The TTC used to have an extensive fleet of work cars that rode the rails, performing the maintenance duties of the system. Gradually, they've been replaced, so that only the Rail Grinders remained, and then these two were retired and removed from the network. However, in this small but growing page, we hope to give you a rogues gallery of the other cars that were the grunt-workers of the system.
