Transit-related merchandise

Recommended Posts

It's not exhaustive but I've been compiling a list of gifts with a transit theme as well as practical items of use to riders in their daily commutes. I'd appreciate learning of other merchandise or art that is available -- particularly any leads on finding TTC model streetcars -- whether for scale railroads or kids' toys.

As mentioned in another thread, some of Ted Wickson's postcards of classic TTC vehicles are now on sale at the Transit Stuff store in Union subway station. If the select cards sell well enough, I expect more of his extensive collection to be offered. The "General Store" in the VIA departures level has additional Wickson cards (rail themed), plus the official selection of VIA merch. It would be cool if they stocked ONR items...

Here's another source of streetcar art I found: http://normanstiff.com/streetcars.html

Some of the images are tailored to a wider audience; aficionados will notice a few cases of artistic licence.

Thanks in advance for any tips.

I believe the Halton County Radial Railway museum still sells model PCCs, and here's a store at Queen's Quay Terminal and one at The Royal York that sell model PCCs and buses.

The Royal York's PCC's are indeed true. As long as you don't mind hippy streetcars.

Are the TTC PCC's the correct colour, as all the Bachman TTC PCC's pictures online were some non-TTC scheme.
