  1. The Carlton Car 506 is notorious for people riding west past Roncesvalles thinking they will get to High Park station.
  2. I dunno, grass grows on hillsides maybe?
  3. I don't know if anyone else has posted this, but grass is starting to go in on the ROW, east of the portal, by Bermondsey.
  4. A couple of random experiences with TTC's PCCs. I was on a PCC eastbound on Queen east of downtown where it seemed that we had either full power or full braking. The operator said "the motor is kicking back" or something similar. This being the good old days, around 1980, the car didn't go out of service until Russel. And we got a ride into the yard on the ladder track, which was quite bumpy. I think that's my only ride through ladder tracks in a TTC yard. Also circa 1980, I believe 4302--it was a 4300 series for sure--lost its brakes westbound on Howard Park, so it T-boned a northbound PCC on Roncesvalles, 4417 is what I think it was, whose rear end then derailed and sideswiped a southbound CLRV. I did not see this happen, but I sure saw the results. Again, someone said that the A6 cars had brake failure issues.
  5. For a minute I thought some whining whiner was going to get non-hand-me-downs on 50 BURNHAMTHORPE. Then reality presented itself.
  6. I wonder if 8000-8011 have racked up extra km's being mostly on a highway run (until dispatched to 55 WARREN PARK or something). I also wonder if those km's are still easier on the bus than fewer km's in heavy traffic, like Dufferin or Eglinton.
  7. CBC's afternoon Toronto show Here & Now did a bit yesterday (Monday) about a musician who wrote music (I don't think there are words) for all subway stations. Furthermore, the length of the pieces should be enough to cover you until the next station. So the downtown stations get short bits. This all is supposed to be on bandcamp somewhere. Darned if I can find it.
  8. Well, it was some 16xx bus; I think it ended in "5". Oh well.
  9. TTC 1600-series bus, I think 1685, seen as TRAINING BUS westbound on the 401 around Leslie.
  10. TTC 3737 westbound on the 401 in the Leslie area, signed Not In Service (obviously?).
  11. TTC 7910 doing hand-me-down duty on 123B Shorncliffe Sherway. TTC 1390 showing gee-whiz-no-hand-me-down-new-livery-golly-wow on 110A Islington South.
  12. I for one am looking forward to riding Queensway's new-old fleet of TDH5301's. (Actually, not really. D901s--now we're talking.)
  13. Hand them down to Queensway. Hand them down!
  14. Go to the Planning section on ttc.ca: https://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Transit_Planning/index.jsp A ways down you will see the heading Service Summary and below it are the links to one or more of the latest service summaries. The service summaries will tell you all this information. There are lists of routes and which divisions, both alphabetically and by route number. There is a list of interlined routes: And there is a list of buses by division:
