Update on Cascades second train

with one comment

The Vancouver Sun is now reporting that a second train may be added for the Olympic period. But really there is no resolution to the fundamental problem of the Canadian Border Services Agency trying to collect $0.5m in annual extra revenue from  Amtrak, which makes the second train unecomic to operate. They are “still talking” – which just shows that our federal politicians are simply ducking the issue.
