4448 is finally off loaded after arriving in Toronto Dec 27. It wasn't off loaded when I looked this morning.

4456 could take 4448 spot for a trip as it next in line number wise.

4441 will be off loaded next week at current rate.

4445 was out testing yesterday.

4443 has reenter service on 512 after returning Jan 19 (33 Days)

Wouldn't be surprise if 4447 gets delivery first over 4441 like the other cars as it arrived in Lambton 2 days ago. 4441 been sitting in Lambton 55 days

CP real slow servicing TTC theses Days and could because of lack of crews as 4456 still at Hillcrest that was loaded Feb 8 12 days a ago

CP finally pickup 4456 on Monday that was loaded Feb 8.

CP then drop off 4441 that been sitting at Lambton since Jan 21, It was off loaded today.

In turn, 4457 was loaded on to the flat that 4441 was on.

9 more cars to be ship.

Will we see 4447 off loaded this week with 4458 taking it spot?

CP has pickup 4457 and has drop off 4447 at Hillcrest. Did not see another car in Lambton Yard unless block out of view. 4458 could be going for a ride this coming week if numbers remain in order.

Will we see 4449 next at 86 days or 4451 at 76 days??

4447 was off loaded today with 4458 taking its spot on the flat.

This leaves 8 more car to be ship for repairs. 2 of them could be gone by next week depending when CP picks up 4458 and delivery 4449 and 4451.

When do you estimate that all the 'repair cars' will be back here? (I assume the two flood damaged cars are still not here, and may just be replaced?)

They should be all back by Sept, but not all in service until Oct

I have being saying 4471 and 4478 will not show up until 2023 as protype of an update model based on TTC requirement they want change from the current fleet as well for the next 60 cars.

It very possible those 2 cars could be scrap and be replace as part of the 60 new cars.

When they entre service again, they will be the youngest cars for service and milage of the existing fleet.

Wonder which car will be part of the Beach(es) parade in April that will be part of the largest TTC Heritage fleet in the parade to date.

I thought the 60 new cars were pretty much the same specifications, with very minor changes that wouldn't be close to needing a new prototype.

Do you have the new TTC requirements? What's driving the need for a prototype?

Haven't seen anything what TTC is looing at, other than hearing from various sources.

You have Alstom in the picture now who may want to change certain things as well doing thing different.

I say protype so TTC can see what the changes look like as well how they work before doing full production on the new 60 cars.

Will have to wait tell 2023 to see what is new if it can be seen.

We will have to wait until 4471, 4478 and 4604 show up to see if any changes have taken place visible to the eye in 2023

Have they added pantographs to the Peter Whoit and PCC, CLRV and ALRV or can they run non-pantograph streetcars on that section of Queen?
No idea
