Newly Installed 8-8-8
I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that they used 8-8-8s on some of the nearside signals when they reconstructed Queen's Quay in Toronto. Even more interesting is that they didn't install backplates with them. The 8-8-8s are mix between Peek Traffic and Fortran models.

Good to see some new 8-8-8`s. I don't think they will have a big comeback. Hopefully they do use them in the GTA again

Yeah so far the only new 8-8-8s aside from this are the ones for bikes/buses/streetcars. I think the MTO still allows 8-8-8s for roads less than 50 km/h too.

It seems they are only used in tiny spaces where its hard to see the signals. This is one and the CGE one downtown Brampton at the train bridge is reasonable

Update: The city went by and replaced this with a 12-8-8 Fortran with reflective backplate. A bit overkill IMO as this was only a secondary head that didn't need to be a full 12-8-8 with backplate.

Sounds like they just put a useless signal up that wasnt needed,.
