For the record, that port is not for the drawbar. The drawbar gets connected to the car by removing the square hatch on the "bumper" immediately above it.

That port is to plug in a special electrical connector to disengage the parking/emergency brakes when being towed.

4489 has done its first day of testing since arriving July 10, 2018. It is on Queen heading to the Barns, east of Broadview

4493 testing on King St

4492 out in the lake and most likely being ready for service Sat.

Thanks for these updates. I saw 4493 on Lake Shore headed toward Long Branch yesterday.

4489 has just headed into Hillcrest. Operator break maybe?
They take a break there most times on the 512/511 testing.

4489 is still having GPS issues to the point its now north of Old Derry Rd in Mississauga. All over the place yesterday.

4492 being sitting at the east end of the service bay outside for the last 30 hours.

4493 It was going out for testing this morning when I looked at it and in the service bay

I saw 4489 went down King Street, Queensway and Lake Shore then back up around 5-6pm sign Not in service today. It's just not tracking very well.

511 should be all Flexity for the Ex and other major events at the Ex.

4492 is sitting at the front of track 2 and will be going out early tomorrow for service based on that location at this time.

4489 still having GPS issues or what every causing it. It currently located at 401 & Hurontario, but in the service bay.

4494 should be in service before 4489 that is currently in the service bay. Sometime this week for service.
