Bloor GO Station is a very interesting spot, as in current times it is quite a mix between modern architecture and very old. The station itself along with the entire Weston Sub finished receiving a major upgrade in 2015, making it one of the more modern aspects of the area. On the contrary, there are many old buildings and other things serving as a reminder of how industrial The Junction area used to be. A couple of examples are seen here in this photo with some old buildings and a smokestack on the left hand side, as well as the Wallace Avenue bridge right behind the signals, which was built in 1908 originally.
Here at Bloor on a nice sunny morning, GO F59PH #559 leads the last of the morning's Milton line trains toward the USRC on the Galt Sub. The F59s only date back to the beginning of the 90's, which is really not that old when you compare it to a couple other things in this photo, but as far as trains go, 30 years and counting is a pretty long life, especially for a commuter railroad.

  1. Too bad they did not have some murals painted and limit the low-life graffiti crap.
