    In the middle of the train, right after the Skyline Dome. It is the first sleeper in the consist. You will love the journey!

    What type of accomodation do you have? I had a lower berth and it was quite quiet. I've also read that it's the most comfortable bed on the train, but that was prior to Prestige Class.

    You will find that this equipment is maintained much better than what you may be used to. Also the meals are EXCELLENT!

    go right to the Park car, because you will only have access to it (during peak season) from 14:00-24:00 starting peak season of 2017, and it is such an amazing car, with plush seats, snacks, and more, there should also be a dome, awesome views

    forgot to mention, the park car is the last car on the train, and the panorama car only goes VAC-Edmonton
