Those trains (which I love like a backseat ride on JackRabbit) are most definitely better than *either* Morgan trains OR Arrow trains.
/Imagines those trains on Maggie and drools...snaps back to reality.
Even if it turns out to be B&M, you could get something along the lines of SFoG's monster...
As the first rational step as we move towards full WHTI implementation, DHS intends to end the routine practice of accepting oral declarations alone at land and sea ports of entry. On Jan. 31, 2008, U.S. and Canadian citizens will need to present either a WHTI-compliant document or a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, plus proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate. DHS also proposes to begin alternative procedures for U.S. and Canadian children at that time.
At a later date to be determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security in consultation with the Secretary of State, the departments will implement the full requirements of the land and sea phase of WHTI. The implementation date will be determined based on a number of factors, including the progress of actions undertaken by the Department of Homeland Security to implement the WHTI requirements and the availability of WHTI compliant documents on both sides of the border. DHS and DOS expect the date of full WHTI implementation to be in the summer of 2008. The precise implementation date will be formally announced with at least 60 days notice.

I would love to see Wonderland get something like Nitro. Nitro is awsome.

1. Exchange rate is really bad, it's around $1.05 on the US dollar.
2. People aren't sure what the deal is with the border because it's changed so many times. Crossing the border appears to be a hassle so they won't bother.
After hearing what he said and reading this thread, it's pretty clear that everyone is really confused as to what you need and when you'll need it if you intend to cross the border.
I'm not really sure why people don't have passports?
For your typical American the idea of going to Canada is about as exotic as going to Mars. It may be a bit different for coaster enthusiasts near the border but flitting off to another country isn't part of the culture like it would be for people in other parts of the world.
Exotic as going to Mars? I'm not sure I know anyone over the age of 10 who hasn't been to Canada.
Of course if you live in MI, NY, VT, PA, or similar states, that number would be higher.
The point still stands, traveling out of country for people in the US is very different from people traveling out of country in Europe or wherever.
