4123 is on 506, and yes for real this time....

1: Vehicle 4123 CLRV on route 506-Carlton0:51 ahead of 5:20:46AM. towards →East to Main Street Station past Norwood Rd on Gerrard St East Schedule details Vehicle History trip path

4110 has also joined it on the 506. Perhaps a few Flexities yesterday that suffered brake damage require some repairs. As I look at the TTC twitter alerts, it now says 25 streetcars suffered damage, not 7. Although I’m not sure the severity or what type of repairs are necessary. 501 is still bustituted this morning  

4178 also running on College as well, not signed in

Random Question - On the CLRVs - How do drivers activate/toggle track switches from the cab? 

Using the red button on the far left hand side of the dashboard.

Forgive me for being slow but it this an issue with the 501 itself or with the Flexities?

From what I've read from various media sources:

The damage was originally found on 7 cars on the 501 route. In all cases the damage was to the brakes on the left side. Since it was just on the left side and it was only vehicles that were on the 501 route, they pulled the cars as a preventive measure, thinking it could be a problem with the track. Overnight inspection revealed that a total of 25 cars had damage on the brakes  again on the left side, again suggesting its something specific to the 501 route. Inspection of the track of the entire 501 route failed to reveal anything that could have caused this so they're still investigating. Although this impacted the Flexity cars since its the only vehicle type used on Queen (excluding carhouse runs for Bathurst), TTC Spokesperson Stuart Green had indicated that this would have impacted the CLRVs if they were running on the route, making it unlikely that its isolated to the one vehicle type.

I'm probably missing some details.

Something is wrong with the rails (or debris on the rails) which is causing the streetcars on the 501 to get their brake systems damaged like shown above. They can't fix the problem currently since they have to pin point where exactly this is happening, which can be anywhere along the 501 and 501L.

I wonder what the results would be if the TTC cross referenced vehicle damage claims filed with the city's road department and see if there's been a location along the streetcar line with a lot of claims this week.  There's a possibility that whatever's doing this kind of damage to streetcars would probably be wrecking a lot people's car tires too.

Let's hope this is true because surely the bus fleet is getting flogged pretty hard with bustitition and with covering the endless subway maintenance projects

 

If that's what they want, that's good news. Partly because I want to see the Cs run on other routes if possible.
