Is travelling by train from Toronto to Calgary a good choice?

Go for it......

No, it's not a great idea, but mainly because VIA Rail doesn't have train service to Calgary. They might sell you a ticket to get there, but the train goes to Edmonton and you're transferred onto a bus to get to Calgary.

Of course you have looked at the route and already know it takes two trains and you change in Vancouver. Possible and about six days travel time.
Depends if you want to make use of the trains large windows and the view at SEE level.

No passenger train service to Calgary, so no, not a good choice.

It is if you have the time to take the train. It's a nice ride. But it's also significantly slower than flying if you don't have much time.

Not really. Flying is much faster, and cheaper as well. If you want to see the Prairies, the train is fine, but, that would be the only reason I would do it, except that I wouldn't!

If you're looking to get there quickly, then no. If you want to have the experience of riding a train and seeing the scenery, then it's a great idea.

Well, it will likely cost more than flying, depending, as well, on if you book a sleeper on the train.
It will, of course, also take longer to make the trip. But, it will also be more comfortable and scenic.

A good choice compared to what? Whether it's a good choice or not depends on several things and you have given us no details that would help us know.

Only if you want to go to Calgary. Otherwise, no.
