Oh, CP showed up. Somebody forgot to leave the key to the gate under the mat. Or something like that. Anyways, the CP crew couldn't gain access, and the pickup had to be rescheduled.

... they could of just put the engine in drive slightly and popped the gate - there is more then enough weight in those locos :D

You don't do that with a switch lock. That's how you end up on the ground, and collect cherries.

A shame that 4466 went back under warranty - could use an LFLRV with a smushed in back end right now to slap its front two modules on the front of 4445! :D

(looking at the pics again - 4445 looks like it stood the hit pretty well - even the windscreen looks intact albeit that the lighting makes that hard to say for sure)

This thread is becoming the Dan Snide (self-perceived) Takedown Thread. More so than is typical in UT overall. I’m sure I’m not the only one mildly nauseous about this.

I've blocked him. He's a moron who doesn't know what he's talking about and pretends to. Its annoying.

Another new streetcar was spotted on a southbound CP train passing the Little Pic River area on Sunday.

Melbourne also mixes and matches there streetcar manufacturers instead of sticking to a sole manufacturer.
Melbourne uses 1435mm/2.65m/standard curve radii so that's a bit easier to seek tenders on than 1495mm/2.54m/11m curves

Hummm!!!! are we going to see 4476 in service tomorrow, as its sitting on track 2 in the yard and 4475 is currently on 509 in testing??? 4475 has been in testing the last 30+ hours non stop from what I have seen so far. It was out when I went to bed at 2 am and still out at 6:45 am. The few times I have looked today, been up on 512, out on the Queensway or 509.

Now, where are 4477 and 4478 that should be here now, with 4479 supposed to be in transit???

If 4476 does make it out tomorrow, it will be it will be day 13. 4475 is currently at day 25. Then it could be waiting for a service bay to open up for it.

29 days to have 4477-4487 ship to meet Q2 schedule.

If 4478, then 4477 should be there as well if 4479 was off loaded today.

One would have to say off hand that 4477 was off loaded Monday and 4478 Tuesday.

4475 was back out late today doing more testing. Its currently out on the Queensway.

Getting arrival dates these days is hard to come by.
