There is 600VDC above. That would be safer would it? 😩

There’s no voltage potential if you’re not grounded.

Notice how all of the CLRVs listed to run tomorrow aren't running today at all...

I rode 5 CLRV today including 4069 4085 4179x2 4184 and 4193. I also photographed every unit in service again. 4179 was the last CLRV I rode on in revenue service. Also note that I have crossed all my list of CLRV for rides (with the exception of 4003 which is at Halton) with 4085 and 4184. Here are some select shots from today:

Also I have been hearing the location of where 4178 will be preserved from various people today. Anybody else hear it too?

@smallspy said that a group had plans to save 4178 on here some time ago.

Maybe whom ever is going to save it may not want to give the location away. We all know the story of Ex TTC 9424

Exactly. I am not going to say it obviously. But I will say that I think it’s going to the right place if they store it properly.

As It stands at this time, 511 cease to be an CLRV Line tonight, considering some drivers are saying they will be driving an CLRV on 511 Sunday.

6 CLRV's will be on Queen between 10-2 pm.

4001 will depart Wolseley Loop at 2:45 with another CLRV in front of it that will be a media car. Plan was to have the media car follow 4001.

A large number of people photographing and videoing 511 cars at Bathurst St Subway Loop.

Shot a video going north from Fleet to Bloor today as well having our last ride on 511 CLRV. Photograph a number of CLRV's

4051 still sitting on track 22 where it been the last few weeks.

4 cars on track 21 with headlights on and a 501 sign that I could see with 4001 at the front in the Russell Yard.

4091, 4094 and 4074 sitting on track 20 in the scrap line.

4178, 4048, 4110 and 4155 line up for 501.

4053, 4133 and 4024 next to the carhouse with 511 signs. 4164, 4104 cars sitting on the next track to the west with 511 signs with 4068 and 4057 behind them with Goodbye Logos on them.

I just stumbled upon this on YouTube... Does anyone know if the TTC ever consider running the CLRV's coupled up in two?

For the record keepers: the final revenue CLRVs were 4040, 4042, 4069, 4085, 4123, 4179, 4184, and 4193, with 4193 currently scheduled to be the last car out in service.

Some of my pics from today.

 

(For some reason, embedding these posts into the board degrades the already rather poor quality of an IG upload even more. If you actually go to the site the photos don't look nearly as trash as they look here I promise).

Just wondering can any one go on the CLRVs that leave wolsey loop or is it only for winners?

Yes anyone can go on the CLRVs from 10-2 from Wolseley to Greenwood. Only the one at 2:45 is for contest winners only.

Yes but not the location. And I have been hearing about it today.

Heard it from multiple drivers yesterday. Wouldn't be surprised if they're okay with it being public knowledge at this point, however, we won't know for sure for a few more weeks at least.

I think some people know, but it’s probably best to leave it as a surprise for the foamers that don’t. Not everyone needs to know now.

I've not heard anything, though it would be neat to see a static display indoors at an old reused streetcar yard - such as Wychwood, or Coxwell with the new city facilities going in there (library, police station, and TTC offices).

With 4178 having the art theme, Wychwood would be particularly brilliant.

One of the PCC's are supposed to go to Wychwood, but an CLRV could go there as well, but not 4178
