Willowbrook Yard is a rail yard and rolling stock maintenance facility[1] in Toronto, Canada.

It was originally a Canadian National Railway facility. It was purchased by GO Transit in the early 1970s. Since then, it has undergone a complete transformation and expansion and it includes several repair shops as well as washing facilities and storage tracks. Bombardier Transportation currently has a 5-year contract with two options of five years each to maintain the trains.[2]

The yard is west of Mimico station and is across the main tracks from the VIA Rail Toronto Maintenance Facility.
