This rail line must achieve minimum travel time reductions from today’s speeds (no maximum speed)
Technically a max was offered up since they suggest that it will be Class 7 tracks. So up to 125 mph.
The trains will most likely still be VIA branded
I have doubts. It's very likely the new operator may choose to rebrand in some way. Or we get some kind of co-branding. "Corridor Services by VIA Rail Canada"
