Agassiz railway station in Agassiz,[1] British Columbia, Canada, is served by Via Rail's The Canadian three times per week as a flag stop (48 hours advance notice required).[2] The station is only served by east-bound trains. West-bound trains call at the Chilliwack railway station on the south side of the Fraser River on the CN Railway tracks. The reason for the splitting of service is that between Abottsford and Kamloops, CN and CP on which Via runs use each other's tracks for directional running through the Fraser Canyon on long stretches of single track.
