I'm headed to Quebec City from Chicago in October 2023 (that's NEXT year, folks!) to catch a cruise through the St. Lawrence Seaway down to Fort Lauderdale via Boston. Amtrak's website does show the connection from the Lake Shore Limited to the Maple Leaf with that six-hour layover at Depew, but that's OK by me . . . so long as I don't have to fly. Question: Does Depew have a wheelchair lift? I travel with a mobility scooter and a service dog (and a spouse who helps navigate).
The Lake Shore sounds like a fun trip. I did that when it connected to the Adirondack at Schenectady. I’ve done the transfer to VIA at Windsor with a night in Detroit. I rather like that route, and VIA Business Class is excellent.
