Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

King Street Underpass at the Transit HUB
There is a definite shift in the tracks, I don't see how the original alignment could be returned though, because the bridge is in the wrong place. Hopefully they will stretch out the curves so that it doesn't slow trains down. They should already be going somewhat slowly, but right now, they just crawl up to the station. They could shave a half minute of travel time off here easily.

As for incline, the bridge may have raised the track, but it doesn't change the long distance profile towards Stratford, the crossings at West and Park are still at grade, and that grade hasn't changed, the incline starts afterwards.
