Maintenance building for Flexity Outlook streetcars
|Location||20 The Queensway
|Operated by||Toronto Transit Commission|
|Structure type||Streetcar carhouse, maintenance and storage facility|
|Opened||22 January 1895|
The carhouse is located west of the City's downtown core and maintains about half of the system's streetcars. The facility houses streetcars for 501 Queen, 504 King, 505 Dundas, 506 Carlton, 511 Bathurst, 512 St. Clair, and 514 Cherry routes.
The Toronto Railway Company opened the Roncesvalles Carhouse on January 22, 1895. When the TTC took over in 1921 they demolished the old car barn and constructed the current facility, with the tracks realigned north-south.
This is an anticlockwise streetcar loop, exterior to the southwest corner of the carhouse property. It is used to turn back westbound 501 Queen streetcars, which can only enter the loop westbound from The Queensway and exit southbound on Sunnyside Avenue to return eastbound.
