Well, for me this defies explanation.  I do know someone out there will have one.  Here is GO 9832 cab control car with a couple of single level cars behind it followed by 5 bilevels and GO 506 (out of pic). Why this combination? Equipment shortage? I've never seen another GO train quite like this since.

  1. First bi-level coaches; 1977, first bi-level cab cars; 1983. Six years of intermingling!

  2. I was a brakeman on the single level cars and by the time I became conductor in 84 most of the GO coaches were bi levels.

  3. Thanks guys. Well so much for that being a mystery. I don’t know if I have any other shots with this sort of combination, thats why I asked about it.

  4. The bilevel cabcars didn’t come along until 84, meanwhile the bilevel coaches were already approaching a decade in use at that point. This happened quite a bit, though I think one single level Hawker and a set of bilevels behind it were more common.

  5. Like John, I saw this several times on the Georgetown line as well.

  6. Actually, single level cab cars with bilevels were common for a while…presumably while the bilevel cab cars were still being delivered. I have several shots of them myself–John

  7. Wow. Now there’s an interesting train
