CANADIAN-PASSENGER-RAIL GROUP INFORMATION:
Scope and Mandate:
Canadian-Passenger-Rail (a.k.a. CanPassRail) is a place to discuss all aspects of past, present, and
future passenger trains and rail travel in Canada. This includes all national, regional, commuter, and
tourist rail carriers such as VIA Rail, the current and former passenger operations of CN and CP, Ontario
Northland, BC Rail, GO Transit, West Coast Express, and Rocky Mountaineer Railtours. Others not
mentioned here are of course welcome, so long as they are located in Canada. The general rule is, "if it runs
on rails in Canada while carrying passengers, then it's 'on-topic.'"
Although Montreal Commuter Lines do fall within the scope of Canadian-Passenger-Rail, a greater
knowledge-base on this topic exists on the Montrain List. To find out about them, and other Canadian
Rail-related lists, go to Tim Green's Mailing List summary at http://www.trainscan.com/fan/list.html.
Discussions regarding freight movements unrelated to passenger rail should be posted elsewhere. We
suggest the Canadian-Rails, C-P-R, or C-N-R lists for these topics. You can also find information on
other Canadian Rail-related lists at Tim Green's excellent TrainsCan site mentioned above.
All posts should be signed with a real name and preferrably your location as well.
Posts from new members will be moderated as well as those from individuals whom the moderators feel should
Profanity, flaming, and personal attacks will not be tolerated. Remember to edit replies including only
necessary portions of posts. Also, if you subscribe in Digest mode, please remember to edit the Subject
header when replying to a post. Please avoid cross posting to other lists unless necessary.
Commercial advertisements are neither appropriate nor welcome, and will be dealt with by the moderators
at their discretion. A common remedy is banishment from the group (especially if you just subscribed
twenty minutes ago).
