    4445 had a bit of a bang (via UT) https://imgur.com/a/6E9zS0P

    Hypothetical: TTC don’t drag their feet on Leslie Barns and it’s open for business before the first Flexity arrives. Decision made to use the Harbour Lead to deliver the Fs there (or at least TTC Lakeshore) instead of Hillcrest. Would CP still route to Agincourt and have a local bring it down, or interchange with CN at some point, or would it just be easier to have CN pick up in TB?

    GO Transit

    Canadian uses Bala-Metrolinx Richmond Hill southbound, Metrolinx Newmarket-backup-CN York-Bala northbound. Otherwise I have pictures of a ghost train passing Corktown Common

    I don't understand the second point here. What does "link the DRL" in mean? DRL is going to be subway, and even if Metrolinx yielded up that section for rapid transit, what do you do at Steeles? Where do Richmond Hill trains and VIA Canadian go? I do think a RH line station in the Don Mills-Lawrence area should be looked at - spacing would be 3km from Oriole.

    @nfitz I would think that retrofitting 4401 is more likely, perhaps fitting it into a slot in the production line when there is a parts shortage in an area 4401 doesn't need. One of the other pilot cars took 17 months to come back so probably shouldn't hold our collective breaths.

    Lots of things are cheaper than the Relief Line. The problem is the amount of relief they provide.

    Transsee GPS has it in Hillcrest (interesting that once again a Hillcrest move is happening under tow)

    The last generation are getting shot full of holes by cops. http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=166646 I doubt EMD has much political capital to be chosen over Siemens given how they exited London ON for Indiana
