The journey of the 18 new UP Express vehicles from Japan to North America is complete.
The first two pilot cars, which are now a regular sight against our city’s skyline, are well into their commissioning process and have successfully been tested for acceleration, braking, track signal circuit, and passenger screen door operations at Pearson Station.
An additional four A-cars (front and end vehicles) arrived in Toronto in November and have begun commissioning activities. The remaining six A-cars are in Rochelle, Illinois for final assembly and testing and will arrive in Toronto by the end of the year.
All six of the C-cars (middle vehicles) have arrived in Rochelle, Illinois and are undergoing final assembly and inspection. The first of these units will leave Rochelle for Toronto in January, with the complete C-car fleet in our possession by the middle of February.
