[PHOTO] RT-76 flat car in transit, Bloor-Yonge station

A couple of months ago, past 1 o’clock in the morning, I and the other people on the Line 2 platform at Bloor-Yonge were surprised to see this RT-76 flat car zoom past. Transit Toronto’s page of TTC service cars goes into some detail about this element of the TTC fleet, so often overlooked; I’d never seen one before that night. I just wish I had been able to take a better photo, but in my defense everyone on the platform by this vehicle’s appearance.
