Toronto Transit Commission 4200-4259 were 1942 CC&F PCC A-3 class air-electric streetcars, built new for the TTC. Their body shells were built by St. Louis Car Company in the US, and finished by CC&F in Montreal. This group was one of the wartime follow-up orders after the initial A1-class cars.

Most of this series of air-electric PCC's were retired in the mid-late 1960's with the opening of the new Bloor-Danforth subway line in 1966 and its subsequent extensions in 1968, with the last of the A3 series retired in 1971. Many of the retired cars were part of a group sold to Alexandria, Egypt, and others were eventually scrapped.

Four A-3 class cars (4226, 4228, 4247 and 4253) were part of a group of 10 TTC PCC cars purchased by Transportes Eléctricos de Tampico (Tampico, Mexico) in 1971-1972. Scrap car 4216 (that had previously been in a collision) had left-side doors cut into it by the TTC as a demonstration/test for potential Mexican sales to Vera Cruz, but no orders were forthcoming. The car was later scrapped.

This number series was eventually reused for the new TTC ALRV streetcars build in the late 1980's and early 1990's.
