Oddly enough, just after I finished taking this picture the train roared by without stopping.
The Via Rail normally doesn't stop in Trenton, it usually just zips right through. Most Trentonians are resigned to having to go to Belleville to catch the train. We do have a little station (as you can see by the picture), but Trenton has long stopped being a regular stop on the route.
A few years ago Via Rail had actually decided to do away with Trenton Junction altogether, as not enough people were making use of the facility, but some local citizens banded together and petitioned Via Rail to keep it there. Via Rail monitored the numbers and decided to keep Trenton Junction open, however just in a limited capacity.
There are three destinations from Trenton Junction, Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal. Anybody going elsewhere will have to make a connection from one of those three places.
The train to Toronto departs at 9.30 p.m. every weekday, the train to Ottawa at 7.07 p.m. weekdays, and the train to Montreal at 8.14 p.m. weekdays. There is weekend service to those destinations, all at different times.
Unless a ticket has been purchased in advance though, the train won't stop, so nobody should head on down to Trenton Junction hoping to be able to hop onboard and buy a ticket from the conductor. It doesn't work that way anymore.
It is much the same situation with being dropped off at Trenton Junction, your ticket would have to be purchased specifically for Trenton, you can't just get off the train early (unless of course someone else has a ticket to Petticoat Trenton Junction).
I suspect that my kids are going to be making some use of this station in the near future as they will be going to college, and the train is a way more comfortable way to travel than by bus. We had all best get familiar with the schedules, as they will both be going in different directions, one east and one west. This little train station may well become a very familiar place for me over the next little while.
