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.

I have seen 501 flexitys that are not simply returning to Leslie - as they are cruising into the Beaches. I'm wondering if the stops got moved in May as they have moved up 501 on the priority list (as the stops were to be moved only once Flexities started serving the 501). So far I've only seen them on weekends though.

Most likely 504 cars that are going to Victoria Park due to construction on Broadview.

You will find new cars in testing using all of Queen St in the east from time to time.

With Broadview close, not surprise to see cars out in the east end on Queen using both loops. Then you have cars using Kingston Rd to Brigham Loop

The tracker is show 504 Flexity cars using Cherry St Loop.

As it stands as I type this, all new cars still in testing in the service bays, except 4483 thats in the yard waiting for space. 4485 still not tracking.

BBD has meet Q2 delivery schedule with the off loading of X (4486/87) car today at Hillcrest and could see an extra car if one (4486/87) is off loaded tomorrow. If not off loaded tomorrow, will become a Q3 car.

Let me clarify... I've seen the past two saturdays around 9-9:30am two westbound in service flexities at Bellefaire in the beaches. I've also seen one on a Sunday going eastbound at Beech. You could tell they were in service as people where actively getting on/off them.

4486 was off loaded a short well ago at Hillcrest.

This makes 28 cars so far this year that have been delivery and one more than schedule. Do we count this extra car as part of Q2 or arriving ahead of schedule for Q3??

With the arrival of 4486, TTC now has 6 cars in various testing stage. 4466 could enter service this weekend; 4483 & 4484 by the end of next week; 4485-4487 around July 15-20.

Took 17 days to get 4482 into service after arrival.

4485 still not tracking and 4483 still sitting in the yard. The rest are in the service bays.

TTC is sure getting good at offloading those deliveries. Another one was set off last night and came off the flat car first thing this morning. Didn't get the number but if they are in sequence they would have 4485, 4486, and 4487 this week.

I am an annual total guy.....now that Q2 is over and the target of 27 is met we are measuring against the cumulative total at end of September (whatever that is) and we are already at 28.....and, honestly, looking forward to the day when we can rely on this continuing unabated so that we don’t have to treat each delivery like a papal visit ;)

504 cars don't go to Victoria Park on weekends. They turn at Woodbine Loop. And every time I've been down there this week they've all been CLRVs.

TTC report the target is for vehicles "Entered into Service", not deliveries. And it's 28. Though they should be close to meeting that, with 86 or 87 vehicles now arrived, compared to only 57 in-service at the end of 2017.

I'm not sure where this 27 number is coming from.

You have posted here and elsewhere a schedule from Dec 2017 or about that calls for deliveries of 27 by Q2 compared to monthly delivery in the past. This is a revised schedule.

Talking to Andy in Dec and before then, he stated the schedule was based on delivery on TTC property, even if it takes BBD an extra month here to complete the car.

Since Rick is calling the shots these days, he change that schedule to what you post and BBD will not met it based on deliveries so far this year.

Based on delivery and in service for this year, TTC has received 28 cars, with 22 in service as of June 29. 4483 was last seen 11 hours ago by tracker out in the yard and the rest that are tracking are in the service bays. Assuming the rest are in the service bay as well, or could be in the yard.

As Rick has stated in his monthly report, he doesn't see BBD meeting current schedule for this year.

Regardless, TTC still short around 100 cars and thats piss poor on BBD end.
