What will happen to the ROW of the SRT once the extension is built? Why are they not able to keep the SRT running while they dig the tunnels?

Why is the 3rd rail on both sides?

The SRT primarly runs in the ROW of the Stouffville GO line, actually, so the ROW will be returned for GO transit's use. The section which is elevated and runs outside of that row has yet to be determined, but it will presumably be abandoned. the SRT will remain operational during construction, BTW.

There is not a second 3rd rail as that photo would suggest, its a modified image which has been reflected in the middle. Notice both sides of the tunnel wall are the exact same. Photoshop.

York University subway station is progressing, set to open in late 2016 or early 2017.

That is a photoshop - someone did a photo, cropped it in halfway (deleted one side), then duplicated the other side and pasted it symmetrically in the place of deleted side.

interesting how the inscription says that it was built in 1919 (MCMXIX), but it didn't actually open until 1927..

If you're referring to Vaughan Centre station I'd agree. It's a welcome step up from what we normally get.

I always had to laugh at that name too! It makes me imagine some perverted old man doing inappropriate things in the bushes.

lol, there is a subway station in the planning phases named Cummer too, but it will probably be renamed Drewry when it reaches construction as the road that is its namesake changes name as it crosses over. All the current planning documents call it Cummer though.

I've been in Toronto for a few days now and I'll just say that I haven't been on the new streetcars but I've only seen them running on Spadina Avenue.

they are only on spadina right now, there have been delays in delivery from Bombardier meaning that there are a lot fewer in service than there were supposed to be at this point.

Two-part post about the Union-Pearson Express:

1. The Mount Dennis Station on the Eglinton Crosstown Line will potentially have a connection with the GO Transit Kitchener Line. Will the Union-Pearson express serve any Mount Dennis station on the Kitchener Line or bypass it?

2. The Union-Pearson Express will be the most expensive airport rail link to ride in North America. Most Toronto-based customers would pay $19; Those without a PRESTO card would pay $27.50. A "family" ticket (which is only available to non-PRESTO customers) would be $55.
