Yesterday was the annual Doors Open Toronto, me and daddy went at it alone.
First stop was to the TTC Greenwood yard, which is celebrating it's 50th year of operation this year. Greenwood division is where they store and fix subway trains.
|Hiding in the shade in the line to get in.|
|Riding subway trains, so boring I do that every day|
The first thing we did was take a ride on one of the subway trains, we were supposed to go through a carwash for trains, but one of the trains they were going to use was broken down on the same track that the train wash was on. So we went around the yard, stopped then came back
The rest of the tour was far more intresting, the next location we went was to see a building called the "shops". But these weren't shops where you buy things, this is where they fix the subway trains.
|Do you need spare doors for your subway car, this place has lots of them|
|Lots of wires to chew on in this place|
|The Machinists area|
|Neato, electronics, wonder what it does?|
|More electronics, all I know is that it goes somewhere on a subway train, and does something to make said train work.|
|Testing equipment for the electronics|
|This is one end of a coupler|
|This is the other end of the coupler|
|These are some of the "shoes" that provide power to different vehicles|
|These two pictures show how doors open and close.|
|This is what those collector shoes do|
|This makes sure the cars are connected|
|This train is in to get repainted|
|This train is in for an overhaul|
|It's missing seats|
|This is the "truck" assembly|
|Can you spot me and daddy in this picture?|
|This is a picture of both factions together, now can you spot me and daddy?|
Oh and one fun thing I want to mention. Daddy is working on getting my grandma to bring my older cousin to Fan Expo in September. We are working on getting him a Star Wars costume of his own, and we think it would be fun if me, daddy and Robbie were all dressed up when we go. I'll let everyone know how it goes after his birthday in July (which is when he gets his costume, it's gonna be his birthday present).
