    LCBO / The Beer Store

    Personally after the Beer Store contract ends, I would allow any retail outlet to sell any alcohol products that have 10-12% alcohol by volume or less. Basically most beers, wines and coolers. I would keep the LCBO for spirit sales, and all of the above, but also change policy that retailers...

    General railway discussions

    I thought that occurred to me the other day, in the Era of shipping containers, what products are transported in rail box cars now? I watched a train pass by with a number of boxcars as part of the consist.

    Bradford Bypass (MTO, Hwy 400 - Hwy 404)

    I would think it would be 488 after nearby parallel 88, but MTO numbering logic is beyond me.

    Toronto | 160 Front West | 239.87m | 46s | Cadillac Fairview | AS + GG

    That was my first reaction of that photograph too, just what city is that pictured and what relevance does it have to this thread ?

    General railway discussions

    I often check out Virtual Railfan channel on YouTube that shows many live feeds of railways across America including one in Revelstoke BC. I have noticed on the American railways, many trains with piggybacked UPS, FedEx, Wal-Mart and even Amazon trailers being transported by rail and I have...

    Toronto Breweries, Brew Pubs, Bottle Shops

    Great to know the Brewery that started in my hometown of Port Perry, now has 3 locations, Port Perry, Newmarket and now the Distillery District!

    VIA Rail

    I am just curious, are the names attached to departures relevant to VIA anymore? I have not heard references to any names except "The Canadian" and to lessor extent "The Ocean" for years, even close to decades.

    Toronto | Prince George Landing | 15.85m | 3s | Stockworth | SRN Architects Inc.

    All I can say to this is the signage advertising this development has been on the property for several years. I have driven past this location many, many times

    Toronto | 681 Dnipro Boulevard (Oshawa) | ?m | 3s | Condor Properties Ltd | S&C Architects Inc

    Love the rock cliff in the background in the render. That definitely says South East Oshawa to me. 😁

    Beyond (Oshawa) | ?m | 18s | Atria | A&Architects

    There was a Metro (former A&P) at the Midtown mall just to the west of downtown Oshawa. That space is now empty, as is most of the mall itself except for repurposed offices. I keep waiting for a total redevelopment proposal for all the Midtown Mall lands. As it sits currently, it just screams...

    In my opinion, the senior staff, who are used to and worked their way up in this type of model have no problem staying with an employer, however newer younger staff are harder to retain as staff under this model.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Will the service pattern remain single track until the demolition of the RT, or will both tracks be used with only half a platform on the west side until the RT demolition?

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Hopefully this shows well enough. The tunnel from Union to the Royal York went from VIA's arrival area just to the west of the ramp doors up to front street. The Royal York is still connected to the PATH system from the East side into Royal Bank Plaza just on the North Side of the Subway station.

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    I believe this fencing was only installed because too many bus passengers were un-safely crossing Bay St. to and from the old bus terminal and the main Union Station instead of using the bridge across. Now that this will no longer be an issue, the fencing can be permanently removed.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    GO Transit employees have never struck in the history of the company. I'm sure all rail yards will be targeted for picket lines including places like the Lincolinville yard in Stouffville, the Allendale yard in Barrie and all the other overnight storage yards in the system.
