Now that Canada has finally done away with its mask mandate, i can plan a trip on the Canadian again. This time I plan to ride in January. Never did the trip in winter before. Should be fun. Hopefully the dome will be there for us coach passengers.

Sounds as if, Jim, you are into a four night "low level assault course".

Oh, and where did I get that line from? It's a line of script within the movie "Caught on a Train". From one who has "been over a time or two", it's a reasonably authentic flick, even if all the on-board filming is done aboard equipment standing at the Ostend, BE station. There are also authentic scenes shot at Frankfurt/Main as well.

To each his own of course; but grief, even at your, I somehow think, "thirtysomething" age, if it were me, someone best have a Ruger to my head before I'd even think of such a masochistic adventure.

Well Jim, if you R-E-A-L-L-Y plan to go through with your "assault course", this will not impact you.

Anyone else planning a "Canadian" journey - where anyone else around here would be riding - this development could greatly impact your plans.

Take heart Jim, I once knew face to face a "most economical gentleman". He would ride "Segunda" in Mexico!!!
