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.

I can confirm this as I just rode on it 3 times up and down Bathurst. Had a nice driver

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

4184 has joined as well. Currently 6 cars on the 501 and 4053 still on the 506.

Apparently 4133 is having brake issues and is now parked at Wolseley.

Edit: Looks like it's going back to Russell on Queen.

Edit 2: And now 4069 is circling on the spare track as Not in Service.

A few more photos from today

And this special sticker on 4021

I ended up riding on 4021, 4069 and 4104 today. There was a drunk couple on 4021 that started doing karaoke for what ever reason, so I had to ride it back down to get a better ride. Also note that 4069 has a different bell then the normal one.

I noticed that 4069 actually went past the loading space. It looked like the driver was having trouble with something, but I didn’t notice anything odd while I was riding it.

Anyone got any tips about taking pictures on CLRVs?

Wait for the driver not to be busy or for them to leave. That way they won’t ask you what your are doing. But in general most of the drivers I was talking to today were nice. Also at either Bathurst station or especially Exhibition loop, make sure there are no other cars moving around. I made sure to look both ways to get shots of 4021 at Exhibition loop, as I didn’t want to get hit by a passing 509 car.

For inside photos, I would recommend Exhibition loop. There usually isn’t any people there, and if there are they don’t show up for a bit. This usually works if you have a friendly driver who doesn’t mind you taking interior photos.

Thanks

Also how can tell if a driver is nice?

In my personal experience this what I have seen: If they spot you taking photos, they will usually ask you what you are doing, and they may change the roll sign. The driver of 4021 inquired as to what car was sent down to the U.S so I showed him the photos and video that was posted on the website.

It would appear 4069 was really behind in it's scheduled time to leave, so it was waiting for it's next run it could leave on

CLRVs running today are

511 4085, 4155, 4069, 4123, 4024, 4147 & 4048

506 None

All per Transsee

It's possible there might be some on 506 later. Depends on the Flexity situation. And of course around the noon hour, more cars will go onto 511 and 506.

Take this with a grain of salt, but transsee is reporting 4021 in the back of the deadline, last seen 22 minutes ago. If it was the last day yesterday, I gave her one final and proper send off at Exhibition loop, as I recorded it exiting as the driver rang the gong multiple times. Glad I said goodbye to an old friend:(.

Looks like more went out:

4024 4048 4069 4074 4085 4104 4123 4147 4155 4187 on 511

4057 4081 4124 4178 4179 4184 on 501

Also in addition to 4021, 4091 and 4100 also are in the deadline, and stopped reporting data on December 6.

Anything is possible, but the schedule only calls for 122 Flexities on Sunday afternoons, compared to 140 on Saturdays, and 149 for the weekday AM peak.

They delivered on Friday, and had only one 506 during the Thursday AM peak, so 122 should be easy to do.  I'd expect AM peak next week would be the likeliest time to see another CLRV on 506 if it's being driven by the Flexity situation.

Russell was empty today of all cars except track 20 with CLRV 4071 & 4143 waiting for the scrap yard pickup. Track 22 saw 4053, 4094, 4100, ?, 4091 on it

Caught 4124, 4081 and 4057 on 501

4021 is now at Leslie Barns.

It also appears that 4068 has returned to Russell after a long time at Leslie. 4105 also last tracks at Leslie still.

Maybe 4068 will return to service, and I was thinking given that 4021 is the oldest CLRV that has been active till now, maybe they'll preserve it.

If if 4133 was really having brake issues, could this also be one of those affected cars now as it was one of the units that was sent along queen to test after that track problem. Could have been a late spotting of this problem? Or just the fact its just broken now and not related at all to the queen problem.
