Easter Parade - Four Generations of TTC Streetcars!
Toronto has a rich history of rail-based passenger transportation systems on its city streets. The major player has of course been the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). On Easter Sunday the TTC took the opportunity to bring out four generations of streetcars to participate in the Toronto Beaches Lions Easter Parade on Queen Street West in the Beach area of Toronto. This included the first public operational appearance of the first of their newest streetcar as shown above in a TTC photo!
