This might be suggestive of all-day 2-way Hamilton-Toronto train service by 2021 -- to connect to this aforementioned Hamilton-Niagara-only train service. Instead of West Harbour only, Lakeshore West might be extended to also make a stop at both West Harbour and Confederation.

This newly announced Hamilton-Niagara GO train does not go to Toronto -- it goes back and fourth between Confederation/StCat (2021) and extended to Niagara by 2023.

Although the Hamilton-area delay is dissapointing, there is a silver lining:

As far as I know, this is the first-ever GO train that doesn't terminate in Toronto, but Hamilton instead -- it uses Hamilton as a GO train hub. This suggests Hamilton becomes a new GO train hub in the 2021-2024 timeframe.

This also strengthens the business case (and my prediction) for making West Harbour GO the all-day terminus, instead of Hunter GO.
