I am planning a bucket-list trip on both Amtrak and Via Rail, but as this is the forum for VIA Rail, anything about the Amtrak part of my trip is another topic in another section. Does this look feasible: Maple Leaf from New York-> Corridor to Montreal-> Ocean RT-> Corridor to Toronto-> Canadian to Winnipeg-> Winnipeg to Churchill RT-> Canadian to Toronto-> Canadian to Vancouver-> Cascades to Seattle, or should I cut out some parts.
Also, if I decide to go with this plan and ignore the alternatives, when is the best to undertake the trip that I just mentioned, weather-wise? And on the Canadian, is Prestige Class worth it, or is it too much of a splurge?
Feel free to give comments or suggestions about the contemplated trip.
