Cons: First time travelling with via rail. Ordered tickets online. Discovered afterwards I had rear facing seat. Very few people can sit backwards on moving vehicle. Inconvenience to have to drive to brantford to exchange ticket. Found out I can’t book online if I need forward facing seat. Not convenient if travelling every week. Could not book over phone even with special number as longer than experienced call numbers every time I tried. Tips: Bring ear plugs as a lot of customers on their phones talk load.
