Over a period of many years there were street railway level crossings with regular railways. Because of the dangers involved, and a few collisions they were avoided by subways (street underpasses) beneath train tracks or railway overpasses also in early years a refusal to allow streetcar tracks to cross a railway line. In some cases this meant streetcar riders had to get off and walk across the railway tracks and reboard another car on a different line.
The last two level crossings were across a CNR track on Bathurst Street into a east side factory just north of Front Street West and a CNR industrial spur once the Toronto Belt Line's Humber loop across the Queen Street Extension west of Sunnyside built in 1955. They ended circa 1960.
