I mentioned this on Sean's site already, but the tunnel used to be double tracked until Centralized Traffic Control eliminated the need for it, and it was then decided to run one track through the middle to allow for bigger cars. There is enough track in Hamilton to serve our frieght and passenger needs, but they are owned by 2 different railways, both of which are frieght only. If they were to co-operate and share lines, which historically competing railways have always done, some track time could be freed up for passenger trains. This is the big hurdle for GO.

The new track should at least improve the reliability of the trains and cut down on delays. When the construction is finished and morning trains are back to their regular schedule, I'll report back on this.

If we want that overnight storage, someone needs to contend with Bernie Morelli in ward 2, and win. He is dead set against it.
