The Toronto Locomotive Works completed the Toronto, the first steam locomotive built in Canada. The Toronto was put on public display before it was inched along to Front Street from the factory at Queen and Yonge. Once the locomotive had been moved along a section of temporary track with crowbars, the tracks behind it were torn up and rebuilt in front of it; the process took five days. And you thought the TTC in rush hour was slow.
