Since Today is the first day for the new train out of Hamilton, GO has begun to use the overnight storage yard. The trains were sitting there all weekend - an awesome sight throughout Corktown.

Full kudos to Councillor Bob Bratina (Ward 2) for spearheading this initiative. When I first moved to Corktown, he told me, "Mark my words, if I have my way you'll see go trains parked atop the bridge over our street".
It took a couple of years but here we are. I believe he was the biggest proponent for this on council, and as a member of the GO board was able to help make the case for this.
With the announced improvements at the high level bridge, I hope this will just be the beginning for GO expansion here.
I know I'm gushing a bit here, and for now it's "only" one new train but the sight of the trains above all of the north-south streets downtown brought a whole new feel to the city for me this weekend.
