It’s one of the world’s greatest train journeys.

A trans-continental train called the Canadian links

Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Jasper & Vancouver

twice a week all year round,

operated by VIA Rail Canada,

Canada’s national train operator.

The whole journey takes 4 nights and the train consists of the original stainless-steel coaches built for the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Canadian in 1954-55.

You can travel very affordably in Economy class in a reclining seat, or in Sleeper Plus class with a private sleeping-car room and restaurant car meals included.

And there are deluxe Prestige class sleepers too, introduced in 2014.  Crossing Canada by train is an amazing experience, as this page will show…
