If I were to call any of the stations stunning, it's this one. The gray paneling when descending on the escalator? The technicolour windows? The gorgeous waiting areas for GO transfers? Beautiful. Looked like a real transit depot for the 21st century. Somewhere you don't mind waiting for your transfer at.
 

All these years, I thought this was actually the "Highway 401 Station" even though I'm sure I read "407" many times. I thought it was a great idea to have a station on Toronto's busiest highway to convince some of those drivers to take the subway downtown instead of driving. Turns out, it's on a tolled highway that most drivers avoid.
 
Tried to park here at 8:10 this morning to check out the new line. Not a single available parking space... unless you count the myriad of empty "hybrid" and handicapped spaces sitting their empty while cars drove around looking for somewhere to park. Maybe they need to re-think the number of spaces set aside given how under-utilized they are.
