The ALRVs have been dropping like flies lately, and it's been pretty much determined that the rehabilitation program some of them went through werent a success and didn't yield the desired results.So is the TTC still putting ALRVs in service, or are they more or less retired? I’ve been watching the cars come into service along Queen and King, and I’ve only seen one ALRV out of at least two dozen streetcars.
If this is a normal thing, we might not see any more ALRVS by winter (the A’s are especially unreliable in the season)
At this point, it is very likely that any ALRV that suffers significant damage from an accident, or has some sort of major component failure will be retired. There are 21 left according to the TTC, so we will be very lucky if we see them survive past the upcoming winter.
