Ontario Train Travel--Returning Adventure

My recent trip south of the border included two 18 hour train trips through the wild west starting in Denver, through Wyoming, and Utah to Salt Lake City, with a different return route through Colorado canyons and jountains . It was adventureous with exceptional views and stories. In the Globe and Mail today, Off the Rails talks about the Agawa Canyon and the Canyon View Camp Car Accommodation and the coming fall colours. With the Niagara and North Bay bike train we may be seeing a rebirth of affordable rail travel in Ontario.
