All track based vehicles that use steel wheeles. (Mtl Metro doesn't cuz 1) they are rubber tires and 2) it's fully underground. As an example. )

That's at Lincolnville, the Northern terminus of the Stouffville line. One thing I'm trying to wrap my head around is aside from the climb out of trench between Unionville and Milken the rest of this route to Toronto is entierly down hill. Kind of pointless to need sand for traction that badly. unless the train sets are running trips on more dominantly up hill trips right after Union, I'm not sure I haven't been around the Stouffville GO Trains for a while.
