The schedule options appear to be (assuming no changes to the train times)
Chicago 7:20 AM 6:00 PM
Detroit 1:50 PM 12:15 AM
Windsor 5:45 PM 5:30 AM
Toronto 9:51 PM 10:04 AM
Toronto 12:15 PM 7:35 PM
Windsor 4:30 PM 11:44 PM
Detroit 6:23 PM 6:28 AM
Chicago 10:56 PM 10:46 AM
The daytime westbound appears to be too close for comfort, while the eastbound has more time than is probably necessary. It would be nice if the train schedules could be adjusted. The overnights also have extra time, but it is unlikely that those trains would be scheduled at different times. I wouldn't be suprised if these trains were still not provided with a bus. There is also a 3rd Wolverine in both directions, but the international connections currently would make no sense at all.
The article also said that there would be through-ticketing, so I am curious as to what the fares will be. Regardless, this is good news and hopefully the through train will one day be restored.
