The existing Wilson Yard facilities are designed for storage and maintenance of two/four car consist subway trains. The new fixed six-car Toronto Rocket (TR) subway trains require modification and expansion to the Wilson Yard facilities to ensure proper storage and maintenance of TR subway trains. Work at Wilson Yard includes expansion of Wilson Carhouse to the north and south to fully convert the carhouse for the maintenance of fixed six car TR subway trains, construction of an overhaul shop for heavy maintenance of TR subway train trucks and air conditioning units, additional tracks and connections to facilitate efficient train storage and movement in the yard, and a new access roadway into the expanded Wilson Yard.
