Thought I'd recognized Lorna's cello! You can her her at the Kitchener market pretty much every Saturday.

So based on the dates from the last council meeting, would the following be an accurate vehicle status summary (assuming the equipment install dates were met)?

501 - Kingston | Returned | Updating and FIE to be Installed
502 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Installed
503 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Installed
504 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Installed
505 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Install in Progress
506 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Install in Progress
507 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Install in Progress
508 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Install in Progress
509 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Install in Progress
510 - Kingston | Assembled | FIE Install in Progress
511 - OMSF | Delivered | FIE Installed
512 - OSMF | Delivered | FIE Installed
513 - Kingston | Assembled | FIE Install in Progress
514 - Kingston | Assembled | FIE Install in Progress

Note: At the time of the Council Meeting 502, 503, 504 & 512 were approximately 50% completed on the FIE installation. Since 512 is now delivered with FIE installed, I thought it safe to assume 502, 503 & 504 also have the FIE install completed.

I wouldn't assume anything until the next council update.

Or until we hear 502, 503, or 504 out for testing again on the radio...  (which may come first)

Which probably won't happen until they have enough drivers trained on the equipment (which shouldn't take too long).

There's another one on the way here now apparently. So I updated the list.

We can always be disappointed or they might exceed expectations, but given the information that we have, JJTP's projections sound reasonable to me.
