Tuesday Train #56 GOing on 50

IMGP8489RawConv50 Years ago today on March 23, 1967 the Province of Ontario’s new commuter rail service between Oakville and Pickering, centred on Toronto’s Union Station commenced operations.  To celebrate their 50th Anniversary, Metrolinx, the Provincial Agency that now operates GO Transit has re-acquired one of their original cab-car coaches that was sold in the 1990’s and restored it to an in-service GO Transit appearance.  This car has been donated to the Toronto Railway Museum as part of an exhibit on 50 years of GO Transit and is now on display in Roundhouse Park.
