    Here is a nice evening picture , I have a feeling it may have been taken either Ray Madden ( who operated the night car with his choice PCC he loved them) or Frank Hood. A fan trip perhaps?

    Anyway Dundas Station has two Streetcar Lines running into it, King Street car and Dundas Car as well as several bus lines.

    This Street Car is 4500, it is also used as a tour street car for the fans.

    That was in the days of one track only at Dundas West Station. See below for a look at Dundas West with the two track loop during the 2003 ERA Convention.

    Another one taken on the new 505 Dundas loading island. Access to the island is by walking in front of a 504 car. This is 4071 during a TTS charter September 18, 2005:

    Hi Bill ,

    I was down town last year and had an opportunity to see both ends. Broadview and Dundas retrakage .
    That was a streetcar fan day.

    Will you be at the TTS on the 13 Feb?

    Cool photo's Chris and Bill. I used to ride the King car out of Dundas Station way back when. Sometimes, when I was in no hurry I would take it all the way to Broadview, just for the view. I sure miss those old PCCs.
