Next Stop, Awesomeness

Holy crap.
Earlier today, Spacing Wire found and posted some YouTube videos of the TTC’s temporary re-routing through Lower Bay station that we told you about back in December. The detour through the long-closed station—often used as a set for movies and commercials, and as a training area for TTC conductors—is only in its second day, so we bet that many of you haven’t had a chance to experience it yet. And golly gee, it sure looks incredible. Here’s Spacing’s (and our) favourite clip:

This video, looking out the side of a slow-moving subway car as it goes through the station, is a close second.
To check out some more photos and videos, try searching YouTube, or check out Torontoist’s Flickr Pool (and keep an eye on both searches—more photos and videos are sure to be added over the next month).
To experience it for yourself, go west from Bloor-Yonge station or east from Museum any weekend from now until March 31. Oh, and bring a book, since if this weekend is any indication you’ll be doing lots of waiting.
