We decided to spend our NYE on the TTC, taking a path from home to visit all four train lines.
Started off with Line 2 being shut down at High Park and points west because of an injury at Jane, so we hoofed it to Keele, being routed to the opposite side of the platform and then re-routed back normally. Rode the train all the way to Kennedy, then up two flights of stairs to Line 3, which was leaving just as we came up.
So a brief wait on the unheated platform, then the LRT showed up and we rode it to Scarborough Centre, where we were going to catch the 190 Don Mills rocket (a bus), except it was just leaving as we came down the stairs. This was the worst part of the adventure as the station was completely unheated and we had to wait 15 minutes for the next bus, and it was frigging cold. AND we almost missed the bus because its stop was out of sight from where we were waiting but we saw some people running down the sidewalk and checked.
The bus went pretty fast, as it was an Express, but was frigging cold inside too, so we barely had a chance to warm up after the wait. Getting to Don Mills station on Line 4 was a relief because the rest of the trip would be thoroughly heated. Line 4 is pretty nice but does seem kind of orphaned. It's just so awkwardly short. We rode it to the other end to meet up with Line 1 at Sheppard.
We rode Line 1 all the way around the Union loop and transferred to Line 2 unusually at Spadina because we'd never taken the Spadina pedestrian tunnel between the two lines before, and it was delightful as there was a person playing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" on a Chinese Erhu (a two-string bowed instrument with a sound like a violin).
Then the short bit of retracing our path on Line 2 back to High Park Station, getting home a little more than three hours after we left.
I mostly read a book (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon) and people-watched.
