The Montreal–Senneterre train (formerly called the Abitibi) is a passenger train operated by Via Rail between Montreal and Senneterre in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Quebec, Canada.[1]

The journey from end to end takes approximately 11½ hours. Many small hunting and fishing clubs operate along the route and appear as optional stops on the timetable. It is also possible to make a reservation to detrain at an unmarked spot.[2]

The train travels three times a week. Between Montreal and Hervey-Jonction, it travels together with the Montreal–Jonquière train, another regional route.
