    Harbour Lead railway

    ^ Looks like from a presentation given that it's part of a land swamp where they'll move their existing facility. A presentation that was given to the Waterfront Design Review Panel was posted here.

    Toronto Harbour Spurs

    Just found this slide from a Waterfront Toronto presentation confirming the spur will be relocated. Posted here: https://urbantoronto.ca/forum/threads/canada-post-postal-sorting-station-675-commissioners-canada-post-1s-kingsland-architects.28597/

    Sorry, good point. Any idea of where or when it will be relocated?

    The new Canada Post sorting facility will remove the spur track that served the City's waste treatment plant at Ashbridge's Bay. From the March 15, 2018 staff report:

    Not directly related to CP Power but thought some here might have some insights. Cross posted from the GO Transit thread.

    GO Transit

    (Cross posted from UT) This isn't directly related to GO construction but I can't think of a better thread. Took the GO train to Hamilton last night and to the Hunter St station. Passed through the work happening at Bayview Junction. Nothing further to note beyond what's been posted here. What I found interesting is that all the CTC signals on the CP line from Bayview Junction to Hunter Street station appeared to be turned off. Also, it looked like the tracks really aren't used that often but maybe that's just my perception. Is traffic down on this portion of the CP network? I also notice that the train travels pretty slowly from Bayview Junction into the Hunter Street station. Bringing this back to the topic of this thread I wonder if a slowdown by CP would allow GO to do any upgrades on the track? Or do the curves and the tunnel really limit how much can really be done here?

    Trouble for the Churchill rail line deal: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/churchill-rail-hudson-bay-deal-fall-apart-1.4732123
  11. The website is still working and it looks the file is still available for download. What's the concern? That it hasn't been updated recently?

    Toronto Harbour Spurs

    I was biking yesterday along the Toronto Waterfront and noticed that the tracks to the Redpath building had been ripped up. I also took a few pictures of the switches along Basin Street which I read somewhere are the only ones in Toronto which are in the same style as TTC streetcar switches - they are in the pavement. Sadly, this section of track is no longer in use as a new film studio has cut access to the mainline. I exepect to see more changes in the portlands as Waterfront Toronto begins to revitalize the area.
