Snakes on a Train: GO Transit Train Flooded in Toronto

Go Transit in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) operates trains and buses--but not boats. Which is evident in the photo above of a GO Train stranded in a lake in that city.

The train got stuck when a huge and sudden downpour flooded large sections of the Toronto area, including this stretch of tracks. Over 1,000 people on the train first fled to the upper levels of the cars to stay dry before being rescued by police using boats.

In addition to the flooding, passengers on one car had an unexpected visitor--a snake swam between the seats. Talk about Snakes on a Train!

As far as I know, there are no plans to equip GO Trains with life preservers in the future . . . .
