I like this idea a lot, but I don't think it would be a good idea to just pull a full-length GO train east of Hunter station to serve a bunch of 3-car-length platforms. That's a lot of equipment for little return. On the other hand, possibly Metrolinx could use a few more of those Diesel Motor Units currently employed by the Union Pearson Express, and an order for Hamilton could be rolled in here. Running a separate local feeder line into Hunter Street station would not only ferry people to the GO Trains and Downtown Hamilton, but open the possibility of extending service further west, perhaps to Kirkendall North, or up to the Botanical Gardens and Aldershot.
