Train Service, Halifax
Once-a-day train operated by Canada's VIA national train system. The train offers several types of accomodations if traveling overnight depending of the budget. Never mind that the scenery can be great as well.
VIA's trans-Canada rail service starts (and finishes) in Halifax.
There is just the one train out of HFX: 12:45pm daily, except Tuesdays. At least that's how it was in September, 2005. See the website for the current situation.
The Halifax station is at the end of the line and located next to the Westin Hotel, close to the Pier 21 area.
