East Gwillimbury has two lines of railway tracks running through it:
1. GO (Government of Ontario) tracks that run from Toronto to Barrie
2. CN (Canadian National) tracks that run east and west from Halifax (Nova Scotia) to Prince Rupert (British Columbia) and north and south from New Orleans (Louisiana) to Toronto.
When it snows here, the tracks get snowed on too. (Imagine that!) But have you ever wondered how the snow is cleared after a heavy snowfall"
