4527 did a wild in service 501 test eariler tonight that first included a trip to McCaul Loop via Queen, followed by Fleet Loop, and then it went up to St. Clair. It's back at Lesile now however, still signed onto 501 for the ghost of a very wild test run

How many more left to deliver?

Isn’t there talk of a second order?
Yes there talk of a second order and only going happen after this one is completed, as well the out come on damages. It has to be place in the 2020 and on going budgets before a tender can be place for it. Most likely extra funding will have to come from the Fed's, since Ford will not fund it and would be surprise if he did without strings attach to it.

TTC has 127 cars on the books at this time with 3 more come Monday currently in testing with luck. With 2 to be delivery this week and one next week, BBD still has to ship 70 more cars this year. 4401 is of the 70 that is in Quebec for rewelding and been rebuilt as a production car and may show up in June.

4527 arrived March 4 and could see service March 16
4528 arrived Feb 22 and could see service any day
4530 arrived March 7 and could see service March 19
