Photo: This Certainly Inspires Confidence

Despite spending two years away, when I returned to Toronto I found that not all that much had changed in my absence. With the exception of the new Toronto Rocket trains, the TTC was essentially just as I remembered it, still struggling with all the problems faced by the operator of a sixty-year-old underground railway, problems that didn't exist in elevated, automated Vancouver. There are things here and there that I don't remember seeing, though--such as this rather stark gap in the ceiling of Osgoode Station above the southbound tracks. While I know those aren't load-bearing slats, at the same time I'm fairly confident that the original station design did not mean for the ceiling to be exposed in this manner.

Oh, TTC.
