Train Open House on December 17
The mayors of LaSalle, Delson, Saint-Constant and Sainte-Catherine have
decided to take concerted action to revive a pilot project for a suburban
train linking Delson to Montreal. This service had been scheduled to start
in September 2001 and was then deferred for a year or more.
The mayors of the four municipalities rallied around the project and hoped
that their respective populations would do the same, at a TRAIN OPEN HOUSE,
ON DECEMBER 17.
The four mayors invite their populations to board the train on Sunday,
December 17. This jaunt to Montreal is offered at no charge to all potential
users of this suburban train. Canadian Pacific has agreed to lend its rails
and operators and the MTA will provide the rolling stock.
Two train departures are planned for that day, one at 9:15 a.m. and another
at 1.15 p.m. in the afternoon. All those who are interested in taking a
train ride, must obtain tickets which will be available, as of November 27.
In LaSalle, you may obtain your passes at the Octogone Library located at
1080 Dollard Avenue, at the following times: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday, from noon to 9. 00 pm. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 10.00
a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
The train will make three stops to pick up passengers, the last at Highlands
Park, near the former LaSalle station. The train will then go on to Windsor
Station in Montreal. The morning train will stop in LaSalle at about 10.20
a.m. and will bring you as far as Windsor Station . After a snack and
presentation, on site, the train will bring passengers back to LaSalle at
about 11.55 a.m. The afternoon train, which leaves Delson at 1.15 p.m. will
stop in LaSalle at 2.20 p.m. The passengers will return to Highlands Park at
about 3.55 p.m.
