“VIA, the Way To Go”

Written on: 10/09/2013

From the champagne and appies welcome, to the chocolate on my pillow at night and the opportunity to really see this country from ground level- OK, up a few feet, we had a great journey from Vancouver to Toronto with a short break in Jasper. One night's entertainment was watching a lightning storm on the prairies from the dome car at the rear of the train. It was spectacular from lightning streaking to the ground to layers of clouds illuminated by shafts of electricity.

The meals provided an opportunity to talk to many different people at the tables for 4 at each meal, and the food was wonderful. The staff were always helpful and courteous when trying to accommodate individual needs.

I have always heard about the grain elevators, such a symbol of an agricultural way of life but I had to stop counting after about 15. It was sad to see so many of them neglected or derelict by the side of the tracks.
We had plenty of time to study modern freight cars in some detail though.
Our holiday was a journey to remember.
