    • It was mentioned on the discord chat but some are suspecting it is an error. Then again, the 2nd new platform at Bayview is being tagged as for emergency use only and not really seen as an active platform. So a crossover isn't really needed for Bayview but yes it would limit the use of the second platform at Corso Italia. It has to be a mistake. Why build Corso Italia with two platforms if only one sees regular usage. Plus they no doubt need the passing track of the station to maintain frequency...
    • Nobody mentionned the fact that they got rid of the crossover switch north of Corso Italia station. Is that an error ?
    • There still is a switch at the halfway point between Greenboro and South Keys for trains to transfer between. I was speculating earlier: I was thinking... despite the line not being double tracked, the airport train could continue to Bayview. It would make the switch after leaving the western platform at South Keys and head north, and cross over to the other track at the mid-point between South Keys and Greenboro. Obviously the passing tracks make it that the frequency would need to be carefully watched but the airport train could run right behind or as closely as possible to the mainline train to make its way to Bayview and ultimately use the new second platform. All this is provided that the passing tracks are long enough to accommodate the Flirt and a single LINT with the required spacing between to not leave a train partially in a switch while the mainline was in the station.   Unlikely this would happen but perhaps possible from time to time. And it wouldn’t disrupt the mainline frequency or service. So to summarize: If the Mainline northbound Bayview train has the Airport LINT as close as possible riding behind to squeeze through the passing tracks to make its way to Bayview, it wouldn’t conflict with the southbound. It would operate as a direct non stop service between South Keys and Bayview (slowing and stopping) as needed due to the mainline Trillium train directly ahead of it. Really doubt it would work or be done but an interesting idea to think about.
    • If the link isn’t listed on the sites themselves I’ll re-add it tonight.
