  1. Calling all TTC transfer collectors! Please feel free to include scans/pictures of TTC bus/streetcar transfers in this thread. I’m trying to collect all the routes, and I’m missing a few, especially blue night. If you have any blue night transfers please add to this thread. Discontinued routes are also welcomed but I am interested in any TTC transfer.
  2. Similar to the GM fleet reminiscing, I created this thread to share the memories and photos of your experience with the TTC's non-GM Fishbowl fleet prior to 2002 such as Classics, Flyers, New Flyers, Orions (I, II, III, V, VI and pre-refurbished VII), and NovaBUS RTS. If anyone has photos prior to December 31, 2016, feel free to post your old photos from old shoe boxes, slides, even library microfiche or whatever is there. Just don't claim that they are your own if they are not. The following photos are sampled below from my collection: Thanks to @Grapejuice for this

  4. Looks like TTC is looking for manufacturers for a future bus order. Future TTC Bus order Document request list Here R32PA16809 - FUTURE BUS PROCUREMENT OF TTC BUSES The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is seeking an expression of interest in order to identify and obtain information from firms interested in participating with future bus purchases.

  5. With construction of the new McNicoll bus garage, feel free to share photos and discuss the status about the TTC's newest garage/division slated to open next year. A few photos, coutersy of Buttcon In the January 2019 report, a master signup is slated to occur this year with a number of routes being shuffled around. Along with that, Julie Schram supplied a few photos of the garage under construction.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Here is our first episode of the series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfDjNU6S2lE Any other race ideas using transit only we could consider?

  11. Can anyone assist (or know someone who can) with any of the following three historical questions about the APTA Bus Roadeos and TTC: 1) When was the 1st Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Bus Operator Roadeo held and who won? 2) Would anyone have the overall results when Toronto hosted the APTA Bus Roadeo in 1978 and 1991? 3) Would you know anyone who might have the overall results of TTC members who have participated in the APTA International Bus Roadeo since 1976? See attached file of what information is missing. Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Bus Roadeo.xlsx
  12. Mine is obviously 14 Glencairn. I just saw 1001 go by on it. It's because I live on Glencairn Ave. and see the 14 go by everyday, and it's been my dream to drive a 14 since i was little. Mount Dennis, here I come!

  14. This thread is about buses close to retirement, and more so, about when and where to see and ride them in their final days. Mostly this thread should focus on the GTA, however some buses are harder to find than others, and might be further away, so this thread is open to all sightings. First question on this thread: Where can one still ride Orion V's????
  15. Hello all, Does anyone know where to get model TTC Transit buses like this? Doesn't matter what model. I am currently trying to make a model TTC garage. Just wondering if anyone else has these and are willing to sell them or say where they got them. I already know about the model fishbowls and have a couple.

  17. The Virtual TTC Acadamy is a place where transit enthusiasts can simulate 3 out of the 4 of the TTC subway lines together. A video about the academy: The Virtual TTC Academy hosted by T2P Films allows transit enthusiasts to get together and simulate virtual Toronto subway operations in the open source train simulator OpenBVE using only TeamSpeak and a web browser. We do runs on the Yonge-University-Spadina, Bloor-Danforth and Sheppard subway lines. Starting today the Virtual TTC Acadamy will be offering the Montreal STM Orange for operators to try all of this week. If you

  20. I just received the call for my start date. I start training Aug. 22, mode is Bus and my division is #8 Malvern. If anyone has experience at this division I would appreciate you sharing any advice you may have. I haven't posted on here before, but have found this forum a very helpful resource and wanted to thank everyone for posting here. As I didn't know anyone working for the TTC this has been a great place to read and find answers to many questions. Thank you! The process was longer than I would have expected. As such I thought it would be helpful to post a timeline for the stages
  21. Hello everyone, I need some information regarding where certain new looks might have been allocated from 1988 - 2012 when they were retired. Rapido is creating new look models for sale by the TTC and my father is reaching his 30th anniversary with the TTC in January 2018. I was planning on getting him one to mark his 30 years as an operator and wanted to potentially get the number of a bus he likely would have drove on it. Any idea if the following were at Birchmount division from 1988 up until their retirement? -2078 -2085 -2091 -2150 -2153 Thanks in advance!

  23. Hello Everyone! I was wondering if the TTC will be having their Harvey & Duncan Open house again this year. If so, when do they usually set dates? Hoping to get a glimpse of the Gm T6H-5307N New look. Hopefully they finish but I doubt they will. :/ Thanks!
