Trains 86 and 87 will operate modified summer schedules to accommodate ongoing work programs

 TORONTO, Aug. 10 /CNW Telbec/ – VIA Rail Canada wishes to advise travellers that due to ongoing work programs along the rail line between London and Kitchener, certain VIA trains travelling between Toronto and Sarnia, and between London and Toronto, will operate using modified temporary schedules. Effective Monday, August 16, Train 86 travelling from London to Toronto and Train 87 travelling from Toronto to Sarnia will operate with earlier departure times.

Train 86 will depart London at 04:45, arriving at Kitchener at 06:23, Guelph at 06:58, and terminating in Toronto at 08:20.

Train 87 will depart Toronto at 17:40, arriving at Guelph at 18:49, Kitchener at 19:18, London at 21:08, and terminating in Sarnia at 22:19.

VIA anticipates that travel times on these routes will be improved once the track work has been completed. At that time, VIA will re-evaluate and adjust its timetables.

GOKW note:  The translated  reason for the schedule change is poor condition of GEXR track, temporary slow orders on many portions of the line are causing the delay.
