Queen Street West Streetcar

A TTC streetcar turns off of Queen Street West. I didn't know that the whole wheel assembly rotates to allow the streetcar to make the sharp turn onto the side street.

I am not sure if the water shown in the bottom of the picture has been added to reduce the noise of the streetcars turning at this intersection or if it is just rainwater. Apparently the TTC also uses sand to assist with acceleration and breaking - just like they do in San Francisco. I will have to keep an eye out on the tracks for sand.

Speaking of Queen Street West - the girls from MissBehav'n were dancing up a storm while Police were pulling over some cars for possible traffic violations. Bless their hearts for keeping the people getting tickets entertained.
