Photo: An Abundance of Yellow Light

Last weekend, the Toronto Transit Commission held an open house up at its Hillcrest Complex; the Harvey Shops, the main maintenance base for the city's streetcar fleet, was thrown open for a morning and afternoon amid the first significant snowfall of the season for people to come and gawk around at. I didn't notice the brightly yellow cast of the lights while I was there, but the camera lens captured it well enough. Here, you can see five streetcars in various stages of maintenance--they've been running for more than thirty years now, and they've well outlived their warranties.

  1. I've been to Toronto 4 times since 2000, I love the streetcars and subways you have.

    Where I'm from, Winnipeg, is very backwards. If we didn't have New Flyer in our backyard, then Winnipeg could have had something like Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver installed.
