If you think you see an Eglinton LRT vehicle passing by, no need to pinch yourself because you aren't dreaming.
The long-awaited subway line is finally in testing and the vehicles are being spotted out and about.

Currently, Metrolinx is reporting that the Crosstown will open sometime in 2022 with 25 stations along Eglinton Avenue.
The vehicle has arrived in the east. Did you catch the vehicle being offloaded onto the rails? https://t.co/UVDVRDZzwB— Crosstown (@Crosstown) 1621961064.0
