T1 Model

This photo is at the Sheppard-Yonge western end of the Sheppard line.  This line is the newest in the system, opening in 2002.  It extends but four stations east from here, to Don Mills.

The wide doors and narrow windows in view are features of the newest model of subway car in operation, the T1, manufactured by Bombardier. 

TTC is preparing to award a major new contract to Bombardier for the next generation of subway cars.  Their silhouette is anticipated to be quite different from the boxy lines of all the current cars.  Deliveries are anticipated between 2009 and 2011.
