|Rollsigns from Toronto, ON
|This front linen rollsign has 51 exposures. Through research its version
date was found to be around February 29, 1988. Its version number on
the sign is "E-50". 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.
A YouTube video of this rollsign can be viewed below.
|Up until 2002, the TTC's Eglinton Garage was the oldest bus garage in the city. When
streetcars operated along Yonge Street and interurban cars went to communities to the north,
streetcars also operated out of here. Before it was merged with Danforth Garage and the new
Eglinton Garage opened, the original Eglinton Garage operated routes that were anchored
primarily in the central and north central area of Toronto, but spread to all areas of the city.
|This front linen rollsign was off 1981 Flyer Industries Ltd. D901 #8471.
It has 57 exposures. Through research its version date was found to
be around January 20, 1991. Its version number on the sign is "E-54".
The 101 exposure on these signs was a misprint: The route name was
"Donway-York Mills", not "Donway-York Mills Stn" as printed.
|This front mylar rollsign was off 1976 GMC T6H-5307N
New Look #8086, the only 1976 New Look to operate
out of Eglinton Garage after 1995. As a result, this
sign was the one and only mylar ever printed for
Eglinton Garage. No matching side sign was ever
printed. This sign's print date is January 17, 1995. It
has 26 exposures. Unofficially, it is listed as version
"E-56". Its sign tag is shown below.
