Toronto Railfan

Post by atsf sp » Wed Aug 19, 2015 9:54 am

Hi everybody. I will be heading up to Toronto this weekend and I was wondering where the best place to watch trains is. I was hoping for somewhere with VIA/CN/CP/GO all togeher but i'm not sure if thats possible. Also is there any way to view Macmillan yard? In the past I have been to Agincourt and plan on heading back there. Also what is visible at the Willowbrook/TMC? Thanks in advanced for the help.

Go Trains run on the Cross Hatched lines. I believe that only some local freights serve the go-owned tracks. VIA Rail serves the Lakeshore Line (as does Amtrak west of Toronto), the line to Guelph, and the line to London via Hamilton
