Thank you for reply. This is what many don't realize: The TTC, Metrolinx and many Cdn agencies hide information that is freely available in other nations, even the US, even though Canada and provinces claim to make the information available. Accountability and 'Open Access' is a theory.

You are right, for a lot of companies the word "Open Access" is a vague concept. I'm sure in a few years that document will be public, that's usually what happens, but that's very off topic so.

You're absolutely right on all counts.

I am, however, not going to be the one to put my friend's career at risk by trying to push it out into the public now. When he's good and ready, sure. But not sooner than that.

4549 has enter service on 501 (501A) After arriving May 24
4552 has enter service on 512 After arriving June 3

Edit: 4552 was moved to Roncesvalles on Sat and thought it was for testing. It was sitting they every time I looked at it. The first car to enter service not from Leslie.

4555 is now tracking

Need to correct myself as to cars entering service. Until the Leslie Barns complex open, all the new cars enter service from Roncesvalles. 4552 is the first car since the opening of the Leslie Barn that enter service from another yard.

4556 is at Hillcrest to be off loaded Tuesday

Have any of the new cars been stored at Russell yet? or is it only Lesslie and Roncy?
Yes. Saw 3 501's at Russell on Sat and have seen cars at Roncy for the 512. Lots of new cars on 501 Sat and rode 2 of them with another behind us.

4552 enter service from there a few days ago.

Roncy also dispatches cars for the 504 since May.
