Oshawa Rail Yards Notes
The Oshawa GM truck production plant is in the process of being restarted which, when completed, will generate aditional local rail traffic. The CN Oshawa yard is currently being used for car and train storage, is home to yard job 546 and is often nearly full. CN Trains 516 (Mac Yard to Belleville) & 517 (Belleville to Mac Yard) and others are daily regulars at Oshawa Yard.
The CP Oshawa yard is not being used and it's access to the CP Belleville Sub main line is expected to be used when Metrolinx expands rail service east to Clarington - info in this link: https://www.clarington.net/en/do-business/go-east-clarington.asp

This is a busy area with talking detectors and plenty of radio communications between train crews, RTC, track foremen & MOW crews.

To those Railfans who are monitoring with radios that can transmit on the Railroad Frequencies: Please DO NOT TALK TO TRAIN CREWS USING YOUR RADIO! It is a SERIOUS VIOLATION of Federal Law, YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED and you will discredit the hobby. All it takes is a supervisor or a concerned crew member to report it. WE CAN LISTEN IN, BUT WE HAVE NO AUTHROITY TO TRANSMIT!
