There was only one train problem yesterday, but it was unrelated to the CN strike. The Oakville to Toronto train at 7:05 a.m. was cancelled because of an equipment problem.GO Transit trains are staffed by CN employees under contract, except for the Milton line, which is operated by CPR.
Two things that I personally noticed.
- The lack of freight trains. I only saw one heading eastbound through Pickering.
- Midday Go Trains continued to run from 5 to 8 minutes late. In the past Go has blamed the delays onto the freight trains having the right of way over passenger trains. Give them a chance and I’m sure that they will up with something new for the delay.
