Caption: GO Transit's most scenic line, but also the most treacherous, has to be the Richmond Hill line. This mostly includes the section between Mile 2 and 10 of the former CN Bala Subdivision. The line traverses parallel to the Don River for most of that distance, and that ends right here. Slugging along at a steady 35mph, GO 837 crosses over the Don Valley Parkway, after having previously crossed under it further south just a few minutes prior. On the right behind where the GO train disappears, the CP Belleville Sub crosses over. A second train would be nice, but there's obviously a fat chance of that. The famous rainbow tunnel was painted by Norwegian artist Berg Johnson in 1972, who dangerously suspended himself from the Bala Sub. Some say a train came by and cut the rope, causing him to fall and hurt himself, which wouldn't surprise me. Nonetheless, the locals have done what they can to keep the tunnel art in good condition. The Don Valley Parkway in the foreground is experiencing the rush hour crush, which certainly is not doing a good job keeping up with the GO train.
