I never thought I would see 6-car GO trains on the Lakeshore East Corridor. Back in March, I was wondering how long GO could operate during rush hour using L12 sets that were standing-room only. But then the world changed. GO ridership plummeted 90% almost overnight and service was cut back to hourly. Here we are in mid-July and I finally got up the courage to head back trackside. GO 659 heads past the layover at Henry Street with an L6 set. While some of the rush hour trains are getting longer again and more trains are running, most Lakeshore East services are still L6. How long until the return of L10 and L12 sets running every 15 minutes? Will that ever happen again?
