My trip on the Canadian (part one)


The journey begins at Toronto Union Station.

The inside of the dining car # 8410. It is an ex-CP full-length Budd diner.

The Canadian is one of the very few trains since the 1960s to have sections. The section is made up of two seats that fold down to make a bed, and another bed that pulls down from the ceiling.

The sections at night. Curtains are pulled over the beds.
