Rollsigns from Toronto, ON
Queensway Garage
This front linen rollsign has 49 exposures. Through research, it was found
that this version was created around June 24, 1984. It is shown on the
sign to be version "Q-38". The most notable point about this sign is that
there is no blue "Blue Night" exposures. Exposures that are red, yellow
and black are the original design. As well, the "Races" and "Special" are
from the milticolour era of rollsigns. From 1985 on, the TTC used only
black for regular service routes to save money.

Its routes primarily serve the southwest and west central area of Toronto.
