Does the Ocean still have the Park car year round? And, are there currently any Budd sets operating on the route?

 

Thanks!

Everything looks good, but why is the slice of pie so skinny? I want an big fat slice of pie. :)

Can't say for certain, but I'm guessing that the pies are pre-sliced, with paper separation, and are kept frozen.

 

I buy Cheesecake Factory frozen cheesecake's at Costco, that come that way...

Yes but those slices of cheesecake are nice and fat. Not skinny.

Thanks for the pictures, we just booked a trip on The Ocean, in a room, for late August, and looking forward to the Park Car, and the diner.

 

I like the fact that the diner has tables for 2,no offense, but as someone who has do a lot of networking for work, I don't like having to deal with strangers while on vacation.

The Ocean will be busy in August and often sells-out in sleepers......so a pretty good chance you will be seated with someone.

We really enjoyed our trip on The Ocean this week. The Dining Car service was excellent, and we got our same table for 2 for each meal (dinner, breakfast, lunch). We had plenty of socializing in the 2 dome cars, this was one long train !post-13497-15043524182873.jpgpost-13497-15043524549704.jpgpost-13497-15043525049807.jpgpost-13497-15043525404966.jpg

Did the Ocean this summer, Montreal to Halifax in a bedroom. Neat trip, as stated the diner food was great and enjoyed the Dome and Park car. They had entertainment in the Park car. A lot of fun in an intimate environment.
