The Old Mill Inn

<p><b>Old Mill</b> is a <a href="/pages/w/133397116700698">subway station</a> on the <a href="/pages/w/417019988458999">Bloor–Danforth line</a> in <a href="/pages/w/108531199171950">Toronto</a>, <a href="/pages/w/107480665948163">Canada</a>. It is located at 2672 <a href="/pages/w/105937396106243">Bloor Street West</a> at Old Mill Terrace and Humber Boulevard in <a href="/pages/w/105539919480812">The Kingsway</a> residential neighbourhood. Nearby destinations include the <a href="/pages/w/123952847649289">Old Mill Inn</a> and <a href="/pages/w/228762117144776">Park Lawn Cemetery</a>.</p><h2>History</h2><p>The station opened in 1968 in what was then the <a href="/pages/w/112105072139178">Borough of Etobicoke</a>.</p><p>In 2000, the station was damaged by a fire on a waste collection train, just after the subway had closed for the night. This was most likely caused by a lit cigarette disposed of in a garbage can at another station. After this incident, the TTC switched to leaving waste outside stations for collection by truck.</p><h2>Subway infrastructure</h2><p>The station is built on the west side of the <a href="/pages/w/143434345670729">Humber River</a> valley. The west end of the station lies underground with the tunnel continuing toward Royal York. The east end of the platform is elevated on a viaduct that takes the line across the river to re-enter the tunnel on the other side of the valley toward Jane Station.</p><p>Glass walls at the train platform's east end provide a view of the riverside park. Bird of prey shaped cutouts have been applied to these large windows to reduce the number of avian fatalities.</p><p>From when station opened in 1968 until 1973, buses and the subway trains serving the station were in <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto_Transit_Commission_fares%23History_of_zone_fares" class="wikipedia">separate fare zones</a> and the station's bus loop was located outside the street entrance. Although the bus platforms have still not been integrated into the station's fare-paid area, since only the one bus route is affected, this has a relatively minor impact on the flow of passengers through the turnstiles.</p>
