Anyone in Toronto want to ride an antique streetcar on September 25?

PCC Streetcar Tour and Brunch, and Guest Speaker

The East Toronto Chapter of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) is proud to host a tour through Toronto on one of the TTC’s two remaining PCC (Presidents’ Conference Committee) streetcars. We will be joined by guest speakers as well as leaders from the TTC and the PEO leadership.

Toronto Historian and author Mike Filey will host our tour around the City’s streetcar network. Mike’s talk will be: Toronto and its Streetcars from 1861 and into the future!

Mike has planned a route expressly for engineers. His route will highlight the development of Public Transportation in our city. Mike has written almost two dozen books about Toronto’s history including the popular “The TTC Story, the First 75 Years”. Mike’s popular Toronto history books will be available on the streetcar at a discount for anyone who wants them.

Admission includes the Hot House Restaurant’s famous Sunday Brunch. We will be dining in the private Library Room where TTC’s guests and PEO’s leadership will be giving greetings. Before we depart on our tour, Mike Filey will give a presentation priming the group for the trip to come.

Date: Sunday 2016 September 25 11:30

Time: Brunch 11:30 AM Tour 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Tour Pick Up and Drop Off: Hot House Restaurant - 35 Church St. @ Front
Transit: From King Station walk east to Church then south to 35 Church Street (Church St. & Front St.E)

EDIT: The tour is full, so I can't bring any more friends. I've put myself on the waitlist, and will let you know if there are any cancellations.
