Odd that it in service now considering it was still on the service track last night. Could been there because of paperwork, but regardless of the issue, its in service 35 days after arrival. .

Now to see how long 4405 & 4406 take to reenter service as well the arrival of 4404, 4407 & 4408. Then, what 7 cars will next to be ship to Quebec for welds repair.

Then there is 4471 & 4478 still to be ship from TB that will be tested before reentering service.

Once 4401 arrives and enter service, it will close the book for cars entering service until the next batch of NEW cars are order and ship which could be 2025+.

I believe the list of MIA cars is supposed to be down to 4 cars from 20+ that are in service.

4405 and 4406 should be in service later this week, all cars available for service will be in service this week per CEO's Report

I worked in that station for over two years. The cross braces you see (flimsy looking ones) are "safety braces" lol for when were routing electrical wiring and setting up the cove equipment. I miss working on the lrv, had a awesome team lead and fellow station members. The people seen in this image took over that station as of dec 6

So four have come back, of which one is in service, and no more have left yet. At this rate, it'll take about 16 years to finish this work. 4402 seems to be tracking at Bedford & Lowther, has it gone to Hillcrest? It's been languishing at Leslie for the past 9 months or so.

You mean it will be the end of the life cycle for these cars being fix. Taking a year plus for a number of cars so far from time been loaded for Quebec until they arrive back at Hillcrest compare to the plan 19 week turn around.

February 20, 2019 saw 4403 loaded for Quebec.

So 4404, 4407 and 4408 are still to be return to TTC. Then 4407 is most likely still in Montreal due to tracks been close. No idea on 4402 since I don't track them after they enter service or have arrived, but not reenter service.

4405 & 4406 still in the service bay, with 4406 last seen 3 hr ago and 4406 in different locations. 24 days for 4405 and 69 days for 4406 since they were off loaded. 4406 now has the longest time from arrival to reentering service so far.and counting.

With cars going to Kingston first sounds like they are putting the car back together there than in Quebec.

Guess TTC waiting for the last 3 cars to return before shipping anymore cars to be fix.

Can somebody help my geeky curiosity - does BBD Millhaven have a rail connection or are they trucked? I looked at Google satellite and can only see what appears to be a pulled up connection.

-4405 and 4406 look to be entering service either tomorrow or this weekend
-4402 did not go back for welding, but has been out of service pending new axels but looks like the repairs it needed have been fixed, meaning it will re-enter service soon

Milhaven has a rail connection, and a level loading dock onto which they can load and unload LRTs. The old connection that you see on Google Maps has been rebuilt.

What happen to 4405 & 4406 as they aren't in service at this time?????

4402 is out testing on St Clair.

4405 like other cars before it should enter service in about 40 days after arriving after been fix. It arrived February 27, 2019 and is tracking.

4406 could be in service this afternoon or tomorrow as it now sitting in the yard at the front of the line after arriving Dec 16, 2019 or 76 days so far.

4403 is in the service bay

4402 is now in the Beaches testing, and 4403 was moved around the yard next to 4406.

4402 at Hillcrest for VISION installation is mind blowing, considering the car hasn't seen service in almost a year and still has to go to Quebec for Welds repairs. Based on the fact that the 19 week turn around is more like a year with TTC having to spend another 2 months dealing with the car before it can reenter service, how much more time is TTC staff going to waste to get VISION back to working order once the car returns from Quebec on top what taking place now??? Far better taking a car that doesn't needs welds fix to have VISION install in it than 4402.

4405 GPS been off line for a number of days
