Disabled freight train causes delays to GO Train Kitchener line
Passengers using the GO Train Kitchener line can expected delays Friday morning due to a temporarily disabled CN freight train that blocked two tracks near the Georgetown GO station.
The train has since been repaired and cleared but a spokesperson with Metrolinx says there is still a 'significant backlog' of trains in the area and Kitchener line customers could face residual delays as teams navigate the added congestion.
Other routes and services may be delayed or cancelled as a result.
