The ERMF continues to take shape


“The East Rail Maintenance Facility (ERMF) will be an approximately 500,000 square foot facility located in Whitby that will provide mechanical maintenance, body repair, as well as day-to-day cleaning and operational services – all essential in order to provide backend support for regional rail expansion. “ per Metrolinx website.


Certainly could make good use of that piece of equipment – the 'cherry picker' that is.


And a modern historic image – the Hopkins Street Overpass – from whence this image is captured - is now history.


One of my last images from The Overpass.

P.S. With The Overpass gone, where is your East GTA fave railfan spot?

  1. With this location now gone, I typically revert to Liverpool, Beare or the new Ajax GO parking garage for westbounds. Not that many places for Eastbounds, I guess Liverpool would be the place to go. All that being said, nothing compares to Hopkins.

  2. Spending lots of time here when down south (more so 2010-2013), I liked the fact one could count cars on a CP train if unable to make it over.
