Why did they discontinue the expressway service? Not enough demand? 

I think thats part of the problem. I filmed the Eastbound Expressway about an hour ago, and as you can see there are more than a few empties.

It could be that its easier to use containers, since they can be double stacked as well. Has the intermodal business increased at the expense of moving actual trailers?

Just wanting to standardize since they haul only trailers in one lane. CP stopped taking trailers years ago on other lanes.

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

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?
