I was out all of this morning and I don't think I saw any single trains operating, they were all doubles. There was a double unit stopped for a while at Tremblay, and so the trains were alternating on the other platform. Service was being maintained and a train was arriving every 2.5 minutes. As well, at Tunney's, there was also a train parked at one platform, so arriving trains were stopping on the other platform. In both cases, the stopped train departed after some time. Potentially they were testing scenarios or could have been a glitch. But in any case, the service was maintained with the stopped train without issue!
