4207 out again this morning and 4221 is out now too. They’re not signed in to the 501 but this was the case with 4207 yesterday and I believe they are AM rush trippers

Seems strange that both cars would be not signed in, unless one of these AM trippers have not yet had trip data uploaded onto NextBus yet. But I presume this is good news for the fleet either way.

Meanwhile, here are a couple of photos of 4210 & 4251 in days gone by.

They are tripper runs. 4207 was in service westbound at Spadina

Edit: the reason why they weren’t noticed on a tracker is because they were RAD cars this morning

4221 is tracking at Queen and Jarvis now. It looks like it might be back on the pm rush. 4207 is on Dundas St E at River st, and idk why it is there now, since 505 is being operated by buses.

Still tracking there, not sure why

4221 is now signed in to the 501

Collision on Dundas hasn’t cleared yet. 4207 either involved in the collision or impacted by blocked track. Hopefully the later

4207 seems to have gone past Russell and is now going towards Neville Park. 4221 also went to Neville and back westbound and is still in service near Bathurst

Imagine that. First ALRVs in service in months, and one gets in a crash within a few hours.

I don’t believe it was in a crash as it seemed to be fine afterwards. But if that was the case yes it would be pretty bad luck

4207 is back on the road as of 8:15am. Most likely a rad car

Did you forget 4215? I didn't hear any news about it being scrapped yet.

No, I didn't see 4215. The lines at Russell were short enough that by walking around the perimeter of the property, I could photo every ALRV on the west side of the yard. If the car is still in Toronto, I didn't see it.

In other news, 4103 is MIA. I witnessed it push 4094, looping around Russell, yesterday, and then about half an hour later I came back and their positions had been reversed and 4103 had its pole pulled down. Last ran May 9.

4207 was the first vehicle that came upon an auto-auto accident on Dundas. There was a detouring CLRV that was caught behind it as well.

I'm surprised 4247 was sitting at Russell that long. Cars that ran in service longer were hauled away long before that one! It must have been a stockroom on wheels.
