The VIA Rail Ocean

VIA Rail’s “Ocean” train runs between Montreal and Halifax, and is the longest running named train in North America. The train features coach and sleeper accommodations as well as on-board dining.

Currently the Ocean runs three times a week, departing Montreal on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays for Halifax. The westward train departs Halifax on the same days – Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

It used to run six days per week until half the runs were cut in 2013.
