The newly announced updated subway line mapping scheme may have exposed the TTC’s penchant for spending money, everywhere except for where it’s needed most.
However this notoriously stagnant transit system is showing some slow and very subtle signs of growth…Finally!
Take, for example what we find hidden behind the new illuminated maps in the still-spanking-new “Toronto Rockets”
The six lights rising to the left from Downsview Station are definitely a prescient sign of things to come. Though Unless you count isolated screw-holes, there isn’t much to see in our immediate future. At least until we get some new maps, at least.
Oops…It seems that we have an interim vision after all.
The strange part of this map, is that the tunnelling from Downsview (soon toe be Sheppard West) has proceeded straight North from the stations. Making the projected Downsview Park station (which is West of today’s Downsview Station) abit of a geographic oddity with no tunnelling headed in that direction.
Stand-By for more updates, and a better looking system.
…On paper at least.
