Two more weeks and two more streetcars to make this month's delivery and still be one behind. Let's see if they can make 4 this month.

They need to deliver 3 more in the next 2 weeks to catch up to the schedule published 6 months ago.

Is something wrong with the recent Flexity streetcars? For the last dozen cars or so before 4435, most of them entered revenue service 10-14 days after delivery but 8 of the last 11 cars 4435-4445 are needing 14+ days to enter revenue service. 4444 is at 19 days by my count and 4445 is close behind at 14.

Sounds like some of the final work is being done in Toronto to get the cars to Toronto quicker.

They would not make them. TTC would have to agree on it. But if it means the cars get put into service faster then the TTC would be on board with it

4448 was offloaded and arrived at Leslie this past Wednesday. Currently, commissioning burn in runs are normally done one car at a time. 

Word from a source says 4449, 4450 & 4451 will be delivered this month.

Keep your eyes open from now until early next year. Streetcar land will be going through changes.

Does TTC management provide a monthly report indicating the impact of delayed M1 deliveries; such as number of forced ALRV-CLRV make-ready-for service and re-directed bus unit counts to supplement streetcar service?

They dont need to wrap them during transport? 

No, as they are being delivered by flatbed cars in otherwise-ordinary freight train consists; contrary to Siemens of Florin, CA which afaik wraps all of its railcar deliveries as they are trucked along public highways. The TR subway cars were similarly wrapped for the same reason several years ago.
