Unless the auto racks weren't moved lated this afternoon, 4534 will be delivery once the racks are remove.

Talking to the crews at Lambton Yard this morning, they said if the auto racks were to be move late in the afternoon as plan, 4534 would be drop off later in the day at Hillcrest.

If 4534 is drop off tonight and off loaded Thursday, one of the other 3 cars in Agincourt yard would be drop off on Friday. The other 2 will be off loaded next week. If not, it will happen when the racks are remove with all 3-4 being off loaded next week.

What on earth will we post about when 204 cars, 10 years, 936 pages and over 14,000 posts later we are done? It’s coming. Quite soon.
Next batch of 100 cars and maybe more

^If there’s an order, we talk about it. If there’s no order, we talk about the need for one. It’s all good.
Current thread started in 2006. Contract was signed in 2010 with deliveries of production vehicles in 2014.

With production vehicles for the next contract supposed to start in 2025, we are already 4 years late for that thread! :)

4530 Just enter service on 501 (501A) heading toward Broadview after 16 day. It was moved to the yard around 8 am.

4531 was also in the yard at the same time of 4530, but it in the service bay now. It almost looked we would see 2 cars today

I don't think you need to specify it was 501A that entered service on, we all know that if a Flexity is on 501, it's always between Neville and Humber and not on Long Branch :)

4531 has enter service on 510 (510A) after being here 13 days. It was ready to enter service on Sunday, but was held back.

4534 was on testing yesterday and seen in person by others, but not tacking yet.

I hope. 10 years is a long time, and if there's something to get out of this thread its that Bombardier should learn better next time from the 14,000 people

Just had a glance at next bus..............between 501, 505 and 506, I counted 88 non-flexities at 12:20pm. I assume almost entirely CLRVs.

That struck me as a tad high for mid-day service.

I know some of the flexities are back off the road getting fixes.......but still.

If those non-flexities are indeed all CLRVs, that means the vast majority of that fleet is out on midday duty.

505 is buses. 31 right now. 506 has 28 CLRVs right now - though in the morning it usually has 28 CLRVs and 8 buses. 501 has 41 CLRVs logged in right now (and 5 Flexities).

I've been surprised that we aren't seeing more Flexities out on 501 - it's been pretty static since New Years, despite 15 or so more Flexities entering service. Total right now (about 5 pm) is 85 Flexities, 69 CLRVs and 65 buses.

I didn't know they could even get 69 CLRVs out any more!

Good info.

Looking at this wiki:


It appears to me as though we have about 124 (I will stand to be corrected by those more knowledgeable than I ) on property.

(we appear to have 130 or so delivered and reached service, but some are off property for repairs)

That would suggest that only about 68% of the on-property fleet is in service for evening rush.

Am I wrong to feel that number is low?
