UN­DER­GROUND TRAINS

Kayak (Canada) - - FEATURE -

Two Cana­dian cities have sub­way sys­tems — elec­tric trains that carry peo­ple through un­der­ground tun­nels and some above­ground sec­tions. Con­struc­tion be­gan on Toronto’s sub­way, shown above, in 1949 and the first trains started trav­el­ling the 7.4–kilo­me­tre route in 1954. (It's now more than 10 times that long.) Mon­treal’s sys­tem, known as the Metro, was built be­tween 1962 and 1966, with more sta­tions added in time for the 1967 World’s Fair, Expo 67. Each of its sta­tions, many of which are named af­ter fa­mous peo­ple from Que­bec his­tory, was de­signed by a dif­fer­ent ar­chi­tect.
