VIA Rail selects Siemens for C$989M train contract.

VIA Rail Canada announced that Siemens Canada was awarded a C$989M contract to build the 32 trainsets that will replace VIA Rail's fleet that operates in the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor. VIA Rail will retire a portion of its current fleet starting 2019, with Francoise Bertrand, Chairperson of the VIA Board of Directors, stating: "As we are initiating the gradual withdrawal of the current fleet, the timely delivery of the new fleet will allow VIA Rail to maintain the current levels of service in the Quebec-City Windsor Corridor, while significantly improving the quality of its passenger experience. We thank the Government of Canada for their trust in VIA Rail and for this historic investment in its sustainable future." [Reference Link]:[]
