Just a heads up VIA Rail is adding six extra Ocean's for the Holidays. And when I went to see what equipment they are using I came up with an option for sections. So that's leading me to believe the extra six Ocean trains will be all Budd cars.
It also came up with options for a three person drawing room so looks like they are expecting a Park car as well.
