Go Train Service Halted


At about 2:30pm today, a non-passenger (frieght) frain derailed near Mimico Station in Etobicoke. All Go Transit commuter train service from Union Station has been stopped, and there has yet to be any indication as to when it'll resume. The web site seems to be swamped and may not be operational as well. Commuters are advised to find another way home (rides, TTC, etc).
