Ka Ming Local Branch Line (Traditional Chinese: 嘉明支線) is a secondary rail line, or a spur line, from the Texas Corridor Line, in Sussex, Gravenhurst. The spur line is approximately 6 km long, connecting Sussex Centre to the Ka Ming Industrial Park, an suburban industrial park lying outside of the city.

The line only has two stations, Bayley Village and Ka Ming. The runtime for the line is about 4 minutes. The line is operated in conjunction between GO Transit and the municipal government of Sussex.

There are only two round-trips daily during weekdays, departing at 0734 and again at 1613 from Bayley Village Station.

HistoryEdit

The spur line originally was built by the defunct Texas Railways (TR), now merged with GO Transit. The spur line originally began as part of the Texas Corridor Line, but over time, when Texas Corridor Line was extended to Mount Forest, this part of the line was unable to connect with the extension. Hence, this part of the line became a spur line of the Texas Corridor Line beginning July 2003.

Future ExpansionEdit

There are currently plans to extend the spur line into the community of Texas Centre, a community home to about 2,000. The proposed plan is awaiting approval from the parliament before constructions can begin. Further expansion plans include expanding the rail line to connect with Concord County to the north.

GO Transit, in its recently released 2010 - 2020 Ten Year Rail-line Transit Plan, announced that there are plans in the year 2010 to the year 2020 to merge Ka Ming Line with McAssure Line. The extension has not ben formally proposed to the parliament, and the merger would not be expected to occur until the mid 2010s decade. In such an event, Ka Ming GO Station will become the final stop for the McAssure Line. This merger would require a 42 km rail widening and expansion from Charlesbourg to Ka Ming via Bayley Village.
