W-28 - TTC Rail Grinder (1955-1975)

Restored Toronto Civic Railway car #55 poses at the Halton County Radial Railway's East Carhouse beside its sister, Toronto Civic Railway car #57. Built in 1915, #57 was converted first to a snow scraper in 1931, then to a surface rail grinding car in 1955 (when it received the W-28 number). When PCCs 4631 and 4668 were converted into rail grinders W-30 and W-31 in April 1976, W-28 became surplus and was sold to the HCRR, where it today awaits restoration. At the time of its departure, W-28 was the last Toronto Civic Railway car to operate on the streets of Toronto. Photo by James Bow.
