Toronto transit projects
Adding to Drum's comments, Bombardier is to deliver five more LRV's for the Eglinton Crosstown by February 1. With it taking a week and a half to send one vehicle by rail, they could never physically get the vehicles there on time. A 2 or 3-day turnaround by flatbed truck is entirely possible.

Thanks to both of you for the details and comments. Some points I hadn’t considered!

Here is an interesting video about loading trams from Bombardier’s plant in Europe for transit to Australia:

Previously I found a video about unloading in which the truck backed right into the ship and they did the usual ramp loading inside there, but I can’t seem to find it now.

Edit: I think this is it:

Note however that this procedure is incompatible with the other video: we aren’t seeing the other end of the trip from the other video but a different delivery.
