Via Offering Round-Trip Train Service from Winnipeg to Gillam

Via Rail Canada is offering passengers a round-trip from Winnipeg to Gillam this week.

The first train left on Sunday and will return from Gillam on Wednesday at 5:30 a.m. Both trains are operating on a normal schedule.

A derailment involving 13 grain cars along Via’s route to Churchill last week halted service to the northern community. Via says no alternate transportation will be made between Gillam and Churchill.

It’s not clear when the rail line will reopen for regular service.
