TTC McCowan Yard 008


A shop worker shows off the hydraulic wheel lathe the TTC uses to keep the wheels of ICTS cars round and true. Vehicles are pulled over this machine, which pulls apart, allowing the wheel to descend on the machine, where it is turned and flat areas ground off. Before this machine was installed, trucks would have to be removed from the vehicle so that wheels could be repaired, taking up over a week's worth of manpower. The machine allows an entire car to be finished within a worksheet. Photo by James Bow.
