Imaginary ttc subway stops

Toronto subway stops that will never happen

Do you remember the Queen Street Subway Line? Unless you're a transit geek or into Toronto history, chances are you don't -- because it was never built. Toronto has had so many grand plans when it comes to transit infrastructure, it's both fun and painful to imagine what might have been. Here to help with such a diversion is designer Jon Toews, who has put together a collection of #imaginarystops.

Some of these trace lines that might once have been built, while others are just playful exercises in wishful thinking. One can only dream of the a subway stop called "Junction" or "Degrassi." It's a statement about the failures of our politicians over the years that these stops seem like such preposterous things, but keep the faith Toronto. One day we might get a Relief Line -- one day.

Check out some of Toews' stops below.
