Rollsigns from Toronto, ON
Birchmount Garage
This linen front rollsign has 64 exposures. Through research, it was found that
this version's creation date is around February 29, 1988. This Birchmount
rollsign is version "B-59". Exposures that are red, yellow and black are the
original design. From 1985 on, the TTC used only black for regular service
routes to save money. The blue exposures represent overnight service routes
on their "Blue Night" network.
The TTC's Birchmount is one of the oldest in the system, and currently is the oldest
bus garage still in operation. Birchmount Garage and its routes primarily serve the
southern and southeastern area of Toronto.
This set of front and side mylar rollsigns are off 1976 GMC T6H-5307N New Look #8091. They
both have a print date of January 17, 1995, and each have 26 exposures. The "Morningside
116E" exposure has been enlarged for detail (see below). Unofficially, these Birchmount signs
are listed as version "B-60"

Their respective sign tags are shown below. Because some of the print is very narrow, the side
sign image (right) is two times larger than the other scale drawings to enhance detail.
