- Somewhere in Southern Ontario
My comment was specific to the GO proposal to cross the border into NY. Running the GO trains into Niagara Falls, NY, requires rehabilitation of the southernmost track, a switch at the west end and second platform to allow two trains to occupy the station simultaneously and ideally a pedestrian overpass to connect the two. GO Transit's operating crew (Bombardier/Alstom contractors) are not qualified to cross the bridge either. None of this can't be fixed with money, as can CBSA staffing their office on the US side.Not really sure I get that. The capital costs have largely been spent, the Niagara Falls, NY station is already there with Port of Entry facilities designed for both sides from the outset.
