4434 has reenter service on 505 After arriving May 04. May see 4435 and 4437 back in service this week as well

I was expecting to see 4438 sooner as it was loaded Feb 16 (110 Days now) follow by 4439 on Feb 26 (100 Days now) that was follow by 4402 on March 16 (82 Days now). Either CP taking longer to pickup or drop off or Alstom has slip in turn around.

4438 was sitting in Lambton to be delivery to TTC and could be at the loading dock now. CP pickup 4431 on June 3 after been loaded May 26

TTC should see 7 cars return this month with another 7 been ship.

I must say that I cannot keep up with which streetcars are here and which are away. and how many are still to be sent away.

MODS: Adding a link to this site as a STICKY might be a useful service to (at least) some of us. See https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Toronto_Transit_Commission_4400-4603
27 still to be ship to be fix as I noted a few posting back. After 2 years, 4471 and 4478 still have not been return from Thunder Bay that were supposed to be here last spring of 2020

4435 has reenter service after 40 day on 501

4438 has finally been off loaded after 11 day s sitting at the loading dock. No idea why it took TTC so long to off load the car.

Looks like 4460 will be taking 4435 spot on the flat.

4439 is sitting in Lambton to be delivery to TTC

4437 has reenter service on 504 after arriving May 13

4439 been sitting at the loading dock since Sat and TTC being slow off loading cars again..

4402 is sitting in Lambton yard.

Nothing was place on the flat that 4435 arrived on and very odd.

4460 still sitting at Hillcrest for unknown reason other than it maybe place on one of these 2 other flats after cars are off loaded.

4439 was off loaded Thursday with a smash window. The window has been replace and now in the yards at the Barns.

4402 was off loaded today after been off site 105 days and continue to see longer returns. TTC taking more than a day to off load a car when it hit the docks for some unknown reason.

The 2 flats that brought cars to Hillcrest left empty with none of the remaining 26 cars still to be done. No idea if this will also happen to the flat for 4402. 4402 flat was the same one that took it to QC.

Edit:
We could see 4422 and 4423 either next week or the follow as they been off TTC property 96 and 95 days so far.

4424 and 4420 should finish off July for delivery.

Was wrong on 26 cars still to see welds fix and it should be 28. Currently there are 9 cars off property and maybe why no cars are being place on the incoming flats so far.

With TTC planning on increasing streetcar service in Sept, looks like they will be doing a one to one exchange for the remainder of the cars in La Pocatiere, QC only. All the cars been return in the last month or so saw the flats leave empty from Hillcrest.

There were only 10 cars park in the parking lot at La Pocatiere, QC today. Either staff been cut back or on holiday.

The plant is on an angle to the main road and you can see nothing of the rear or test track including the siding to CN. Other than walking the CN track to the rear of the plant, impossible to get any shots other than walking about 500' from the road on private property. Using a drome you could get shots, but don't use them.

4438 reenter service on July 12

4422 off loaded July 19

4423 (117 Days) should be here now with 4424 (111 days) right behind it. Could be in service by Sept 1.

4428 is (111 Days) so far with 4429 at 78 days, 4430 at (76 days) and 4440 at (68 days). These cars will not enter service until late Sept and early Oct.

4402 could be in service come Sept 1 as well 4420 with luck.
