As part of the West Penn Trolley Meet: At Home Edition, the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is hosting a series of talks and slideshows about transit and transportation on June 26 and June 27, the originally-scheduled dates of the meet. Thank you for joining us!
The Toronto Transportation Commission had the largest PCC fleet in North America, at one time consisting of 744 cars. There were 15 different classes, many of which were purchased second hand. Their fleet included cars from Cincinnati, Cleveland, Birmingham and Kansas City. Author and PTM volunteer Bram Bailey's presentation tracks each class of car defining what it was, when it was built and if second hand, when it was acquired. Many of the TTC cars were sold to other cities, and that aspect is addressed as well. During the presentation we will tour each of the major lines as well as the various car barns that served these routes. The photos cover a span of time from 1964 to about 1996 when the PCCs were retired.
