Bomber, last Friday: We've delivered one and are "tracking for five more cars to be delivered ... over the next week or so." MX today: "Metrolinx has received three vehicles ... and we expect three more to arrive over the course of the next couple of weeks."

Perhaps worth mentioning that I spent a protracted period last week asking both Metrolinx and Bombardier how many vehicles had, at that point, been delivered. It took 19 hours to get a firm answer

Rumours abound that Metrolinx is being obstinate about piddling details, and are ready to ship. That might meet their contractual obligations. Particularly as how thoroughly Metrolinx was thrashed in court, the last time they mistakenly accused Bombardier of contract violations.

Shocked-Oh hang on, no I'm not. Let's buy Oshawa's plant & retool/retrain to build & , subway trains & / for + NAmer market. Even starting from scratch, bet we'd still beat the schedule.

Also a - What kind of client attacks vendor, standing with a stopwatch? What has Metrolinx done with the initial 3 vehicles - I bet you they haven't even tried them on Eglinton yet! What are actually financial damages?

Hmmm… Bombardier seems to have troubles almost all over the world… Metrolinx, New York MTA, SBB…

Don't forget Innsbruck, where they're now forced to operate a rail replacement service due to Bombardier delays :)

In this story it may help to clarify or otherwise inform/remind readers about the expected time line for testing and conditioning...both for the line and for the vehicles. Vehicles alone are something like nine months with initial deliveries followed by five-six mths per vehicle.
