C-1 - TTC Crane Car (1911-1967)

TTC Crane Car C1 poses outside of one of the carhouses at the Halton County Railway museum. The HCRR has preserved and made good use of this vehicle, originally built in 1911 by the Toronto Railway Company for use (usually at night) on trackwork jobs and occasionally delivering and placing salt and sand boxes. It served the TTC until 1967 and was donated to the museum in 1968. This crane boasts a 5-ton hoist, and the car was one of two built by the TRC. C1's brother, C2, can now be found at the Ohio Railway Museum.
