Running and Railfanning

The plan for tomorrow morning is to combine railfanning and running into a single activity. Run, ride, run, ride, watch, ride, run.

If it all goes well, that translates into a short run from home to Danforth Station to catch the GO for a two-stop ride to Exhibition Station.

Then I’ll do a 12km run that includes two level crossings of the CP North Toronto sub, and a pedestrian tunnel under the GO Newmarket sub and a short bit on the West Toronto Railpath to Bloor Station.

I’ll catch the UP Express there to get back to Union Station where I’ll see VIA Rail #1 “The Canadian” departing for Vancouver at 9:45 A.M.. Finally, it’ll be back on the GO again to get back to Danforth and another short run home.

Bonus: I’ll be back on the GO at Danforth with Mac just after noon to head out to Aldershot to meet up with the other half of the fam for a Sunday afternoon extended family get together. Sadly we’ll have to drive back to Toronto after that which will likely feature terrible traffic.
