Rail Fans Canada had the privilege of an invitation to explore the future terminus station at Limebank, and we can't wait to share this extraordinary experience with you. The O-Train Line 2 expansion will significantly extend the line from its original 8km to an impressive 20km, with a total of 11 new and revamped stations.
A standout feature of this expansion is the incorporation of elevated segments, adding a unique architectural flair to the overall design. But that's not all—there's an exciting bonus for travelers: the introduction of a separate spur line, Line 4, known as the Airport Link.

Line 4 stretches across 4km and boasts three stations, including South Keys.
