Let's link 'em all up!

I usually stick to the Amtrak forum, but I thought this needed to be seen here (note that the original page links to a much-larger version, and the details are worth perusing):

This is cute. Do I have to slide my Carte Charles again at Honoré- Beauregard, or is it one fare all the way to Spadina?

I believe that's a cross-platform transfer, so you should be good.

I think you have to pay another fare when you pass through the language barrier.

Green line extension to Canada. Terrifying.

Would it be better standing or sitting, considering how hard the seats are on those trains?

I think it's premature to worry about it -- they haven't gotten to Somerville yet.

Personally, my favorites were the connection between Cleveland Circle and Cleveland, and the "Ashmont-Manhattan High Speed Line".

Couldn't you just imagine going from New Lots Avenue to Alewife via Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta, Santo Domingo, San Juan, Manhattan (again), and then finally Boston? A journey like that would take weeks!
