Yonge Subway Anniversary

Next Tuesday is the 50th Anniversary of Canada's first subway system. Here are the details on the celebration that will be taking place:

On Tuesday, March 30th, 2004, the TTC will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Yonge Subway with a re-enactment of the official opening train ride and a giant party in the Grand Hall at Union (train) Station at Front and Bay streets.

You're invited to join the historic subway train ride at any of the original 12 stations: Eglinton, Davisville, St. Clair, Summerhill, Rosedale, Bloor, Wellesley, College, Dundas, Queen, King or Union, or come directly to the Grand Hall at Union (train) Station to join the celebration. The first train leaves Eglinton Station at about 10:30 a.m., and the ceremonies begin at Union Station at 11 a.m.

You can read all about it on the TTC's site, including some archive material and a contest.
