Here's the boundary from Google Maps. The area near Danforth and Main is weird. Who came up with that border? lol

That google map is not really correct.

This may not be 100%, but it's definitely closer. I know that the boundary north of Danforth was never just a straight line from the Don River, and also that once it dipped south of Danforth east of Luttrell, it never went up as far as the Danforth again.

And if he's drawn the boundaries accurately, the tracks on Victoria Park are safely within the old City of Toronto.

TTC 8480, 1707, 8485 & 1726 on 925 Don Mills Express.

Probably to handle the excess crowd due to the free weekend at the Ontario Science Centre.

Seen between 5:15 & 5:35 pm.

York U Shuttle's Ford E-450/Starcraft cutaway was assigned to the busy Glendon-Keele route today, starting with the 11:15 am departure from Vari Hall. It changed off one of the Thomas C2s which was pulled from service and sent for repair work due to a battery problem.

That border was probably because of the prohibition of alcohol consumption in restaurants in East York back in the day

Don't get started with the former City of York's borders... it's funny how the North York-York border splits through Mount Dennis garage

What's 85J?

85J is the internal reference to the branch of 85 Sheppard East running between Sheppard-Yonge Station and Don Mills Station.
