  1. Filmed last year; I am hopefully getting an actual camera to film a more recent case. This is probably the first video of a train actually continuing beyond Vaughan into the tailtracks at the end of the road.
  2. North of Eglinton Station, a center track is provided where trains can move towards it rather than north towards Lawrence station. Interlock signals which lead to the center track can set the path to the center track by signaling a double yellow signal. However, unlike most center tracks, the Eglinton Center track is effectively a dead-end tail track and can never be used for normal service. I have already recorded two instances of a train pulling into the center track; the most recent one is shown below: Trains at Eglinton Station can pull into the tailtrack from both the north
  3. A few weeks ago, progress have been made to perform ATC signal upgrades, such that Line 1 trains on North York will only serve stations between Finch and Eglinton. I noticed that the rarely-used signal north of Eglinton on the southbound track [which always displays either a double-red or double-yellow, so southbound trains will reverse into the center tail track] has been replaced with an ATC-style signal. More surprisingly, I noticed that the northbound home signal, N338 X54 now had its lower lights all covered up; meaning that the signal no longer have a lower head representing which d
  4. I noticed that the south signal of the northbound Eglinton platform is unusually large. It is also rarely used nowadays [It might have been commonly used when Eglinton was a terminus], as the most recent usages involve reversing northbound trains back south. I am wondering why this signal is so huge? The southbound signal on the other side that leads out in the open is of normal size? Is it maybe because outdoor signals are larger so they are more visible?
  5. West of the Sheppard station, there is an incredibly long tail track [aronund 800m long] used to store up to two or probably three spare trains. Under normal service, this line always have four trains running, and frequently I saw another train parked on either side of the tailtracks. East of Don Mills station, there are a pair of two very short tailtracks, which are probably never used unless they are used to store work cars. I have a few questions regarding the usage of these tailtracks. I am kinda curious as the Sheppard tail tracks is the only dead-end tracks that contain multiple int
  6. http://metrotransitarchives.blogspot.com Hello, everyone: My name is Thomas Reaves and I ran a blog called Metro Transit Archives. In it, I will share photos and advice from my 17 years of being a transportation photographer. Below is a link to my site, which is updated regularly and I will back post all current entries and add more to this forum every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
  7. My co-producer Alex from SkyRail Productions and myself have been working hard on a TTC documentary this summer. The documentary will feature 7-11 TTC subway operators, 4 tower/transit controllers from transit control, a subway line mechanic and supervisor. We have completed our filming and currently in the editing stage. Here is our introduction video to the production to be released this fall: If anyone is wondering we got permission from TTC corporate and they know what we are doing.
  8. Check out my production explaining the signs and signals used on the Toronto subway system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-ocZiIBAPc. I worked hard, I hope you like it!
  9. There's been a lot of talk this year about building new transit infrastructure in Toronto. However, the obstacle always comes down to: how are people going to pay for it? At the moment, there doesn't seem to be any real fiscal measures to raise funds for capital investments in the TTC. Even its operational costs are subsidized at such a small scale, it's laughable (no provincial funding.) That being said, what kind of strategy should be taken to really get the money flowing to build new subways, LRTs, streetcars, bus routes, etc? A few ideas I've heard in the past: -Increased property taxes
