The Start of a New Era: First Day in Service of VIA Rail Canada’s New Siemens Venture Fleet
For the first time in over 20 years, VIA Rail Canada welcomes the first train of a brand-new fleet to serve passengers in the Corridor.
On November 8, 2022, Train 33 and 26 saw the very first revenue runs of the new Siemens Venture trainsets between Ottawa and Montreal. Those new trains are fully accessible, and a major upgrade compared to the existing fleet used by VIA Rail.
Join us on one of the very first revenue runs on the new VIA trains. Weare really excited for the future of passenger rail in Canada and look forward to more opportunities to ride them in the future.
