    Thread has me thinking of growing up on the West Coast (Canada) in the fifties/early sixties. Vancouver didn't have streetcars as such -- I think the last route was taken out of service around 1955....

    I don't live in Toronto (I'm two hours away), but visit/stay frequently. The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) system is huge -- third-largest or something in N.A.? Anyway, locals will correct me...
