The Barrie line is also a relatively quick win where electrification would strengthen the case for some infill stations - particularly Caledonia, Highway 7, Mulock, and Innisfil/Alcona. It's also not like Metrolinx can't make headway on multiple corridors at once.The first line to be electrified will likely be Barrie, because of the as mentioned before limit place on the EA for diesel trains travelling over the Davenport Diamond, and because the vendor will likely not wanna start with LSW, LSE due to those projects being more complex. And lastly and most significantly, because it passes through the heart of Doug Ford's Conservative base.
Bramalea/Pearson would likely be second.
