The Montreal–Jonquière train (formerly the Saguenay) is a passenger train operated by Via Rail between Montreal and Saguenay (borough of Jonquière) in Quebec, Canada. The train once operated as far as Chicoutimi.

The journey from end to end takes approximately 9 hours, although it is very rarely ontime and can easily take up to 13 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.[1]

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