So the T1's have run exclusively on line 2 for a while now, but why is the flat wheel issue become such an issue only recently? The H6 cars would constantly slide to a stop but never had issues with flat wheels? If I'm not mistaken the wheel type of different on the H6 and T1's? Could that be part of the issue? This was not really an issue when they where on line 1, which has outdoor running as well.

Are the operators harder on the equipment, causing more flat wheel spots?

Not sure what T1 car this was as my friend caught this but it looks like they might start putting up these maps exclusively on Line 2. With this happening could we expect the maps on the TRs to change to exclusive line maps instead of the current system map?

These have been popping up since a few months ago. They're supposed to be used in conjunction with full-rail network maps placed in the portrait ad racks beside the doors but those have been rarely put in place so far. I have no idea for what's in store for Line 1.

I am going to say they will leave it since they have the light up device on each.

All 3 levels of government just announced plans for Yonge/Bloor station which includes capacity enhancements. They claim it includes modifications to the Line 1 platform and an additional Line 2 platform. Not sure of many details yet. Does anyone know if this additional Line 2 platform will be similar to what they did at Union Station by turning the Center platform into side platforms or something else? Either way, this is in very early stages.

I thought that either side of the Line 2 platform is taken up by the Bay Building? Dont they need to move the platform in order to have side platforms?

I think that was the most recent concept. If I remember correctly, it was a new south platform for eastbound, and the current platform becomes westbound. There's some plans somewhere ... but I can't see anything newer than 2008 right now.

I don't think the Line 1 modifications were that significant, other than the obvious addition of stairs, escalators, and elevators.

It was significant in the sense that the additional vertical circulation elements also allowed for the inclusion of another 25% or so of platform space.

Edit: Most recent concept, from April of this year: https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2019/ex/bgrd/backgroundfile-131525.pdf
