W-5 - TTC Snow Scraper/Snowplow Car (1922-197?)

Curt Frey donated this picture by Julian Bernard of snowplow car W-6 sitting at Wychwood Carhouse in 1958. A virtual twin of snowplow car W-3, this double-trucked wooden vehicle ploughed snow off the streetcar tracks during the middle part of this century. Note the flatbed component in the back. Sweeper S-24 can be seen just in behind. It began life in 1922 as a snow scraper, but was converted to a plow in 1942. It was active up to the late 1970s, when it was scrapped.
