  1. It’s gone – a lot of new grading being done ’round these parts now.

  2. Apparently the shop structure (still owned by CN)is within the proposed access path to the recently announced MacNab Street North GO station. Time will tell.

  3. Keith, what’s this about the shop being in the way of the GO project?
