Discussion of Canadian Passenger Rail Services such as AMT (Montreal), Go Transit (Toronto), VIA Rail, and other Canadian Railways and Transit

Moderator: Ken V

In the new timetable effective today (Nov 5) VIA has added an additional round-trip and is now offering up to 20 trains per day.....10 each way on the 450 km route between Ottawa and Toronto. (weekend service varies)

VIA owns nearly 110 km of the route between Ottawa and Brockville (except for some terminal trackage in Ottawa and Smiths Falls) and has extensively rebuilt the line. At Brockville, trains enter CN's Montreal-Toronto main.

And all trains have a Business Class Car offering a ‘First Class’ type product with Station Lounge access, Hot Meal, Beer and Wine service.....
