Via Rail Strike - Amtrak in the Dark

As I rather expected, the agents at Amtrak have no idea whether the strike of Via Rail Canada's locomotive engineers, if it happens, will affect service on the Adirondack. The same union represents the engineers to both companies, but the Amtrak agent said it's an Amtrak crew that operates the train clear through to Montreal. Whether the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers would oblige their Amtrak-contract members to honor the strike on Canadian lines is still apparently up in the air.
