Rare Mileage  Due to a washout on the Oakville sub, VIA Trains are detouring through the Halton sub at Milton, Ontario to get to and from Union Station. A couple fellers (Adney, et al) have posted a couple photos of very rare detours on the Halton sub here on railpictures.ca ( Like this shot by James Adney) but the fact remains this has been a very very rare thing until today. More are expected over the next few days, get your shots while you can fellers!

  1. To all: Expect VIA to re-route on the Halton Sub due to Dufferin St. Bridge demolition on Saturday November 30 and Sunday December 1 2013. It is also RUMOURED that there may be re-routes on the Galt and CP Canpa subs to get trains to/from Union and TMC. It is expected that VIA (Amtrak) 97/8 will terminate at Oakville and not re-route though. GO trains will also run every 2 hours on the Milton Line as a result.
