TTC 28 1925


28 - TTC Farebox Car (1921-1951)

Originally built by the Toronto Railway Company in 1911, the TTC acquired TRC Farebox Car #28 in 1921. This car would go around the system, visiting the various carhouses at the end of the day, and collect fareboxes, carrying these to a spur track off of Wellington Street just east of Yonge Street near the TTC's headquarters where the accounting department could receive the fareboxes, collect and sort the fares, and establish the earnings of the day. The use of armoured trucks eliminated the need for the farebox car and it was put into reserve status in 1938, and then used as a storeroom from 1946 to 1951. It was sold for scrap in 1951.
