The TTC's Streetcar Spurs and Sidings

Today, the Toronto Transit Commission operates over 83 kilometres of streetcar track, and that number has come down considerably from its heyday during and before the Second World War. The TTC is, first and foremost, a passenger operation, using primarily single-ended equipment. The TTC's streetcars turn around in loops, and occasionally make use of tail tracks and sidings to lay over out of the way of other service vehicles.

What the TTC does not usually have are spurs, tracks which break off the main line and then dead-end. The TTC did not have an extensive freight operation which made use of these tracks, although there were exceptions.

This page offers a gallery of the spurs and special tracks on the TTC network.
