How did GWR trains get to Brantford?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking over the Ontario Railway Map and I see that there does not appear to be a way to switch from the westbound GWR out of Hamilton to Brantford. The junction at Harrisburg has a split that connects to the Galt Branch, but only for eastbound or through traffic.

I can also see that the GTR fixed this by adding their cut-off to the east in 1905. But that seems like a long time with no route into town.

Does anyone know if that junction was actually a wye?
