Can Someone Pull a Rabbit Out of a Hat & Save the ACR Passenger Train?


Unless there is a really good magician, with a really big rabbit in his hat to pull out – yesterday at 3:30 p.m. the last ACR Passenger Train arrived in Hawk Junction, leaving with three passengers to go up to Errington’s. The train won’t go to Hearst, it will travel in reverse – all the way to Hawk Junction. Sometime today, once the Agawa Canyon Tour Train is parked on a siding in the Agawa Canyon; the ACR Passenger Train will return to Sault Ste. Marie.

VIA is notorious for their schedule changes, creating a service that is difficult for passengers to tolerate.

  1. This is exactly what I expected would happen.This rail mark and is leader Mr Brown had a history of dinner train failures.All it took was one Google.Who ever chose this company to run the passenger train service should be fired.
    The owners of these wilderness resorts along this line should be the ones operating the passenger train service as they benefit the most.Then again how many actually use the service.CN could put a passenger car amongst its freight cars.
