4494 at Long Branch. @drum118 may be proven right yet about 94 being in service before 89!
4494 back out on the Queensway for more testing. I believe this is its 4th test run

4489 being sitting on the west side waiting for a service bay to open all day by the looks of things.

4495 in service bay.

What has become of our poor water (shit) damaged cars? Does anyone know the extent of the damage? @crs1026 speculated about what the path to rehab would be. Does anyone know the facts?
Saw a post on cptdb. Both had all their electronics damaged and are sitting on the dead lane at Leslie with all Presto equipment removed.

Damn. So close and yet so far. So many more on the streets, but gosh it would be great to have this pair and 4401 active in the fleet. At least those silly days from September 2014 watching the orphan pair 4400 and 4403 on the 510 are long gone.

4478 GPS has it in the King St underpass and was last seen there 19 days ago.

4471 shows up on 510 southbound at the Lake Shore and was last seen there 3 hours ago.

4489 still sitting on the east side of the service bay like it has all weekend. It has spent more time there than any other spot since arrival.

4494 & 95 in the service bay, with 4495 GPS having it all over the place where TTC doesn't run in the first place.

August flooding damaged nine new TTC streetcars
The torrential rain that inundated Toronto three weeks ago damaged a total of nine of the TTC’s expensive new streetcars, four of which have been taken out of service indefinitely to undergo repairs, the transit agency said Monday.

Two of the Bombardier-made vehicles were stranded in a flooded rail underpass on King St. West the night of Aug. 7, and sustained “severe damage” to their interiors, according to TTC spokesperson Stuart Green. At least one of the cars was swamped by what the TTC described the day after the storm as a mix of rainwater and “a quantity of human waste” from an overflowing sewer.

Green said both of those vehicles are being sent to a Bombardier facility in Kanona, New York to undergo “major cleaning and repairs as well as parts replacement.”
