Media Advisory - Flat Jenny rides the subway

TORONTO, March 24 /CNW/ - The TTC will be introduced to its latest recruit tomorrow morning (Thursday, March 25) at Fenside Public School in Toronto. She’s only seven years old, but her first assignment as Subway Operator will be to drive the Subway’s 50th Anniversary Ceremonial Train down the Yonge line on Tuesday, March 30th.

The Operator’s name is Flat Jennifer (Jenny for short). She’s 27 centimetres tall, wearing a TTC uniform and is made entirely from construction paper.

Grade 2 children at Fenside will introduce Flat Jenny to Subway Operator Ken Johnson and Subway Guard Ernie Banfield, who will crew the official ceremonial train during a re-enactment of the inaugural train ride in Toronto 50 years ago to the day on March 30th, 1954.

Earlier this year, Grade 4 students at Fenside Public School created a paper doll called Flat Mark. Flat Mark went to Ottawa and met Prime Minister Paul Martin.
