Relevant quotes:

"He believes he's leaving Thunder Bay when the plant is in a good position to receive new orders to supply the mass transit needs of the Greater Toronto Area.

"There is a 60-car LRV order that is out there, and that's one we are working on, and that's what brings the workforce back ... when we get thse big orders that have cars that have a lot of 'build,' a lot of hours in it. That recalls a lot of people. In fact, our line is still set up. We have kept it up because we're hoping to get that," he said."

And

"We have a Metrolinx LRV contract. We are working with one of our other sites and we are helping to complete that way. We are building roof units, we are building bogies, we are doing a lot of the finishing activities. And we have the ventilators. The site is well-respected for what they do now, and gets work because of the way they perform now," Black said."

Flexity Freedom mockup for sale

Interesting. Ottawa used the cab module of their similar mockup to construct their training simulator.

could be being switched onto a train Lampton Yard is about 1 km or so to the west of there, as is the CP North Toronto Sub - MacTier Sub - Galt Sub junction.
