A TTC Car in Phoenix
I was wandering around Phoenix one night when I came across this sign. I'm not a huge fan of transit equipment, but hey, it rides on rails so I took a closer look. Imagine my surprise when I saw this car deep in Arizona.
This is ex-Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) car 4607.
It turns out that Valley Metro, the transit authority for the Phoenix area, has a transit terminal in that area. As part of the terminal, they have a little fenced-off area as an outdoor display of older transit vehicles.
See on Google Maps.
As it happens, there is a Phoenix Trolley Museum a few blocks north of this location.
