The service remains the same and there is no confirmed date that another tain will be added per day.

so:

One Trip North in AM
One Trip South in PM

According to Province Newspaper this morning. Extra track needed has been laid and all that is to be done is extra staffing for Border. Apparently the hold up is the Canadian end. They have not/will not commit. This of course is the Federal Government holding up a Provincial initiative and who knows what will happen or when.

Meanwhile California is working on a "Fast Train" and there is talk all along the coast.

IF it ran between Seattle and Vancouver it would take about 90 mins. (In my dreams Bob in my dreams)
