comment Can you buy a longer ViaRail train ticket, but hop off with your stuff early?
I guess the main concern is checked baggage - how would you gain access to that...

Yeah this was my theory. Even if they DO check tickets - if you're say, motion sick from the train or something, they can't exactly FORCE you to get back on the train :)

comment Is collecting miles for Cathay Pacific worth it for semi-frequent long-haul flights?
As it stands, your question is quite subjective. "Is it worth it" totally depends on your situation. Can you update the question (not the comments) to indicate what flights you are considering in future, what class you're flying in, and so on? Does it cost to get one?

It might help if you indicated what the 'main track' is, so people don't just answer with one that might be closed :/

comment Canadian Greyhound - is there a charge for bringing an extra snowboard?
The 'usually' is the problem, I can just see it being this time that they get upset ;)

That answer covers bringing a skateboard ON the bus, rather than being charged for checking a snowbard :/
