Queen Lower
Toronto Transit Commission Streetcar Station

Bay Lower is not the only famous abandoned station located on the property of the Toronto Transit Commission. Another abandoned station exists underneath the existing Queen subway station on the Yonge line (yellow line). Well, if you can call it a station, given it's current looks. Tunnel may be more appropriate.

Queen Lower was meant to be a stop on an underground streetcar line (a streetcar subway), much like how Queen's Quay stop is set up on the Harbourfront LRT. The underground streetcar was meant to run from at least Church Street in the east to Simcoe Street in the west with a series of underground stops along the line, Queen Lower being one of them. As fate would have it, the Queen streetcar subway was doubtful from the time the Yonge line opened; it was decided it would be a full subway shortly afterwards. It was usurped by the Bloor-Danforth Line (green line[/url]) and sidelined... which is the state it is in today.

While TTC staff rarely go into the abandoned station, there are several areas where they will be able to hear you from outside the station itself should you find yourself inside of it. As well, there isn't any way to get into the lower station without knowing someone who has access and doesn't mind showing you around down there, seeing as how there aren't any tunnels to go running through to get down there. Wear safety boots; it is an unfinished station with a heck of a lot of water damage.

In it's own right, Queen Lower is interesting just because it's a shell of a station and because it's fairly difficult to get access to down there. But if you can't get someone to let you in (something that can get them in trouble with TTC, as it is a non-public area), then it's not worth losing sleep over.

Again, another case of not being happy with the shots that I took with the point & shoot back in the day...
