UPDATE: Ottawa-Toronto Via trains to resume Saturday

Trains between Ottawa and Toronto are expected to remain suspended until tomorrow morning, as crews continue cleaning up yesterday's freight train derailment in Brockville.

Until then, VIA Rail passengers are being bused between the two cities.

Via Rail spokesperson Mylene Belanger says that means if you are taking the train to Toronto, you should expect delays.

"I'm being told that delays of 30 to 60 minutes should be expected today but we are working very hard, making all efforts to minimize the impact on our customers," Belanger said.

Via is offering compensation to their passengers for the disruption.

Regular service is expected to resume tomorrow.
