    Here's some Don Ross photos from the days of the Toronto Transportation Commission. Should be lots of modeling ideas here and maybe some memories.

    I think I rode that last one at least a few times during visits to Toronto/Ontario Place/CNE.

    Notes:4559 is ex-Cincinatti car. Note the spit side windows (metal plate) which I think was called "no-draft sash", but we thought was to make it hard to hang your elbow out the window. Also, extra-wide cowling around the trolley pole, Cinci had a 2-wire overhead and 2 poles on the cars.
    4701 is ex-Birminham, Al by Pullman. Flat bit over top of windshield and squarer cowling. Can you tell that the standee windows are blue?
