GO Transit is growing again, this time by expanding their own infrastructure through the acquisition of more trackage from CN.
Metrolinx has acquired a section of CN’s Kingston subdivision line to use for commuter- and passenger-rail services in eastern Toronto for $308 million.
The two- and three-track corridor runs east of Union Station in downtown Toronto to a junction in Pickering, Ontario, where the line connects with GO Transit’s separate right of way.
The above is quoted from an article on the Progressive Railroading website and I was excited about it enough to share it here. New coaches, new engines and now more trackage. It’s certainly a move in the right direction.
