I'm curious about what the consist for the Skeena is during the summer season, particularly on days when Touring class is not offered.
I've been scrolling through past threads and found this one from 2014, but wasn't sure if the info is still accurate three years later.
Both my trip from Jasper to Rupert and back are on days this July when Touring class isn't offered, so I'm hoping I might have access to the Park Car. If that's not the case it won't be the end of the world, but it would certainly be a bonus.
