Rollsigns from Toronto, ON
Arrow Road Garage
These two incomplete linen rollsigns are both version "A-5". Their readings
combined represent a typical Arrow Road rollsign. Through research, I've found
the date of this version to be newer than November 20, 1988, as route 37 was
not on the original list, but not newer than February 18, 1990. All the route 58
and 84 exposures, along with the Garage section on the side sign (right) were
single exposures borrowed from other signs. The blue exposures on the front
sign (left) are the overnight routes. The front sign section has 35 exposures,
while the side sign section has 40 exposures.
The TTC's Arrow Road Garage was the newest in the system during the heyday of rollsign use. (Mount Dennis
Garage in the old City of York [2008] and McNicoll Garage in north central Scarborough [2021] are the
newest now.) Arrow Road Garage's routes primarily serve the area of northwest and north central Toronto.
This mylar front rollsign is off 1976 GMC T6H-5307N
New Look #8109. It is dated January 17, 1995,
and has 30 exposures. The 96E destination of
"York Mills Stn" was a misprint. It should have read
"Wilson Stn", so a strip of sticky vinyl was placed
over the misprint. However, on this sign it was
mistakenly placed over the "York Mills Stn"
exposure on route 96D. Its sign tag is seen below.
This set of front and side mylar rollsigns were received in "mint condition", having never been installed in a bus.
Their print date is January 17, 1995, and they each have 30 exposures. The 96E destination of "York Mills Stn"
was a misprint. It should have read "Wilson Stn", so a strip of sticky vinyl was placed over the misprint. These
signs have the correct placement of the vinyl strip. Unofficially, all these Arrow Road signs are version "A-6".

The sign tag for the front sign is the same as the previous one, as they're from the same batch. Because some
of the print is very narrow, the image of the side sign (right) is two times larger than the other scale drawings to
enhance detail. Their respective sign tags are shown below.
