Yahoo! VIA Rail has seen the light and are going to now stop some of their trains at the soon-to-be retrofitted James St North location. This is great news. However, what confuses me is why VIA Rail is so resistant to a downtown Hamilton train stop? This should be a high priority for VIA Rail in its mandatae to service inter-city transport. People work in the Hamilton downtown core and more and more people are choosing to live in the Hamilton city centre. It's a destination as well as a populous place. Having a train station in Stoney Creek doesn't really encourage people to take the train to Hamilton because they would be dumped out in the suburbs only needing to find another mode of transport to get to the city center. Come on VIA Rail. Get on board. I would suggest stopping all the trains in Hamilton, and not just "some." However, am pleased they are going to stop some of them!
