    Ha this sounds like a project with too much design input from a committee of people.

    Not only should Science Centre station still be underground with the "elevated" alignment, but they should have just kept the line underground all the way until Science Centre.

    Totally agree. You can really tell who the engineering types are on here; they see this less as a forum for debate and discussion and digression and more as a place where they think its their podium to express their "facts". The only place for that is the news section of the site, this is a forum.

    Personally I would choose buying up the CN spur in the east, upgrading it and making a nice attractive 2 or 3 platform station on the waterfront of Old Montreal. Then continuing along that spur to the St.Jerome Line. From then St. Jerome Line east to Quebec City All the rail would have to be...

    At this point it would probably be best to just make a new station downtown with a connection to the Metro or REM. Especially since it would also solve the issue of continuing trains through to Quebec.

    I think before that you will see instead a symbol showing that a station is not accessible. It will be a long time until some stations are accessible, like Rosedale.

    You basically articulated what I meant. I meant less subsidies per passenger, which is the same thing as you put it.

    That does bring up an interesting question actually; would HFR be cheaper operationally than paying CN to use their corridor. On one hand you aren't paying CN or CP to use their stuff, and we know that lots of times they have been caught overcharging VIA, but on the other hand maintaining your...
