GO Transit: It was 50 years ago today...

Postby MACTRAXX » Tue May 23, 2017 3:37 am

Everyone:

50 years ago today - May 23, 1967 - GO Transit Rail began operations on the Lakeshore route
through Toronto Union Station. As many of us know what originally was an experiment became
an overwhelming success story and evolved into the current GO Rail system with multiple lines
that we now have today.

Does anyone have any GO historical pictures or videos that they can post?
Is the Toronto media covering GO and any anniversary celebration that occur today?

ETT/PTT effective May 23, 1967:

GO's own historical timeline:

As most of us know this is a significant milestone for what has become one of the busiest
commuter rail operations in all of North America which is an impressive feat in itself...
