 Overview
 Description
After descending into the tunnel just west of the foot of Bay Street, one arrives at the quaint Queens Quay station, the only TTC station without a collector. Past the platforms, you enter into one of the two interesting tunnels carved roughly into the bedrock. After a quarter mile journey you arrive at the Union Station, where the streetcars loop around and return the way they came.

     History
    The Harbourfront LRT tunnel originally opened in 1990; proposals had existed since the 1970s for a waterfront LRT. The quarter-mile twin tunnels were the city's answer: running along Bay Street and Queens Quay, it was Toronto's first of two underground portions of LRT track. It also prompted the construction of the southernmost TTC station: Queens Quay.
