Default Free travel on VIA

I can't believe there are enough coaches in the country.¬* A million people will be riding in Trudeau hoppers.

I know I'll be in the line up.¬* It's probably a lottery of some kind and I'll be the first looser..¬*

Could be fun though.

That's pretty cool!¬*

Nice way to say¬*thanks, too.¬* Upgrades are probably extra (for sleepers and class upgrades).¬*¬* Still, I have noticed that Amtrak's prices are way up compared with a few years ago.¬* Oh well, so much for alternative transporation.¬*¬* A trip we took from Lancaster, PA¬*to Savannah, GA two years ago is now $200 more.¬*

Anyways sounds like july would be a great time to ride the rails even as paid client, just think of all the great (war) stories being told to the sway of the rails .....
