Meet on the SRT: two trains of UTDC ICTS cars meet on the Scarborough Rapid Transit line ("Line 3") in Toronto's east end during its first year in operation: TTC 3017 trails a set of eastbound cars, heading northbound into the CN Uxbridge Sub underpass tunnel north of Ellesmere station, as 3007 leads a westbound train south into the station. One can see the CN line on the right (is ran alongside the SRT for a stretch, and when the SRT was built it cut off a few CN customers on the west side of the tracks). 

Built in the early-mid 80's with the Ontario government's insistence on using their new Intermediate Capacity Transit System (halfway between a streetcar and a subway), the aging, orphan transit line in set to close in late 2023 and be replaced with buses until the new replacement Scarborough subway extension is opened.

Original photographer unknown, Dan Dell'Unto collection slide.
