Oakwood station's main entrance has pick-up sticks gracing its façade:

Interesting that Oakwood isn't listed as one of the stations that will receive artwork (Mount Dennis, Caledonia, Cedarvale, Eglinton, Science Centre and Kennedy) - but the rendering from 2016 does show something on the facade...

Do they plan to rename Eglington station to something like Yonge-Eglington? Found it odd that there’s a stop called Eglington on a line where every stop is on Eglington.

FYI its Eglinton, no second g.

But no they are just calling it Eglinton station, which, as we have discussed here and agree, its silly for the reason you mentioned. But, thats the way it be.

From the transcript (helpfully linked at the bottom of the blog post):

Well, Matt, it’s going to be close to the end of the year. September, October, November, that span of time. We’re not very precise at this point in time because, you know, when these big projects complete, there’s always a few loose ends that must be clarified and must be resolved before the service kicks off.
