Many delays with first train; Guelph station was horrible to navigate as there are no humans employed there. Toronto was much easier.

Le voyage en train était bien sympa. Mais je n'ai pas pu amener mes valises qui dépassaient 23 kilos. Quand mes enfants ont voulu payer le poids excédent, la dame qui les servait a refusé, soit disant qu'il n'y avait plus de temps. Et qu'ils devaient ajuster les poids.

The ride itself was great - quiet, clean, food and drink service, wi-fi, etc. Unfortunately, the train in front of us had some problems, so we were delayed: we didn't even board until after the scheduled departure time and eventually arrived an hour late. Communication was fine once the problem in front of us was resolved, but until then we were left standing in line or in our seats wondering what was taking so long

Via Rail was over an hour late coming into Stratford. Then, when the train arrived in Kitchener, they said they had to pause for another hour, but would let everyone off to take the GO if they wanted. I had to get to work, so I had to get off the train, then pay for a bus and a GO train just to get home.
