I sympathize with you,....Ontario_Transit et al, I do not. much of my existing workload now is spent keeping the old strategic mapping system going. Thank you for reminding me who I really do it for

Apologies for the confusion. I made a mistake in my previous two posts in this thread - for the sake of clarity, I will correct them, as appropriate. I have now confirmed the delivery dates and t

Looks like 4603 entered service on 501 last Thursday.

I posted on Monday that 4603 was doing in service testing. In fact, it was in service testing as a 501 and 301 rest of the day and night and became a dot well heading to the barn. Considering the fact that 4603 was off loaded on Jan 24, impossible for it be in service 5 days after arrival when the shortest has been 8 days a few years ago. 12-17 days these days. It along 4601 & 4406 in the service bay at this time. 4601 been here 11 days so far and 4406 been here 44 days

Now 4407 is on its way from Quebec, will Kingston see it first or will Hillcrest?? Was loaded June 7, 2019 at Hillcrest for Quebec.

4406 is taking longer than 4400 for reenter service and spending time on the service yard track these days that its GPS was missing over 2 days

4601 been spending time on the service tracks as well was out testing Tuesday and early Wed.

Looks like 4603 may go into service before 4601, as it and 4405 are the only cars out of the 4 currently in the service bay.

4603 is westbound King St and has enter service as a 310 after arriving January 24, 2019. Will become an 510 (kg510) once on Spadina. 

4406 and 4601 are out in the yard on the service track most of Friday and still there. They have spent time this week on that track

Anyone know what up with 4601 that been sitting on the service track in the yard the last 2 weeks considering it arrived January 21, 2019? It should be in service now.

4406 is not tracking anymore for the last day or so and was last seen 2 days ago when it was tracking. Arrived December 19, 2019.

4405 was last seen a day ago after it arrived February 3, 2020 and has spent most of its time in the service bay.

I am assuming 4407 is still sitting in Montreal due rail closure.

That was a nice PR Photo of 4471 sitting in TB plant that was to be ship to TTC since no reports that it been ship or off loaded so far.

the tracking system reset last Sunday.  So if the vehicle wasn't turn on after Sunday, it won't be tracked.

What's going on with 4401? It's a month after the last unit was delivery. Does it take them this long to finish this unit?

Well they didn't do 4400 or 4402 in a month, and it has to get the frame welds done on top of that.

Maybe they are going to use it as a VISION pilot car -

Huh? There already is a VISION pilot car - 4486 - and it didn't have to leave the city to get that equipment. And even if they were doing another, how would that explain its prolonged absence? It's hardly of much use to anyone if they can't test it here.

complete with digital route maps and the such (photo not necessary).

What indication has the TTC given that this is an avenue they are pursuing?

It took close to a year to get 4400 & 4402 rebuilt as production cars. 4400 was shipped to Ottawa for testing and then to Thunder Bay Sept 2013 and return July 4, 2014. 4402 was Shipped To Thunder Bay June 12, 2015 and return November 24, 2016

4601 still sitting on the service track in the yard and been there over 2 weeks. No idea what wrong with it considering it arrived Jan 21

4406 is back tracking after been off line a week that arrived December 19, 2019 and 4405 was last seen a day ago that arrived February 3, 2020. Could be they are having VISION installed in them.

4471 & 4478 still in Thunder Bay.

4401 could be here by June.

The re-welding on car 4401 had been completed in La Pocatiere before the car was sent to Thunder Bay in late April last year.

Car 4406 was re-delivered on December 16, 2019, not December 19. VISION installation appears to be done at Hillcrest. So far, cars 4457, 4486, 4516 & 4538 are done, with cars 4418 & 4509 being worked on currently.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't La Pocatiere served by CN? If so, wouldn't the interchange cost from CN to CP be more expensive then the cost of just using the truck the whole way?

All the cars shipped from Quebec go to Kingston first so far that is on CN tracks. Sound like Kingston is putting the cars back together before being ship to TTC. Being taking about 40-45 days for a car to go back into service once TTC has it, but 4406 has taken 76 days so far and not in service at tis time. Other than 4403 due to no rail service, all cars have been shipped by rail to TTC from Kingston.

4402 is out testing on St Clair that been missing for some time.
