What's GOs policy on this sort of situation? Is it immediate termination, or is it experience-dependent? I have noticed that GO buses are aggressive on the road...

No not immediate termination. They either pay the ticket or fight the city over it and which GO usually wins.

GO and UP Express Service Changes This Weekend

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TORONTO: November 17, 2017 – This weekend there will be service changes for both GO Transit and UP Express.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Due to track maintenance, tonight and Saturday evenings, starting at 8:00 p.m., UP Express will depart hourly until the end of service. The last northbound train to leave Union Station going to Pearson Airport will be at 00:45 and the last southbound train to leave Pearson Airport going to Union Station will be at 00:42.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday, avoid traffic and parking and take GO Transit to the Annual Toronto Santa Claus Parade. GO Transit will offer special train service on the Milton, Kitchener, Stouffville and Barrie lines. Lakeshore East and West will run regular service every 30 minutes. Special fares will be available, $5 for kids/seniors, $10 for adults and $20 for groups (conditions apply). Don’t forget, UP express is always an option to get to and from downtown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We encourage customers to sign-up for GO Alerts. For more information visit Just GO or UP Express

As per YRT website's service change page, weekday midday and evening train service will be introduced on Barrie Line, starting December 17. 

Not correct. While YRT may be starting a new board period on December 17, GO isn't starting one until December 30.

256 in service as a cab car on Lakeshore East today. 

I did a double take on 244 as well, while it was coupled to 365 in the Bathurst Yard.

Is GO Transit converting older cab cars too coaches?

This has been happening for the better part of 2 years now. The old cab cars are being "converted" to coaches as there are now more than enough of the CEM cab cars on the property.

I believe I saw another such set on the Lakeshore East line two days ago because it definitely wasn't #SantasOtherRide.

Do we have multiple complete two-tone trainsets now?

Yes, the other two-tone trainset is led by GO 666. Not sure if there is more other than 664&666.

Speaking of which, are any 200-series cab cars left in service?

Definitely. One of them was parked in the Whitby sidings when I drove by them on Highway 401 this morning - and it probably was 256.

On another note, more shunting work appears to be underway in the newly completed East Rail Maintenance Facility, today involving a F59PH and two bilevels, one of which was a CEM cab car.

And I think the F59PH and 2 bilevels have stayed there for more than two week or so...The first time I saw them at the new facility was on Nov 10.

They've been doing testing at the facility since July, cycling equipment in-and-out every couple of weeks. Checking clearances, reach and weight restrictions, etc.

Since a good chunk of this proposal involves GOT, I was wondering what you all thought of it. 

https://www.thestar.com/news/city_hall/2017/11/21/estimated-costs-for-torontos-rail-deck-park-rise-to-166-billion.html

In the rendering we see that we are situated west of Union Station, facing the station itself, using the Rogers Center as an orientation point. What is that platform to the left? Wondering why that would be there, especially since it doesn't look like a walkway for employees (note yellow lines, people, info boards etc.). I'll assume that underpass is representing the one today, which seems accurate. 

Obviously this is only a proposal, but I'm curious to hear your opinions on it.
