I took a short video at Bayview yesterday. With the escalators, the trains and the announcements it really felt like an active transit station yesterday afternoon. I can't wait for the system to final

 This leaves us with the following as missing, or on other sections of the alignment:

1101 - 1103, 1106, 1108 - 1113, 1119, 1127 - 1129 and 1134 (15 trains)

I spotted 1103 around Hurdman on February 14th (just found the note I made of it).

Noted on my side. Since I don't want to spam updated listing, I'll put it as part of the next update.

I was out earlier today at Tremblay Station around 12pm, and I saw the following trains pass: 1112, 1124, 1131. I was only there for 5-10 minutes train spotting. 

They seemed to be operating at a 5 minute interval in both directions.

Seen on Reddit earlier today, interesting observations.

Basically, max track speed would be 90km/h, not 80. Today 20 vehicles were on the line at the same time, and they are back to a higher speed profile. So it seems we are at a point where the system can run sufficient vehicles at the same time (regular operation will be 15 "vehicles"), and able to function at the time intervals expected!

Spotted #1104, #1103, #1122, #1129, #1116, #1112, #1125 around 9PM Thursday. I don't really know where we are in the countdown of trains but I feel like 12 Days end-to-end  testing  testing isn't far away.

Spotted the same units earlier during the day, with 1105 and 1107 coupled. The count I am maintaining is now at 24 vehicles spotted, ten missing.

The pace today was really impressive, easily a train every 4 minutes. Unfortunately, forgot to keep count of how many concurent units, but almost all of them had the passenger info systems on, and the “next train” display functioning.

 

Units not yet spotted on the alignment as of March 21st.

1101, 1102, 1106, 1108, 1110, 1111, 1119, 1127, 1128 and 1134.

Hi there,

I only want to ask if you think that all the trains have been built by now.

I am trying to evaluate where D-Day, or rather O-Day, might fall.

It is supposed to be in this second quarter of 2019... between now and 30 June.

But we've seen dates come and go before.

Is there any assurance or guarantee that Line 1 of the O-Train will carry passengers before Canada Day?

All 34 of the initial LRV's are complete and from the last FEDCO update, almost all of them have gotten all the required certifications.

They've also started assembling LRV's 35-38 which are additional trains that the city ordered.

Went for a spot yesterday (April 1st) and last Thrusday (March 28th). Yesterday they were only testing double trains at a rate of one train every 7 to 10 minutes. Also speed of the Double trains seems to now match-up with that of the single trains. Enjoy the Video, I'll try to make more before the line opens ? !
P.S : I love the noise of these trains, almost subway like !

Yeah was driving westbound on Scott street coming up to Bayview station and I was parallel to a double-linked tram. Clocked it at 60 KM/h exactly as we were approaching City Center then it slowed down as I don't imagine he was about to roll into the station from 60 to 0! ?

Great pics. Lees is turning into quite a good spot to snap photos thanks to the curve in the track, overpass and pathways. 

Tremblay is also another good spot. The testing is really running at full steam now.
