Not often does GO Transit run equipment trains at this length (L21), but with the pandemic loads of bilevels were stored through out the GO Transit network from the start of 2020 onward. The morning equipment train to Willowbrook which handled a 23 car consist with 668 solo is running is now back from Willowbrook in Toronto to Lewis Yard off the CN Grimsby Sub with an old school cabcar leader and 668 once again pushing hard on the rear as the train rolls through Oakville GO Station.

  1. 668 is one of those MP54′s is it not?

  2. Very neat – nice catch.
    reminds me of the early GO, when real railroaders operated the trains, riding the last inbound morning Georgetown GO one cold January morning the seasoned CN conductor ( GO contracted CN to operate) commandeered a pair of SW’s ( 1300 ‘s) to rescue our stranded, already late, jam packed GO train at Weston station and drag us to Union, we were an hour late, but we did get to Union.
