Via train passing Rapido trains HQ
Author: dxm332

Rapido has just posted a video of two passenger trains meeting on the cn line beside thier HQ in markham
This is located on the cn freight only line from Pickering to mac yard

To say the least this not a normal occurance!

Were these trains reroutes caused by the go transit incident on Saturday or is there another reason....

There was going to be a diversion last weekend due to track work between Pickering and Rouge Hill.
The diversions were extended because to the tragic incident.

Thanks for the info.

Checked the go info site (one of the worst i have ever had to use), and it appears they do not expect the trackage to reopen until the weekend.

Hopefully jason from rapido can stand all that via action rolling by his office

Thanks. Oh Jason. I wish we had more F units in the U.S. I like them so much better than the silver wedgies.
