4540 has spent a week in the service bay and out side on the west end for most of the day waiting for another bay to come open.
4541 has spent a fair amount of time in the service bay the last week and does the odd short test and back into the service bay. Currently heading to St Clair for testing.
4574 is doing more testing now than last week, but in the service bay now with the GPS lost.
As for leaks in the cars, its from the AC system and shouldn't be taking place at all.
With 4545 shipped, leave 56 more cars to be ship over the next 8 months for 7 cars a month. 24 cars have been shipped this year so far at a rate of 6 cars a month. At that rate, BBD will break all past deliveries, with is year seeing 10 more cars than last year, but will not meet this year schedule unless Kingston start pumping out 2 cars a month, not like the 2 cars for the year so far.
Remember they have to pump out cars for Edmonton too. It's possible that they are not feeling a need to rush given the settlement that was done in January may include some flexibility into 2020.Kingston be going slow..... slow....... slow..... slow... Indeed 6 cars a month is a new milestone for certain and this has never been done before by BBD.
Bombardier is doing very well, but they've delivered more than 6 a month! They delivered 8 in April (including the 1 from Kingston) and 7 in March (all from TB).Kingston be going slow..... slow....... slow..... slow...

Bombardier is doing very well, but they've delivered more than 6 a month! They delivered 8 in April (including the 1 from Kingston) and 7 in March (all from TB).
I think the record was 10 in December 2018 (1 from Kingston) which for TB ties the 9 in June 2018.
They delivered 17 in Q2 2018 and 20 in Q4 2018, which is close. They only delivered 16 in Q1 2019 (which is to be expected with the Christmas shutdown, etc.).A sustained 6 per month, especially for the first 4 months of a calendar year, I don’t think they’ve hit anything like that before.
CEO May Report
Currently, the 504 King, 509 Harbourfront, 510 Spadina and 512 St Clair are fully served with lowfloor streetcars. We began deploying these streetcars on the 501 Queen in January 2019. We expect that all service on Queen, between Humber Loop and Neville Park Loop will be operated by lowfloor streetcars by early summer. Subsequent routes for streetcar deployment will be: 511 Bathurst (summer 2019), 501 Queen (Long Branch Loop to Humber Loop, fall 2019), 506 Carlton (late 2019), and 505 Dundas (spring 2020).

The MDBF for the LFLRV fleet in March was 13,223 kilometres. This is a decrease of 1,554 kilometres from the same time last year and a decrease of 81 kilometres from last month. The overall LFLRV MDBF remains below the 35,000-kilometre target.
The overall number of failures in March remained consisted with February. Slight increases in brake, high voltage and train control management system failures resulted in a small decrease in MDBF.
No report on the ALRV fleet and since they haven't seen service since Jan, will say they are retire now. Some how, TTC still wants to have only 161 cars in service daily, yet ridership increase say there should be more.
