Re: Windsor Railfaning

There is no scanner laws here in Canada....

Are there any laws in Canada regarding scanner use Or photography that a railfan should know about?

How about getting across the border and back with a scanner if they were to search?

Re: Windsor Railfaning

Lets give a breakdown, as I live in the area, and can tell you some straight facts.... CN does have regular train service into Windsor, but not via Tunnel anymore. CN lost its trackage rights via the Tunnel. The bridge over College ave is ok for watching trains, but you have to stay on the Sidewalk ...

I remember seeing Via's F40s on the point of the International, with Amtrak's cars making up the consist. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with changes in the rules since Amtrak qui...

Re: VIA Train to Ann Arbor - January 1, 2014

Umm, this would be very hard for VIA to go across, as it's not allowed to go to the USA, due to FRA Rules... VIA does lots of things that FRA needs to be done, like 1 of the main things is having working Sandboxes, which none of the VIA units have... Yes Canadian rules are better in some ways then t...
