Hitchhiking freights in Canada

Recommended Posts

I'm living in Canada but not a Canadian citizen and have been thinking of hitching on freights to cut down on expenses. If you get caught hitchhiking freights, what's the punishment? Possible deportation?

 

Are there any regular services from Calgary to Vancouver and vice versa?

 

Thanks in advance

if you stand next to the tracks with your thumb in the air, the train will stop and pick you up. they may even let you drive the train if your cool enough

Train hopping resources...

 

http://www.thespoon.com/trainhop/

 

Once I was stranded in Portland and had to get to Seattle. Went down to the train yard after being up all night. Somehow I just knew if I tried to hop one of those trains I was going to die. Better to be awake me thinks.

 

I opted for the standard hitch hike.

you need to have a search at google so that you can do some preparation on how to do it

 

 

this is my idea

 

 

your idea sucks.

google cant teach you about riding trains.

12oz cant teach you about riding trains.

riding trains is how to learn about riding trains.

 

if youve never done it and dont know anything about trains and how they work then get ready for A LOT of disappointment kids.

 

im just sayin is all...

i rode from NYC to burbank cali once. all i took with me was a revolver and a debit card. it only took me 8 years.

 

thats not true, but like someone already said this is more of an experience thing. you cant read up on this one..
