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.

4404 is now tracking outside of Toronto and 4403 and 4405 haven't tracked in sometime. Not sure why 4401 isn't tracking, it's been here for almost two weeks now. And yes, no 505 cars until late April.

4404 is out for a test run, has been to Ex Loop and now by Roncesvalles.
Been out every the last 4 days testing.

4402 in service on 506 all day and the first time since March 27.

4403 hasn't been tracking for the last few days and 4405 wasn't tracking as well, but is now.

4401 up north some place since location changes. At this rate, this car may not enter service until April 23 and depends went testing starts.

As a note, happen to looked at a few photos of Broadview from 2019 and a few shows the old overhead on the curves that need to be replace before 505 can run. In 2018, both Dundas and Gerard Intersection were rebuilt along with the overhead as well the overhead to Queen. The question is how long will 506 be in service before being remove for track and overhead work schedule for High Park area on Dundas?? it will also effect the 505 as well.

Updating some photos and need to recheck date for 4403
It arrived May 31, 2014 and enter service Aug 31, 2014.
Shipped to Quebec Feb 20, 2018 and return Feb 27, 2020. Still in the service bay.

Either I have the wrong year when 4403 was shipped to Quebec or it took close to 2 years to fix the welds. Then it been 37 days since it was off loaded and nearing the 45 days to reenter service and can't recall if it done any testing so far. Do I have wrong dates for 4403??

Then, it been been 59 days since 4405 was off loaded.

Looks like 4401 is about to do its first test run today, as it in the yard now.

4404 looks like it will be doing another day of testing today as well.

4402 doing a 2nd day of service on 506 and the problems with it maybe fix now.

The CEO report states that Mean distance between failures is at 50, 700 compared the target of 35,000 Contractual, but operational is at 13, 740, with no target number at this time. An average of 5 car road call or change off compare to 2.4 target. These are Dec numbers. Seams to be an operational problem for the fleet.

It been reported that 4401 was supposed to have done a test run on Friday, but been in the same spot since it was moved to the yard every time I have looked at it. It went back into the service bay late Sat and still there. I guess we will see the 40 plus days for the car like all the cars that have had their welds fix, considering the car was rebuilt as a production car that arrived March 23, 2020 and 13 days so far.

4405 still on the service track that arrived February 3, 2020 and 62 days so far.
4404 doing its 7th day of testing after arriving March 13, 2020 and 23 days so far. It has the best chance of reenter service before the 40 days plus.
4403 In the service bay still after arriving February 27, 2020 and 38 days so far.
4402 out on 506

4401 is tracking currently in the service bay, and might go testing tonight judging from this. Meanwhile 4404 is out and about going down to Long Branch for it's 9th day of testing.
