GOT 606 - Go Transit - Strachan Street
In this photograph, looking west from Bathurst Street, GO Transit (GOT) 606 pushes an afternoon commuter train toward Strachan Street, and GO Transit's Weston Subdivision. The train has just left Toronto Union Station during the afternoon commuter rush. In the background construction is underway for a road-over-rail grade separation project at Strachan Street.

In recent years, many major improvement projects have been started on the Weston Subdivision. Grade separation projects, including the one seen here at Strachan Street, have been started at Denison Road and Carlingview Drive. At Denison Road and Carlingview Drive rail-over-road grade separation projects are underway. In addition to the rail-road separation projects, a rail-over-rail grade separation project was undertaken at West Toronto Junction.

  1. I like your TGsCAnadianRailroading_MMziTKB collection Tom Gatermann (But I recognize I have a bias being a Canuck)
    I hope you get a chance to see more railroads than just Toronto's over time. Some of the trackage through the Rockies is spectacular. Vancouver has lots to see as well, as do the Prairies.
    (then there are the trains in Europe....😊)

  2. Thanks a lot, Jim Robertson. I was hoping that the Plus would stick around long enough that I could eventually fill the collection with more images from outside the GTA. Guess, when I do, they will have to be posted elsewhere.

    I've been lucky to photograph trains in France and Czechia, as well as trams in Austria and Hungary.
