Are there CLRVs still running on the 510 Spadina route, or are there only Flexitys? Just curious.

Yup.  See below:

Seems like you're MIA when 4402 arrived and entered service. It's not listed on your first post either

Some people aren't posting deliveries on this thread when the Flexitys arrive.  Oh yeah, 4431's at Leslie Barns right now.

4433 is trackable, but I posted it in the wrong thread earlier. My apologies.

Car 4433 was delivered to Hillcrest yesterday (Mar. 21). I presume it was towed down to Leslie late in the evening yesterday or overnight. Not sure what car was used for towing it.

4433 drove to Leslie on its own. A new arrival procedure has been issued. Cars will be towed by a clrv off of the flatbed car, then brake rated. Upon successful brake rates, the car is cleared to head down to Leslie.

This is interesting - thanks for the info. Glad to hear they gave up towing. I happened to see it several times being done in the evenings as previous cars were delivered. It definitely seemed too cumbersome, and it was fouling up traffic quite a bit, particularly in "problematic" areas, such as the turns at Bathurst & King.

Didn't they need police escorts or someone to watch the back as two cars combination of 60m (200ft) is too long for any vehicle to operate on their own?

You would need a TPS escorts, even with dimensional loads on trucks in the city with pilot cars need TPS escorts.

The convoys were accompanied by two service vehicles: a supervisor vehicle in front and a service truck at the back.
