212 is the last Manor in a minimum consist (3 sleepers, 210, 11 and 12). However, they will add cars for demand. On 2(10/31) which I was on, they added a 213 and 214 car, probably for an America By Rail tour group that was on Vancouver-Jasper.
Via will move you if you call and check back. Unfortunately, I didn't bother to call and check.
Also, they are putting the diner between the regular sleepers and Prestige now.
On 2(10/31) the consist was:
5 Manor (line numbers 210-14)
Sleeper Skyline (not staffed)
Deadhead Manor (appeared to have a few crew in it)
It was a weird consist, probably partly because of shoulder season repositioning. The crew said that Skyline had been staffed westbound into Vancouver.
