It's been a while since this forum was updated. I am wondering if it is known which additional MR-63s have been retired since the last update 3 months ago?

I know that the person who has the information on which MR-63s have been retired since May was on vacation. Just to follow up, has she responded with any information? Thanks in advance.

Why run MPM-10 on green line and mix it up? Garage Beaugrand has to maintain three different rolling stocks. They should all be on the orange line first.

There will only be 1 MPM-10 on the green line for testing purposes, no further deployment.  It has not yet been decided if the train will remain after the few weeks needed for testing (train control system, I think).  They may leave 1 train to keep green line operators up to date on training.  Train will probably be transferred to Youville for maintenance if required.

Now that there is technically a surplus of MR-63 with new MPM-10 deliveries, will the yellow line continue to offer 9 car service?
