I'm sure it's meant as the fifth completed vehicle. It's a non-issue, anyway.

Yep, mock-up is 2000.

The mock up is being turned into a simulator

For anyone curious, Alstom posted this tweet confirming that there are over 10 vehicles on-site in different stages. From manufacturing to testing of the vehicles to ensure no issues occur. Should any issues do occur, they correct them and then reset the burn-in testing. 

TTC LFLRV streetcars and Toronto Rocket subway trains go through burn-in testing before heading into revenue service. I know the TTC LFLRV streetcars require 600 kilometres of running without any issues before accepting delivery and putting into revenue service.

A bit of question regarding the first day of revenue service. The claim was Spring 2018 the first stage of the Confederation line will be in revenue service.

Now, there is a possible chance that it may be delayed along with the date retracted simply stating 2018. This is more to protect themselves against commitment especially how many years of work when it started and being very large scale, there have been many issues reported.

The Rideau sinkhole was the biggest issue since they don't want to do any work until they know the issue is addressed and restoration before resuming.

Final comments:

The basic logic is that nothing is ever set in stone usually. Especially for large scale projects citing Eglinton Crosstown in Toronto also has been delayed due to the large scale of work involved. It was originally supposed to open in 2020, now it won't be open until 2021 if that milestone can be achieved either.

Various media reporters have been tweeting that there is a construction-related incident at the eastern portal of the LRT Tunnel (Waller/Laurier area). Apparently a crane flipped over around 9:35am.
