base the decision on the value of the repair work.

2017 and 2040. Toast. Bunch more on the loop track at OBMF waiting for disposal 

The body of 2017 actually looks so much better than a lot of the others that have been scrapped. It barely has any rust or holes. But these are probably scrapped when something is too expensive to repair or there's something wrong with the electronics that isn't worth fixing.

As previously discussed cars 2076 2067 2072 2078 2045 2052 are sidelined on the loop track at OBMF powered up.

I believe 2016 is also sidelined on the westside of OBMF. It's been parked there for weeks power up.
