TORONTO, Feb. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - (05:30 am) - VIA Rail Canada says that
its trains today on the Toronto-Brantford-London-Windsor route will either be
rerouted or replaced by bus service until further notice as a result of a CN
freight train accident that blocked the rail line near Burlington earlier this
morning. Trains on the Toronto-Niagara Falls route are also replaced by bus
service today. Trains on the Toronto-Kitchener-London-Sarnia route are not
affected and will operate normally.
