The TTC operates 52 Articulated Light Rail Vehicle (ALRV) streetcars numbered 4200-4251.  These cars are re-using their car numbers, as they were orinigally used for the former PCC A-3 streetcars.  The ALRV is designated class L-3.  They were built be UTDC/Lavalin between 1987 and 1989.  These cars are 76 feet long, and are the sister cars of the CLRV.  The ALRV seats 61.
