VIA Rail Train
The VIA Rail trains connect Canada from Vancouver to Halifax, with four different train routes. Major city stops include Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Jasper, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec and Halifax. The trains run year round. Depending on the route, they offer daylight or overnight sleeper train experiences.
The Ocean Train
The 1350 km (839 mile) journey between Montreal and Halifax takes approximately 21 hours and operates three days per week in both directions. Inaugurated in 1904, the Ocean is the oldest continuously operated named passenger train in North America. The famous Park Car is a vintage gem at the rear of the train. Built in 1954 for the Canadian, its vista-dome and luxury lounge set the scene for some classy wilderness-gazing.
There are two train routes in Canada which allow you to sleep on the train.
