    Connaught street is the run in street for Russell street car barn, I have spent many hours over the years lining up here to park a street car after rush hour ends

    Here we see PCC 4500 waiting in line.

    It also has that piece of northbound track leading up to Queen St. that you can only get on by backing up.
