TTC W-27


W-27 - TTC Rail Grinder (1955-1967)

TTC's rail grinder W-27 started life as Toronto Civic Railway car #53 in 1915 before being converted into snow scraper 2204 in 1926 before being converted again into the rail grinder above in 1955. In this shot, W-27 heads north on Bathurst Street at King on September 15, 1965. Two years later, the car would be converted again, into subway rail grinder RT-7, before being finally retired in 1970, and acquired by the Halton County Railway Museum in 1976. The photographer is unknown; from the John Knight collection.
