Just taking a quick glance but the report seems a bit short sighted. No mention of Bolton service, Richmond Hill line doesn't continue on to Bloomington, no midtown corridor proposal. I feel like there have been better proposals on this forum.

Sadly the frequency on the Stouffville is less than what Metrolinx proposed in the GO Expansion Business Case (6 train vs 8 train per hour) in the off-peak.

The suburb-to-suburb connection using the CP alignment is something the Toronto region would really benefit from, but I bet there are some raised eyebrows in Calgary this morning.

Did a video on this!


Hey @Reecemartin, I like watching your videos and I think they make good points, but I wanted to just offer one constructive suggestion. Railfans love maps, trains, and renderings so I think your videos would benefit if you threw in more visuals to show what you're talking about instead of it just being you talking to the camera. I know it's (much) more editing work, but all the top youtubers tend to be about 10% footage of them, 90% the subject they're talking about. Just some well-meaning feedback.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks! I am working more stuff in over time as I improve, for this video it was a case of just needing to get it out quick!

The TRBOT Released a big new report on Regional Rail for the Toronto Region today:

https://www.bot.com/Portals/0/NewsDocuments/3292021News Release- Regional rail offers pragmatic solution to transportation woes .pdf


Lots of smart thinking and stuff I think the seasoned UrbanToronto viewer would enjoy! I did a Twitter Thread Summarizing and I may do a video!


Cheers!
Reece, did you get the report early on embargo? You had a pretty detailed video ready to go.
