Equipment Information

By far the newest and most modern streetcar preserved at the museum is Toronto Transit Commission 4034. It is a CLRV, which stands for Canadian Light Rail Vehicle, and is a design developed in the 1970s for a streetcar to replace aging PCC cars then in use in Toronto. It remained in daily use until 2019.

FUN FACT: Not only is car 4034 the newest streetcar preserved at IRM, it’s the newest by decades. It was built some 30 years after our next-newest streetcar, CTA 4391, and hit the streets some 20 years after car 4391 was already in a museum.
