Canada has a lot going for it, but its smaller population is concentrated near the southern border. It is more densely populated than one would expect by just looking at the numbers.



It's true that about 80% of the population of Canada lives within about 100 miles of the US border, it still offers good, solid, passenger train travel the entire length of the country. It's pretty impressive -- and in spite of where the population is concentrated, there is little "density" to speak of outside of their 5 main cities.

I'm glad that you had such a positive experience. Which routes did you ride?


I rode the Montreal to Quebec City route and back. Everything ran right on time, the service was friendly, it was efficient and easy. Even the internet service was fairly consistent.
