Until service reductions due to COVID-19 began, it had been a decade or more since an F59 last ran on the Milton Line. With all lines except the Lakeshore running 6 car trains, the COVID-19 pandemic has created the opportunity to see some things that would not normally take place. Seeing as the City of Mississauga has installed signs on most of the bridges on the Galt Sub, and COVID-19 is ultimately the reason for the F59 being there, I figured it would be very appropriate to catch one passing the relevant signage.

  1. Nice shot! Actually the Uxbridge/Newmarket trains have the odd 12 car consist running around as well as the Lakeshore line. I was scratching my head the other day when 12 cars stopped where i was working.

  2. i got it yesterday going west on 2705 glad to see them on the Milton line again

  3. This is great David. Excellent to capture something that shows the “sign of the times.”
