4406 is out on 511 this afternoon
After 90 days being here it finally has reenter service. Wasn't sure if it would see service today or tomorrow after it was moved from the service track to in service track early this morning when I posted updates..

4403 could be the next car follow by 4405. Lets see how long it will be for 4404 to start testing..

4401 has arrived back at Lambton Yard, not 4471, and will be moved over Hillcrest by this evening. 4471/4478 will be the last two to arrive.
That beat my June projection, but then gave them more time with a smaller crew. Car could be in service between March 28 to April 5 based on past car testing and off loaded Friday. This will close the book for new cars given the fact 4401 arrived June 17, 2013 as a prototype and only taken close to 7 years to be a production car in service.

I assumed it was 4471 in transit based on the past PR for it and why not here as stated??

Once 4471 & 4478 leave, either pink slips or move over to finish GO Coaches until they start working on Metrolinx cars for the signalling system.

It will be pink slips sadly for a lot of TB workers

4401 was off loaded today and it close the book on production cars been shipped to TTC. The car was first delivery June 17, 2013 as the 3rd prototype car and was shipped to Quebec May 14, 2018 for Welds repair before been shipped to Thunder Bay about a year ago. With it been off loaded today, we can see it in service somewhere between April 5 to 10 based on past delivery to service time frame. When the car enter service for the first time, it will be 2 month shy of being 7 years old.

No word on 4471 & 78 leaving Thunder Bay, but BBD PR suck as uselessly, since we should had seen 4471 long before now based on the PR that TTC was to see it very shortly.

With the arrival of 4401 today, it close the books on BBD failing to meet any schedule they have call for since day one for production cars and almost 3 months when all cars were to be here by Dec 31, 2019.

4403, 4404 and 4405 still in the service bay and none been out testing for over a week.

4407 was shipped to Quebec June 07, 2019 and 4408 was shipped to Quebec June 28, 2019 for welds repair and haven return so far. 4407 was last seen in this month in Montreal on its way to Kingston and no idea where 4408 is..

At the rate repairs are taking place, TTC will be lucky to have a full fleet by 2027, if then compare to 2022 date.

4505 yesterday returned to service also after being MIA nearly a year. On Sunday, streetcar service returns on 505 for the first time since Feb 2018, and using the Flexities for the first time.

Did it happen as I only saw buses at Dundas West Station on Tuesday??

4402 is currently on 509 after a week in and out of the service bay after a few days of trippers after returning from Hillcrest from getting VISION installed in it. It been MIA about a year before that. Unless something has change regarding the welds to be fix on it, it still has to go to Quebec.

4401 still not tracking after arriving on the 23rd. 4403, 4404 & 4405 still in the service bay after returning from Kingston/Quebec.

4404 is out doing its first test run on 509 after returning March 13. 4402 sitting in the yard the last 2 days after doing 2 days of full service. 4403 & 4405 in the service bay along with 4401 that still not tracking.

505 cars delay until April or when Broadview is done.
