Local residents, including a father and son sitting on a bench with fishing rod set pondside awaiting a bite, enjoy a sunny Summer afternoon at Grenadier Pond in the High Park area of Toronto, as a brand new "GO train" passes by during the first few months of the Government of Ontario's then-experimental GO Transit commuter operation. This area was formerly part of the Village of Swansea, until it was annexed into Toronto earlier in the year. St. Joseph's Hospital in nearby Sunnyside is visible in the distance.

Needless to say, the familiar GO logo and green colours have been a regular sight on trains passing by ever since.
