Not I, never been to the Agawa Canyon, but I did take "The Canadian" train from Toronto to Vancouver once. Economy class sleeping-in-the-seat was not-so-great, except for riding up in observation deck car all night through the moonlit Rockies.

Looks great, /me adds both to my to-do-someday list...

On the subject of trains, I recently picked up a merkin friend of my sister from the railway station, 60-something years old, and it was his first ever train trip.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I also took "The Indian Pacific" train from Sydney to Menindee through the outback ... that was great. [Applause]

Because of all the fear that anyone crossing the border must be up to no good. I have not ridden the Algoma Central in the last eleven years. I have done the canyon many times and once went all the way to Hearst and back, that was a train ride.
