When VIA rationalized the transcontinental train services taken over from CN and CP in 1979, a barebones "remote service" train was established over CN's main line between Capreol and Winnipeg. This little two or three car train shuttled back and forth three times per week until the "Canadian" was permanently rerouted over CN lines in January 1990. (It's interesting how this was an "essential service" until this year when the now twice-weekly "Canadian" was suspended due to COVID...as this is written, Nos. 1 and 2 operate once per week west of Winnipeg but there is no service across isolated northern Ontario!)
