Toronto Rocket Subway Cars


Recommended Posts

I reckon 2 cars short of 3 complete trains, so 16 cars?

That's just my (very) rough estimation.

Oh I thought there were 2 sets. This including the first set, I think the first set went back? Thanks

AFAIK the first set (which is the second set, or 539x) is still on property. This leaves the 539x, 540x and 541x sets complete, and the 542x set is 4/6 delivered. Overall this gives 22 cars on property.

It should be about 3 1/2 train sets right now. IIRC, the 5391-96, 5401-06, 5411-16 and at least half of the 5421-26 set are currently on TTC property.

EDIT: Articulated beat me to it.

According to TTCs twitter account, the TRs are in the final stretch of safety tests and will enter service June 1st.

Same with Facebook.

Acording to the TTC on Facebook ...One new Toronto Rocket train will run "out of service" on the Yonge Line with other revenue trains to test platforms, doors, chimes, speed, signals, etc. This is necessary to ensure the train functions properly when it enters revenue service.
