Rick Leary said in January that while 505/506 were to be bustituted for all of 2018, it *might* be reversed in the fall.

While Leary may have said that early this year, service planning is operating on the expectation that streetcars will be back on 505 Dundas by September or October. 506 will take a bit longer as the vehicle requirements are so high.

The 511 is almost all Flexities today. 505 Dundas is next.

There are ZERO Flexities on 511 right now. 7C254E33-020E-47AD-AC2E-7A02675F59B9.png

Saw an actual (not testing) flexity on Queen today headed westbound from Dufferin as an actual 501. I was not expecting to see that until 2019.

That's odd. There were none listed out in either AM or PM rush. What time? Which car number?

I didn't catch it, unfortunately. It was at around 3 PM headed west in the direction of Roncesvalles. I only caught the "501" on the rear screen as it passed.

4466 has been both 501 and 301 on the Queensway as an in service car today. It was heading back to the Barns a little well ago on Queen as a 301 with the arrow pointing west before it became a dot.

4482, 4484 and 4466 have been going out to the Long Branch loop this week.

4483 is tracking now and lets see how long it takes 4485 that was off loaded today to become tractable.

4482-84 in the service bay.

I expect to see 4482 in service before 4466 since 4466 is redoing testing after a week in the service bay.

What car will show up by Friday?? 4486 or 4487 or none at all.
