GOT 233 and GOT 557 at Toronto, ON

In this image, during the afternoon rush hour, GO Transit (GOT) 233, a cab control car, is bringing up the rear of an east bound commuter train that is heading toward Toronto Union Station, on the Union Station Rail Corridor. Meanwhile, GO Transit (GOT) 557 and its train were stopped and waiting to head east into Toronto Union Station. In the background is Rogers Centre, home to the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team.

The Union Station Rail Corridor (USRC) is a busy rail line that stretches to the east and west of Toronto Union Station. The USRC runs, approximately, between the Don River, to the east of union station, and Bathurst Street, to the west of Union Station.

  1. Nice image Tom (even if I am biased re shots of where I lived for 20 years😊)

    1. Thanks a lot, Jim. I've been making almost annual trips to Toronto since 2009, and I'm amazed at much changes each time I visit.

  2. That's a very nice image. So the building with Rogers on it is the station? I was thinking a stadium. :-) Either way lovely building too, impressive.

    1. Thanks a lot, Shelly. The Rogers Centre is a stadium. It's where the Blue Jays play. You can't actually see Toronto Union Station in this image. It's about a half of a mile (.75 kilometers) east of Rogers Centre.
