Fourth morning Hamilton departure to be added on Lakeshore Line in  2008 due to new Layover facility

In addition to the Liuna Station (Hamilton North) improvements mentioned on http://gokw.org earlier this year, which itself have no start date, The Hamilton Spectator (April 12) reports that GO is quickly forging ahead with service improvements to Hamilton using the existing station. Starting in 2008, GO will add a fourth morning departure to it’s weekday commuter trains from the Hunter St GO (ex TH&B) Station. This is all due to the imminent construction of a new layover facility just east of the current Station.  

This layover facility eliminates the need to deadhead empty trains to and from Hamilton, and allows GO to run additional trains in it’s place. $6 million was allocated for this project.
