Originally they were going to electrify to the Don Valley layover so it wasn't going to be for the Milton Trains. Maybe the extra Barrie or Kingston electric locos?If it's for Milton Line trains they won't have to.

I wonder if they're going this route to allow the Don Branch to be used for HSR.
Or maybe they plan on turning the Leslie bike trail back into tracks?
I personally think that the HSR proposal is what made Metrolinx reconsider the Don Valley Layover. I guess behind the scenes HSR might be further along than we think?FWIW, I do believe electrification will be going forward here in the future.
There's another proposed rail service which may require it.
I don't think that's correct. They were going to electrify the Richmond Hill Line at the Rosedale Siding, not the Don Valley Spur. The bubbled graphic covers above covers a larger area than just the Richmond Hill line but that's what it was for. There was information provided at one point that said the Layover was for the Milton Line. I don't think the track plans for the Don Valley Layover on the Don Spur ever showed electrification.
