arienc - "I don't see Longwood/Aberdeen as being fully accessible to GO".

To clarify, the existing GO line could easily branch over to Longwood/Aberdeen from the current route at Dundurn just south of Main. There's a "wye" there.

I'm one of those people who believes that the City and Go aren't being anywhere near innovative enough when it comes to GO service. The existing GO track into the Hunter Street Station should be utilized for all future Hamilton GO service even when it extends to Niagara by continuing east on the TH&B/CPR line that crosses Main East at Gage and meets the CN just west of Ottawa Street. It should then continue to Niagara on CN.

Why take traffic away from the multi-modal Hunter Street Station that was rebuilt for the purpose. It could easily accomodate LRT with an underground portion all the way west to Queen Street. That's the beauty of Union Station in Toronto train, street car, subway, all in the same spot.
