Now, what's most intriguing to me at this point is that something I mentioned previously, elsewhere on this site, the 'double figure-8' concept for LRT...may very well provide a solution to this diabolical conundrum known as 'Where To Put The Maintenance Yard'. More news on this as it develops.

In the meantime, how's this for an option that sits outside the only two I've been able to come up with at either end of the proposed B-line route: West Harbour.

Think of it: you'd have a northbound path down Bay, potentially opening up this feeder area, maybe even connecting to the James Street North GO terminal, to boot.

No, it wouldn't be at a terminus, the suggested supposed requirement, but it would take advantage of vacant land, be 'out of the way', and there's already a shunting yard there, so surely this wouldn't be too great an inconvenience to have it located there. And imagine; it would take care of the need to remediate to the extent that residential development would.
