Railfans Delight: Lower Bay Diversion Brings Out Cameras



Crossposted to Spacing’s Wire

Less than twenty-four hours after the TTC began diverting Bloor-Danforth subway trains through Lower Bay and Museum stations, railfans have posted a number of videos on YouTube. In my opinion, the best one I’ve seen is below.

The video shows the train’s departure from Yonge, its operation through the switches and down into Lower Bay as well as beyond, around the curve and into Museum station. You can clearly hear the announcements on the PA explaining the diversion as well as some oohs and aws from the passengers as the train passes through Lower Bay.

Other videos include:

From these links, you can see other videos railfans have taken. More will probably be added in the coming days.
