They are using Queen as a test route to get to the Queensway or Bathurst these days.
He needs to visit Europe to not only see longer cars up to 56 meters, but coming every 5 minutes or less on schedule.Why are you asking this hypothetical question? Have you seen evidence that Flexities - which are in use in many cities - have inherent problems?
I've not seen very many at all - the odd mid-day car perhaps. There's none out this morning.
The Q2 target was to put 16 cars in service. At the end of Q1 there were 67 cars in service (the 67th car being 4468 which entered service on March 21).Still leaves 4486 to be ship by this weekend to make Q2 schedule
If 4480 and 4481 are indeed in service, then they now have 80 cars in service. To meet the Q2 goal of 16, they only have to get 4466, 4482, and 4484 in service with 11 days to go - which isn't impossible, given they all arrived last week.4481 getting ready to leave the yard. It was out earlier as a 501 in service car on Queen
27 cars are due by June 29 for this year schedule.The Q2 target was to put 16 cars in service. At the end of Q1 there were 67 cars in service (the 67th car being 4468 which entered service on March 21).
So to meet the Q2 target, they need 83 cars in service. If 4466 has been returned, neither 4484, 4485, nor 4486 need to have shipped to still make Q2 (though it would make the 15-car Q3 target tougher).
If 4480 and 4481 are indeed in service, then they now have 80 cars in service. To meet the Q2 goal of 16, they only have to get 4466, 4482, and 4484 in service with 11 days to go - which isn't impossible, given they all arrived last week.
Close as it matters, they've made their Q2 goal. They might even exceed it, catching up on Q1 where only 10 of 12 cars entered service.
And with only 15 to enter service in Q3 (two of which have already been received), the Q3 goal seems doable as well (presumably the summer shut down is in there somewhere).
Whether they achieve a 2019 goal of 83 cars (about 21 cars per quarter) probably depends on whether they can do 21 cars in Q4. Which hardly seem onerous, given they are on track for 16 in Q2, without the Kingston assembly line coming into play.
This should play well for the July report to the board, on whether or not to recommend the additional 60 cars.
Either way, it's fantastic work by Bombardier. Only 27 cars entered service in 2017, and 17 in 2016. We've already had 22 cars enter service in 2018, with 5 more already here or apparently en route (4483 and 4485)!
That's the Q1+Q2 target for vehicles in service (presumably on June 30).27 cars are due by June 29 for this year schedule.
The CEO report says "in service", not "on property".5459 was the last car to be off loaded onto TTC property for 2017. 4459 + 27 = 4486 by June 29 on TTC propert.
I've seen photos of 4485. I don't know 4483 is in transit, though others might.We know 4483 in transit and 4485 maybe as well.
It wouldn't be in service however in time to meet the 16 in-service during Q2 target that's mentioned in the TTC CEO's report.This leaves 4486 to be ship by this weekend by my accounting to be here next Friday at Hillcrest.
A lot was exaggerating. They did have 501 on the display though.I've not seen very many at all - the odd mid-day car perhaps. There's none out this morning.
Where did you see this?
It's probably 504, 509, 510, 512, and 514 cars, that all have to run down Queen East, and even Queen West to Bathurst to get to their routes, from the barn on Leslie south of Queen. Many are signed as 501s - and there's a never-ending stream of them at 6 AM or so, as service begins.
