RT-6 - Vacuum Cleaning Car (1922-2009)

The TTC built RT-6 originally as a snow blower in 1922 before converting it for use in the subway in 1954. It's seen here at Davisville yards on April 17, 1954. Although referred to as a vacuum cleaning car in some records, it does look like it would be more effective blowing snow. The photo is by L. Swanson and is from the John Knight collection.
