TTC S-30


S-30 - TTC Snow Sweeper (1947-196?)

This picture of sweeper S-30 at Danforth Carhouse in 1966 was donated by Curt Frey. The TTC employed a wide variety of snow removal equipment to keep its tracks clear in the winter, and these monsters were part of a set purchased in 1947 from New York City's Third Avenue Railway System. Note the wire brushes up front to drive the snow off the tracks; a plow at the side helped to clear the street adjacent to the tracks. Note the air-electric PCC stored behind sweeper S-30 in this picture, indicating the age of this shot. By 1970, the TTC had given up on its snow-removal equipment, leaving the surface trackage to be cleaned by the City of Toronto.
