Steam Locomotive “Toronto”.
On May 16, 1853, the first scheduled train service from Toronto began. A train with three passenger coaches and one freight car pulled by a locomotive named “Toronto” left for Aurora (then known as Machell’s Corners) on the Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Railway. Three years later, the Grand Trunk Railway was extended into Toronto.
