All the new wiring is backward compatible with trolly poles.
Everything I have read says that this is not true - or will not be true once all the 'frogs' are removed. (The problem is not the wire, it's the connectors', though when they finish everything the wires will not be straight - to spread the contact area all over the pantograph - so poles could probably not cope.) .)

There are some intersections which are no longer trolley pole compatible. Two such examples are McCaul & College and Victoria & Queen. I assume any intersections that are yet to be wired like Queen & Roncesvalles will forgo trolley compatibility.

4448 has reenter service on route 505 after been off loaded Feb 8 for 32 days

4441 is now in the Russell carhouse and it was moved there on Friday.

Still waiting for 4449 that was loaded on Dec 3 now at 99 days.

4451 was shipped 10 days after 4449 now at 89 days.

May see 4452 here by month ends if CP is not on strike.

4449 and 4451 are now in Lambton yard and came in on the same train.

Depending on CP as to what they do this weekend, its possible one car could get delivery to Hillcrest any day before the shut down or sit in the yard until work starts again.

Since 4449 is over 105 days so far, it could be the first or last car drop off for off loading, 4458 and 4459 will be the next cars to go if following number remains. This will leave 7 more car to be ship with 2 in May and 2 in June at this time. At this rate, it will be year end for all cars are back on TTC property..

It is possible a few extra transporter could show up to speed things along.

4458 flat was pull from the train with issues,

4441 has reenter service on 510 after been off loaded Feb 23.

A few days ago, the tracker had the car sitting on a transporter at Hillcrest which was odd with CP going on strike and why was it been sent back to Quebec again.

TTC personal at the Leslie Barns will be busy again working on cars from Quebec starting Tuesday if 4451 is off loaded Monday that is sitting at the dock now.

Will 4449 be next or 4452 or 4454 as they are sitting in Lambton yard with 4449 been the longest for been off site?? 4449 is now at 114 days off site with 4451 at 104.

Be very surprise if all 4 cars are off loaded this week with 4459, 4460, 4461 and 4462 taking spots on the retuning flats.

4454 is now the fastest turning around car at 67 days.

Only 4 more cars to be ship off site come end of April, but more like mid May

4451 was finally off loaded today after being off property 108 days. Based on past off loading, it will move to the Leslie Barns on Friday.

4459 is now on the flat going for a trip.

Surprise TTC has taken this long to off load 4451 considering it could had been done on Monday and off loaded another car this week as well depending how fast CP is for moving cars.

At this rate, one car a week with 3 plus waiting in Lambton to to off loaded.

CP Finally pickup 4459 on Sat that was loaded Mar 31, but never drop off one of the other 4 cars sitting at Lambton.

4449, 4452, 4454 were sitting at Lambton before Mar 31 with 4455 showing up this week to join the other 3
