TTC CLRV/ALRV updates and discussion

Recommended Posts

I know that 4068 and 4105 are already marked as retired, but does anyone know what they’re being used for? They were both tracking at Leslie Barns earlier this week. My best guess would be that they’re maybe being used for parts for 4001, which also last tracked at Leslie. Anyone know for sure?

I was on 4085 going to Main this afternoon. It did not sound very healthy, lots of noises coming from the back. Didn't sound like it was just a bad compressor. Other weird clunks and noises.

Yup, I was on it last night on the 506. Something did NOT sound/feel right. Actually curious what it is ....

Anyone want to place bets on their choice for the last CLRV in service

I took a look at Hick's Car Works blog and 4034 has run under its own power at IRM on the short stretch of TTC gauge track built for the car.

I don't know if it's previously been said, but IRM got an additional pair of CLRV trucks to regauge to Standard gauge to allow 4034 to run on the IRM line.

Speaking of 4021, I've been told today is probably it's last day. 

Well I have had bad luck with my picks with 3 out of 4 being retired. I have a feeling that the TTC is retiring my favourite units and picks because I entered the contest, even though I am below the required age to enter. Oh well :rolleyes:.

 I will change my picks to 4048, 4081, 4089, 4123, 4124, 4133, 4155, 4165, 4178, 4184, 4187, 4193 making it to at least the 27 or 28. Me thinks that two of the following four units will make to final day: 4048, 4081, 4124 or 4178.

4021 was always a good unit, and I was planning to catch it tomorrow if it was out on Bathurst.

Transsee Trip History suggests Car 4021 was the last car on 506 on early yesterday (Thursday) morning. 

https://www.transsee.ca/trippath?a=ttc&id=153078595

It may have been the last CLRV on 506 (and the last to leave High Park at about 1 AM), but CLRVs continued on 306 all night - I think the last one was 4147 that was heading southbound on Coxwell at Lower Gerrard at 6 AM. https://www.transsee.ca/trippath?a=ttc&id=153100554

Also, 4178's last trip is listed as at 9 AM Thursday morning from Main to Broadview/Gerrard ... not long after I saw it eastbound at Greenwood. It's random runs since then, don't show up in Transee, suggesting that they were not scheduled runs. So perhaps the last proper 506 run was actually 4178 - it departed High Park around 7:30 AM.

i am going to assume that yesterday wasn't the last day of service for 4021 at all. 4021 is currently on the route 511 right now.

Which is very bizarre considering the source. Enjoy it while you can then.

4179 currently at College and Dufferin heading west. I would think that it’s on 506

In-service training.

According to Transsee, 4053 is currently on 506.

Yes it appears so. 4085, 4057, 4081, 4124 and 4170 are the Queen cars for today. 4178 hasn’t left Russell today.

Or the Flextys are being pieces of junk again

That's obviously what's happening. And I did see Car 4021 on 511 eariler so I can confirm it's not retired. Probably won't be as it has a half wrap for Christmas Music on CHFI.
