If it is at all viable, I want to take the train to New York with a friend this summer. We have already discussed it.

I'm not that familiar with VIA's operations outside the Montreal-Toronto corridor. Which tracks are you referring to?
Through St-Luc railyard for the Senneterre/Jonquière trains.

News on the project

The project is therefore fully funded and approved.

Now, CDPQ Infra can award the contracts and start the construction. Shovels will be in the ground by the end of the year.

You may have noticed, the mass transit branch of Alstom was recently purchased by Siemens, people.
And their power supply subsidy purchased by General Electric.
Alstom is no longer anything under control of French assets in particular. It is completely globalized now.
I don't see anything really wrong about it, we'll always get a good chunk of that industry here in France anyway, thanks to our experience and quality engineering on that topic.
I'm only wondering about the fate of Bombardier. I think they need to merge with Alstom-Siemens too, so we can face the fearsome Chinese competition more easily, instead of fighting against our own interests.

Moreover, Bombardier should be the name of the resulting giant corporation, cause it's cooler and even more fearsome/scary than anything Chinese, and it's quite historic, bearing our own identity.

In a nutshell, Bombardier sounds sexier.
