4230's "B" section departed westbound on Queen towards Greenwood (and presumably onwards) at 13:39 this afternoon. I (obviously) left several hours ago but I overheard the workers shouting to each oth

Listening to 680 News the other day made me think of this: You could always pick up CLRV chopper sound on the AM radio when you were driving under streetcar wire.  I'm going to have to follow one

I took my own advice to enjoy the VLRVs this week last night after a family Christmas get together and took a couple of quiet rides on Bathurst. I did it the old fashioned way, the way I us

4005 has been decommissioned.

Thanks! Post has been updated.

Does anyone know where the decommissioned cars go before being hauled off for scrap? Do they languish around Hillcrest, or do they keep them in the yards?

Just wondering but do they even bother leaving the retired cars to a side for parts for the other streetcars before scrapping them? We don't know if the flexitys will delay even more or not. They do that with the buses that are retired (excluding ones in process of retirement)

Edit: The first list with all the numbers, you should update it every once in a while so we don't have to dig though lists and lists later on. Another suggestion is to use a red font for those who are 100% confirmed retired and not just "maybe" its retired.

Mentioned to my wife this evening that some of the streetcars were retiring ... and she said that reminded her .. she'd been on one of the old ones with red seats 2-3 weeks ago, and she thought she heard the operator making some announcements about the vehicle retiring. So that would be 4005 I would guess.

This morning I checked transee during the rush hour and I punched in 4000-4005 and only 4000-4004 showed in service so for sure 4005 is retired.

For goodness sakes, not every vehicle TTC owns makes it into service in rush hour. TTC has a 10-15% spare ratio. Some vehicles stay on hoists for repairs which can take up to a few month. Buses like 7940 haven't seen service since crashing into that plaza. It doesn't appear on Transsee in rush hour, it doesn't mean it's retired.

Thanks for the updates! Finally, a CLRV retired that I've actually photoed <_<:lol:

Do you know how much time the life extension is supposed to buy the ALRVs? How many are going through the program? Thanks!

When they all retire, you'll have more photos of retired streetcars. :D
