Removal of Niagara Branch[edit]

I have removed the Niagara service as its own sub-group, because it can be thought of as an extension with the James Street North station to be completed, it repeated information included in the line above, and the footnote now points to a separate section in the Lakeshore West article to explain excursion service. I also put York University and Downsview Park together since the former will be abandoned when the latter is completed, if you have a better idea on how to emphasize it, go for it. --Natural RX 16:06, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Niagara Region service announcement[edit]

Casablanca GO Station, a new station on Casablanca Boulevard in Grimsby.[1] I'm just repeating the confirmation. Secondarywaltz (talk) 18:32, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

The source doesn't state that it'll be named "Casablanca", only that it's located at Casablanca Boulevard in Grimsby. (For comparison, the current carpool lot on Casablanca Boulevard is referred to as Grimsby Carpool Lot.) I think the more generic "Grimsby GO Station" is more appropriate until we have more information about the name that will be used. Mindmatrix 16:05, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
What's really missing is a more definitive source/map to give the stations and the corridor proper names. I would agree with Mindmatrix that Grinsby is more appropriate (as it would match how it is worded in reference to VIA stations), but hopefully a better source can make things more definitive. --Natural RX 20:08, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
There is a site map somewhere. I didn't just make up that name. My computer access is limited, so I need your cooperation in searching back among older references. Perhaps in relation to Confederation GO Station and general expansion of the Niagara service. Thanks. Secondarywaltz (talk) 00:57, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
I just did a quick search, and all recent sources I've seen indicate Grimsby Go Station. For example: Bentley welcomes GO announcement (June 2016), Ontario green lights GO train service to Niagara by 2021 (June 2016), Niagara GO Rail Service Expansion Study (April 2015 - sometimes uses "Grimsby (Casablanca) Station"). Moreover, Go Transit/Metrolinx don't usually name stations after streets, and most that seemingly are named after streets are actually named for the community (eg - Langstaff, Bronte; one exception may be Eglinton, which may named after the street or the community). The only source I've found for "Casablance GO Station" is a PDF (portion of document) from the township of West Lincoln. Other sources say "Casablanca station in Grimsby", though it doesn't appear to be using the station name, just stating its location. I'll update the template to Grimsby, though we can always change it back if we find more reliable refs. Mindmatrix 15:32, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Yes, the link that I had to the GO Transit plans for the station has been removed. See http://transit.toronto.on.ca/archives/weblog/2010/12/12-go_propose.shtml Although Metrolinx has a policy of not giving conflicting names to stations, "Grimsby" gives a better indication as to the destination. 17:02, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
