At the Dundas station, downtown on the "1" line.
The trains on the "1" line at this time are newer and have a slanted front.
They also have "open" vestibules between cars, so you can walk the entire
length of the train without passing through any doors.
Entrance to the St. George station, (Bloor/University) for the "1" and "2" lines.
Streetcar approaching the intersection of West Dundas and Bathurst Streets.

A "2" train bound for Kennedy at the Bloor-Yonge station.
Now at the Kennedy station of the "3" line, upstairs from the "2" line.
This line is known as the Scarborough RT "light metro", and will eventually be dismantled
when a replacement is decided upon and built. This short line is only 6 stations long
and uses a unique technology of linear induction motors and side power rails. (3 photos)
Also at Kennedy, but looking west, at one time they had considered using single-ended
streetcars for the line, so this is the remnant of that loop.
At the last station stop of the Scarborough RT, McCowan.
Now at the extreme western station of the "2" line, Kipling station.
At Kipling, you can see the the end-of-line bumper straight ahead.
