4580 was off loaded on Friday

Some ppl want to know and keep track when cars enter service as well get off loaded and I am one of them.

You last saw an ALRV was on Sept 3 and that last you will see them in service as they are officially retire, 4.5 years later than plan. Go to 506 & 511 and you will see CLRV's on those lines and that will be it. Unless things change over the next few months, CLRV's will be retire come Jan 1st 2020.

At this point, the only new car we may see for the rest of the month will be 4577, unless some thing is release from TB this week.

Latest info is, both cars sent to the US are ready to return. That's effectively two more cars Flexities available.

Will TTC require some pre-service testing before putting them back into service? I'm guessing yes given the nature of the work.

It's possible they will go directly to another Bombardier plant (T Bay, La Pocatiere, or Kingston) before returning to Toronto. I'm sure there will then have to be testing in town. At least they are finished with whatever work was needed in NY.
