VIA expects delays to some trains Tuesday following partial reopening of CN tracks near Burlington


Toronto - VIA Rail Canada says that its trains on the Toronto-Brantford-London-Windsor and Toronto-Niagara Falls routes will operate today, but expects that they will incur significant delays following a partial reopening of the main CN rail line at Burlington and continuing track repair work. The line was closed yesterday morning as the result of a CN freight train accident.

Exceptionally, the first eastbound trains (combined trains 52 and 40) from Aldershot and Oakville to Ottawa and Montreal will only begin in Toronto today. VIA is arranging for alternate transportation for passengers between Aldershot/Oakville and Toronto, but cannot guarantee an immediate onward connection to the first eastbound trains to Ottawa/Montreal.

Trains on the Toronto-Kitchener-London-Sarnia route are not affected and are expected to operate normally.
