This is the 5th and final part of a series. Go here to read part 1 if you wish.
After leaving the Bathurst Street bridge – a very good spot to railfan from – I walked east beside the Toronto downtown tracks toward Union Station.
Another pair of UP Express trains passed me as I walked. I used my telephoto to capture the moment when they passed each other. I like how the Spadina Avenue bridge framed them.
Soon I passed Spadina Avenue and continued on east. A GO Transit train was headed east toward the station, while a VIA Rail train was heading west.
A little patience caught the nose of VIA 6426 in sunshine.
A few seconds later, GO Transit 656 passed under me, pushing the train toward Union Station.
Eventually I got back to the Skywalk, and took a photo from within the overpass and included the CN Tower… as much as I could fit, anyway.
I walked through the Great Hall of Union Station – busy now with people hurrying to and fro – and on to the east end of the station. There’s some construction taking place adjacent to the station.
Earlier, I took a selfie just off the Skywalk, near the Union Pearson Express station.
Here’s a quick map I did showing the downtown Toronto rail corridor.
Red arrows show good railfan locations – at Bathurst Street, Spadina Avenue and the platform just outside the Skyway.
I hope you enjoyed this series featuring GO Transit and more in Toronto! I have a few more Toronto-related posts to come but for now I’ll write about other things. Despite what people in the city might think, there is life outside Toronto! 😉
