Connection to Bloor-Danforth line

Bay and St. George stations each have four parallel tracks, two above two. Between these stations and Museum is a full double-track, grade-separated wye junction. The tracks to/from Museum connect to the upper St. George and Lower Bay stations, while the tracks along Bloor use lower St. George and upper Bay.

The decision by Metro Council in 1960 to build a wye from the University line to the eastbound Bloor line between Museum and Bay stations was a controversial one. TTC Chairman Clarence Downey opposed the construction, estimated to cost about $10 million, saying that $10 million would build an extra mile of subway on the Bloor-Danforth line. The construction was estimated to cost $3 million for the basic interchange, and $7 million for the “intricate trackage system”. [2]


From February to September 1966 all three sides of the wye were used in regular service: from each of three terminals — Eglinton, Keele, and Woodbine — trains ran alternately to the other two (between Eglinton and Museum they went via Union). Thereafter the Bloor-Danforth line became a separate route, Lower Bay was closed, and upper St. George became a terminus for the Yonge-University line until it was extended along to Wilson. Lower Bay is sometimes used as a movie or TV set representing various other cities, and has been used for platform-surface experiments. 1966 (MCMLXVI) was a common year starting on Saturday (the link is to a full 1966 calendar). ...

During repair work to the Bloor-Danforth line's tunnel in 2007, for three weekends (February 24 – March 11), all eastbound and westbound trains were diverted to Museum, terminating in the southbound track. Passengers had to exit the train and cross the centre platform to continue their journey, with northbound, eastbound, and westbound trains all departing from the northbound track.
