    If you are taking a via train for a good few hours, get food before boarding the train.

    I thought the VIA Panorama Lounge was supposed to be nice. Instead I am rammed in here with the blue hair group. Where is the open bar?

    If you are looking for montreal souvenir fridge magnets, the depanneur at the top end of the hall (straight the other end of staples) may sell the cheapest (1. 99 CAD/each) in all montreal. :)

    If your train leaves at 5:25, be here at 5:00.The early bird, gets to the worm easier: No crowds to barge through.

    Stop at the Dépanneur for some surprisingly tasty sushi rolls to eat on the train. Sure beats a lukewarm VIA Rail egg salad sandwich.

    Jenny Burgesse · August 29, 2010

    Of you're traveling with Via RAIL you must check your bags until 30 min before train departure.

    There's a McDo and a Timmy's, a Second Cup and a Premiere Moisson and even a Staples. Also, v well connected with many shops near by and located in the downtown of the city which is super convenient

    If you're connecting VIA Rail trains here, you'll have to go up to the main level and get in line for next train. So, chances are you'll have time to grab some food since VIA Rail's selection is crap.

    I got a super cheap web deal for my trip to Toronto. If you have a smartphone, you can flash your electronic boarding pass instead of a paper ticket. :)

    Besides the depanneur, we couldn't find a place to drink (alcohol) in the station on a Sunday. If you wanna booze before you ride, be sure to stop somewhere en route to the station.
