The TTC has serviced Toronto for about 65 years, so Torontonians have seen the many changes our buses and streetcars have gone through. As streetcars get upgraded and replaced, old ones can often be simply discarded and some can show up in some strange locations. One picture of an old TTC streetcar, in particular, has got people debating its origin - and, of course, bashing the TTC.

Toronto city councillor Josh Matlow shared a picture on Twitter of the abandoned vehicle somewhere in the wooded forest of Haliburton County, Ontario.

The photo has raised a lot of questions as to what it's doing there and how it got up into the wilderness.

This awesome discovery has made a lot of people wonder the story behind it. It certainly seems to have been there for a  while.

The TTC, as we know, can be a prime target for trashing on social media, whether serious or lighthearted, and whether or not you feel it's deserved.

This occasion was no different. Like always, people weren't shy to crack a couple of jokes at the expense of Toronto's transit.

According to the tweet, this mysterious streetcar can be found in Haliburton Highlands on Kennaway Road.

This area is home to the Haliburton Scout Camp, where some people seem to remember this relic pretty well, apparently confirming its long-term residence in the forest.

But how did it get up there? It would take a lot to get this ride all the way to the highlands. One user suggests it was used in a float parade and was left abandoned over time.

The drive from Toronto to Haliburton Scout Reserve is approximately three hours. There are no past routes which suggest the TTC might have made its own way all the way there. If it did, that was quite the mission!

If you happen to find yourself in the Haliburton Highlands, maybe you can uncover the truth behind this mystery.
