Toronto Transit Commission 4000-4005, 4010-4199 are Canadian Light Rail Vehicles built from 1977 to 1980. Cars 4000-4005 are classified as L1 and were built by SIG in Switzerland. Cars 4010-4199 are classified as L2 and were built by Hawker Siddeley in Canada. Note that instead of cars 4006-4009, Articulated Light Rail Vehicle 4900 was constructed as a demonstration unit.

The CLRVs provide service on routes 502 Downtowner, 503 Kingston Rd, 504 King, 505 Dundas, 506 Carlton, 509 Harbourfront, 510 Spadina and 512 St. Clair. They also provide service instead of ALRVs on routes 501 Queen, 508 Lake Shore and 511 Bathurst.

History

After the TTC elected to retain their streetcar network, they sought to purchase a new vehicle to replace the aging PCC streetcars. The TTC worked with the province of Ontario's Ontario Transportation Development Corporation (OTDC) (later Urban Transportation Development Corporation (UTDC)) to design the CLRV.

The first of the five SIG-built CLRVs was delivered December 29, 1977 with the final delivered July 13, 1978. The cars built by Hawker Siddeley were delivered from April 24, 1979 to November 19, 1981. The first car entered service on September 30, 1979 on the 507 Long Branch.[1]

Modifications

Most of the passenger windows were sealed when the cars were new. Only a few had a tip-in transom for ventilation. This would soon prove insufficient, and new sliding windows and vents were soon installed from 1981 to 1982. The CLRVs were also originally equipped with couplers. In the interest of pedestrian safety, a skirt was installed over the couplers by 1985. By 1988, the couplers were removed.[2]

One, if not all, of the SIG-built CLRVs had single seats arranged at an angle facing the aisle until the rear door, after which they were arranged in a 2+2 configuration. This was the same layout that appeared on the mock-up that was displayed to the public. The remaining cars had the present seating configuration with 2+1 seating in the front half instead. Some cars have had their seating reduced with a 2+1 layout to the rear in an effort to create more standee space. Red seat backs, modesty panels, and ceiling vents, still distinguish SIG-built cars from the Hawker-built cars.

By the early 2000s, the red vinyl seat inserts were replaced with synthetic wool inserts. In 2006, 4041 was retrofitted with air conditioning using a Thermo King LRV HVAC unit. Cars 4019 and 4134 both became pilot cars for LED exterior lighting around early 2009. Car 4019 has all-LED exterior lighting except for the headlights, while 4134 has all exterior lighting except for the centre headlight. The rest of the CLRVs were retrofitted beginning a year later. Installation of operator barriers began around Spring 2010.

Throughout 2014, the first three seats on the open side of the streetcar received blue inserts as part of a fleet-wide modification to better denote courtesy seating. The TTC committed to having Presto payment available on all streetcars by the end of 2015. As of June 2015, one car was fitted with Presto readers as a trial. By September, installation commenced on the remainder of the fleet.

Retirement

The first CLRV to retire was 4063. In 2005, it was selected to be the prototype for the CLRV overhaul program. After completely stripping the car down, it was found not to be worth the expense and the overhaul program was cancelled in 2006. Car 4063 remained at Hillcrest until March 2009, when it was sold for scrap.

In 2015, the remaining CLRVs began receiving an overhaul as needed to remain in a state of good repair while the new LFLRV streetcars are delivered. The TTC had originally expected all CLRVs to be withdrawn from service in 2018. However as deliveries of the LFLRVs continue to fall behind schedule, the TTC decided to embark on a major overhaul of 30 CLRVs in 2016. This program is set to be complete by early 2018.[3]

As of November 2017, 57 CLRVs have been retired.
