Upon my first photographic railfanning trip to the Oshawa area in seven years, within moments of arrival I was reminded how frequent the trains are and that meets are nothing to jump over. Nonetheless, any CN trains that went by I barely even felt were picture worthy, which is probably one reason I don't bother to go out of my way to go east much. Some relatively decent timing between two GO trains allowed for this shot. In only about a year, this has quickly become the new face of GO Transit. Bombardier hasn't given the TTC the same luck wit their new face unfortunately. The new cabcars are now in the 30 range, and are pretty about as common if not more common than the older cabcars now. From my understanding, and would be my best guess, the older cabcars will be converted to regular coaches.

In the distance lies Oshawa yard, and if you look closely, autoracks can be seen throughout the entire background for the GM plant. The Hopkins Street overpass, which quite possibly has become the most popular railfanning location in Canada in recent times, is now ticking down its final days, and should be closed any day now.

  1. Greay shot Daniel..perfect timing. The old GO cab cars don’t really need any conversion as they have been often used in the middle of cosists before. Any conversion might be expensive just to add a few more seats and a bathroom.
