7925 seen both in the morning and afternoon, wandering about south Etobicoke, signed TRAINING BUS.

After this, the trainees will no doubt be trained on similar hand-me-down equipment such as TCR 55 at Halton, and maybe taught how to hook a sleigh to a team of horses, as winter is coming.

As wikipedia says:


When snowy conditions threatened, two horses would be assigned to each one-horse car. Work gangs would attempt to shovel the tracks clear of snow. If the tracks became unusable, horsecars were replaced by buses fitted with runners and by sleighs. Replacing larger horsecars required more buses and sleighs, and some of the conductors would become drivers; other conductors would act as fare collectors posted at busy locations.[3]: 11

TTC 8129 on 107 this morning. The destination signs seem to have been stuck on Not In Service. Saw it sporting hand written front and side sign cards. I haven't seen those used since high floors all retired. 


TTC 8763 on the 54A Lawrence East this evening also with a malfunctioning destination sign and sporting a hand written side sign card!

Alright, that’s it, vacation’s over, back to work.  And that means back to downtown Toronto.  Yay.  Hear the sound of one hand clapping?  

Downtown Toronto where part of Front St. is closed because of falling condo glass (nostalgia to 15+ years ago) and streetcars with fleet numbers like this (nostalgia to 25+ years ago):


I liked the previous 4601 better.  Especially with the paint job oddities that UTDC did on that one.  This one, boring, serves only as a reminder of what we used to have when things were more interesting.
