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

4528 that has been in the service bay over a week or so is out testing and currently sitting in Russell Yard. It been here 20 days so far.

4527 was out testing last night.

4530 has been out testing most of the day so far and heading to St Clair at this time.

4531 was supposed to be off loaded today.

I doubt the media cares about the orders unless they are parked in the Portlands enroute to Alexandria.

Or on route to Fordland! The best amusement park ever, designed by our supreme premier Doug Ford. It's located in the Congress Centre and will be open for "lovers of conservative cost cutting policies while having fun" by 2021! We'd need 90 Flexities, 1 CLRV and a Orion VII Event Support bus ( it's supporting Ford's event! ) for scheduled capacity

4531 is tracking and out testing for the first time on Queen at Spadina Ave. Not bad for being off loaded Mar 12.

Looks like 4528 is having break issues, as it was out testing the yard the last few days on track 21 running back and forth before going in the service bay every so often. It just left the yard and going west on Queen for testing. This is on top the 2 days of testing before this, after being in the service bay for over a week. March 4 was its last test run on 501 and being out. It has been here 24 days so far

Looks like 4530 is being prep for service early this coming week.
