  5. GO York University station

    GO York University station

    Not much for infrastructure fenced off walkway between two warehouses, not wide enough for two forklifts to pass each other. Aside from the cool sign, phone booth and schedule listing, I believe theres also a ticket vending machine closer to the tracks, as well as a bus booth and wheelchair...
  6. Toronto bound

    Toronto bound

    8:24am GO 808 Southbound commuter from Barrie enters Toronto by crossing Stelles Ave. Despite the short lenght, the rear of the train is over the CN mainline - on another bridge. The final, 4th morning train is running 3 minutes late. I'm still debating with myself if I should have taken it...
  7. CN 9671

    CN 9671

    A former Patron of the arts, CN 9671 is unlike the GP40Ls, a GP40-2W of GO Tranist heritage, geared for 76 mile per hour operation. It used to haul the American Orient Express around. Prior to that, it probably shuttled crack Intermodals in the 1990s. Now, he accompanies road units in working...

    GO 545

    During my short (10 min.) railfanning time at Toronto's Union station I managed to catch three GO commuter trains like this one, and got sight of the ONR Northlander before he hid inside the station. Needless to say I quickly became bored with them, you only need to see two trains before the...

    Toronto Union Station 2002

    One day at Toronto in September of 2002. A great railroad station! This train is departing to the south west.
