This is an excellent example of how internet rumors start and people people believe them.

4417 was unloaded yesterday.

I don't necessarily believe that it's true, nor was I stating a fact. I just wanted to put it out there to see what others have to say about it. I think I remember reading here a little while back that 4417 was pretty much finished and that it just needed its trucks to be installed, so I kind of suspected that it would be here soon.

I'd quite like to photograph that. When they say it will be on 277 Queen, does that mean it will be parked on McCaul? Somehow I can't magine it will be blocking traffic on Queen :rolleyes:

They loop between Wolseley Loop and McCaul Loop, with 277 Queen being the pickup point. 4213 is currently the only car as 4249 is being unwrapped as we speak.

To insulate different parts of the overhead from another. It allows the TTC to only turn off the power in parts of the overhead rather than the whole system.

Makes sense, thanks!

http://ttca.sammdot.ca/track2.html?4213 Found it here.

Also turns out 4249 was just wrapped for promotion and not reconfigured like 4213.

Ah, good point, didn't occur to me to use that one :rolleyes:

Thanks for the info guys!

Can you share any info as to status of 4402?

Today is the first day that both 4402 and 4417 are showing up on this tracker:

4402 in Aurora and 4417 near Lake Simcoe :P:P (obviously the GPS's on both are out of whack, but the fact that they are trackable nonetheless makes me believe that they both have been delivered to the TTC).

Curious to how each operators were choosen to drive the nike streetcar. I know one of the operators who is driving this weekend and let's say very junior.

had to say quite, the inexperienced, I was on one of them and everyone in my car experienced motion sickness when we got off

im not questioning the operator's driving, im just curious more of how they got picked to drive it, thats all

Drivers don't get picked to drive certain vehicles, rather they are assigned whatever is at the front of the service line by the allocator. It's nothing more than luck of the draw as vehicles can be anywhere in the service line at the garage/yard.

Does it actually run along Queen W? I saw it short turn at the loop on Bathurst north of Queen.

I'd say thats more likely due to the lack of windows inside. Your brain is having much more difficulty processing and anticipating movement when you've got no visual frame of reference. Its like travelling in the back of a box truck.

Apparently there are ALRVs on the 509 this weekend. I saw 4216 IIRC last night at Fleet and 4214, 4224 and 4244 appear to be out today according to the Sammdot tracker. Is this going to be a regular thing, or is it just because of the NBA thing this weekend?
