PDP #151: Low Ceiling, Fast Train

One thing I didn't miss about the TTC while I was riding the Red Line in Los Angeles was the low-ceiling ethos that pervades the system. A fight on the top of a moving train, like the one at the end of Speed, could never happen in Toronto because there's about a foot of clearance between the roof of the train and that of the stations.

At least they do come regularly, though. At St. Andrew station in the middle hours of the day, there'll be one showing up to go this way or that every two or three minutes. Still, even then people will show up on the platform just in time to watch their prospective train accelerate away.
