My family and I will be vacationing this summer in lower Michigan. I found out my favorite MLB team will be playing in Toronto so we are going to spend a few nights there as well. One day we are making a run down to Niagara Falls. I was excited to see Via had one train running between the two each day. Then it hit me. Sure enough, that Via train is Amtrak's Maple Leaf. Doh!. I was hoping to get to experience some of Via's equipment.
So now I am looking for a quick and inexpensive roundtrip on Via from Toronto and looking for suggestions. Also, is there any way to know what type of equipment is used on each train? I would really like to ride some of the older equipment at least one way.
One idea I had was Toronto to Oshawa and back. Looks like we can do train 64 & 63 which I think are trains that uses older equipment.
