You know, Business Class on the Maple Leaf isn't eligible to use it.  The Maple Leaf isn't really a Via Business Class offering (they sell it a $1 upcharge Toronto-Niagara Falls on the Via ticket in conjunction with the Amtrak Business Class purchase).  Only Business Class passengers on the Via Corridor trains and Sleeper Plus and Prestige on the Canadian are eligible to use it (plus Via's elite frequent travelers).  Bottom line, while it is an Amtrak serviced station, Amtrak passengers can't use it.

 

That actually makes sense since Business Class on VIA Rail Corrider trains, and Amtrak Business Class have nothing in common service wise.

 

The closest service that Amtrak has is Acela First Class service, and as I have ridden both recently even the Acela First Class service pales to VIARail's Business Class.   

 

Back to Name The Station..............which station is this ?
