LETTERS TO THE ISLAND: Riding the rails to Toronto


Niagara Gazette — Those green and white accordion-shaped GO (Government of Ontario) Trains run here in the summer on a schedule designed to accommodate daytripping Torontonians.

And for the carless or the cautious, there’s still commuter service to Toronto – via GO Bus, which transports travelers to Burlington, to board GO Train from there. Somehow we just can’t imagine “Last Bus to Burlington” much inspiring Mickey Dolenz.

The General Brock, old soldier of Peninsula rails, has faded away.

Come visit. We’ve got pictures.
