I have no clue what I would do in downtown tbh. I don't like how the rail corridor separates the city from the waterfront, but at the same time having it anyplace north would divide downtown into two. Putting Union Station on the Midtown Corridor approximately where Summerhill is would be beneficial for the ability to have two Union Stations, one at Summerhil and the other at Dupont (and a third probably somewhere between The Junction and Ossington). However, having it that far north would mean forcing a transfer onto our north-south subway lines to reach downtown, which would be a transfer+congestion nightmare.In the fantasy planning world, how would you design a GO Train system if you were starting completely from scratch? In other words if there were absolutely no existing rail lines whatsoever, and you were able to lay track exactly where it is best needed for today's transit needs. I'm just curious how GO should look like if it did not need to rely on where rail lines were laid in the late 1800's and early 1900's
I would put many more rail lines in Scarborough however, around 3. Have them interline together on their way downtown for frequent service in it's own tunnel downtown. Basically, copying the Sydney/Melbourne way of doing things. SmartTrack on crack?
