That said, our train was five hours late getting to Winnipeg, so we arrived at 1 PM on Saturday instead of at 8 AM. That means only one hour here instead of four -- but just enough time to scoot into the VIA Rail Canada station and check my emails and let people know I'm still on board!
Several people are curious about the route of the Canadian. Here's a link with a good map. The trip from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Vancouver, British Columbia is 4,466 KM or around 2,769 miles. We'll continue on to Saskatoon, Saskatechewan and are scheduled to arrive there around 10 PM tonight.
