As for the new 'platform' at James North, let's hope they at least put up overhead shelters. Geez, I can't believe those pics of GO platforms with no covering.
whatever they are building at Hunter right now is larger than I expected. In the Walnut area you can see it taking shape. It's a big building. I guess it has to fit trains in it which makes sense for the size, I just wasn't thinking of it when construction started.
Nice to see investment in our rail system.
