New trains for thought
The new partnership between Via Rail and Amtrak
Via Rail Canada packages are now available through the Amtrak Vacations program. The new partnership between the two rail services means that you can now plan trips to Canada and the US in one transaction. The Cross Canada itinerary, for example, visits Toronto and Niagara Falls before departing for Jasper/Banff and then Vancouver where travellers can then take off for any of the cities that Amtrak services in the US. The Capital to Capital tour includes Toronto, Niagara Falls, Ottawa and Montreal, then a transfer to an Amtrak station for NYC, Philly and Washington. tel: (800) 268-7252; amtrakvacations.com.
