      I have done this route countless times, although never on this expensive train, the scenery shown in this video is typical, and it is like that for the whole 1000 km. Canadians are always very well behaved and very civilized, you will never see bad or obscence behavior like I saw from river rafters shown in a YT travel video on the new route this company does in Colorado USA.

    I took the Rocky Mountaineer on the reverse ride just two weeks ago and one of the things that was of great use to me is something that you did not mention at all - that is there is a lift in each car for those who have trouble navigating the narrow spiral staircase. The crew is always eager to help in this regard. So going to the dining car or to the washroom is no trouble at all. Th lift can even accommodate wheelchairs. Good job Rocky Mountaineer!

    The Rocky Mountaineer really did look like an incredible experience. The weather and the sights were just perfect, and the train and crew seemed like grade A service. Beautiful look to the train and even without rooms aboard the social experience is nice for people open it. Not like your having a social dinner on a New York subway train. Marvelous video, Canada is beautiful.

      For a city of 1 Million, Calgary is exceptionally clean, safe, and modern, except for the homeless problem downtown, many who are from eastern Canada. In nearly all suburbs you can be perfectly safe walking down the street at midnight, and in some places during the day you can see the sharp wall of the Rockies on the western horizon.

      @E S Victoria to Courtenay on VIA's Malahat is NOT on my list ! We went to Vancouver Island in 2011, and it closed 4 weeks prior to our arrival. Then in 2013 we went to Provence Quebec, and they closed the line from Matapedia to Gaspe also 4 weeks prior to our arrival. We were more lucky, we did Banff to Calgary on the Rocky Mountaineer prior to the service being cut back to Banff. We also managed to Toronto to Cochrane on the Ontario Northland, prior to it becoming a 15 hour (?) bus ! We also did the Orford Express, Credit Valley Explorer, Hull Chelsea Wakefield, and Chute Montmorency to La Malbaie prior to their closures. I wish everyone good luck in reopening these lines. Sadly, I heard the station area at Victoria has been redeveloped. For a fantastic country made by the railway, it is sad the railways close so frequently.

    Hi, we went on this train in June /22 and enjoyed it immensely. The magnificent scenery, comfort , exquisite food and friendly, accommodating staff and meeting of new friends have truly made this a memorable trip. A bit on the expensive side but something you should experience and add to your bucket list. My wife and I had taken a 13 day Alaska cruise and land tour before picking up the train in Vancouver. This train excursion didn’t end up in second place as the scenery and service blended seamlessly into the best vacation we have ever taken. This turned out to be the trip we had hoped for as our reservation had been cancelled upon the pandemic setting in, but we’ll worth the 2 year wait

    Just returned from Australia, and the journey from Sydney to Perth on the Indian Pacific. Fabulous. The Gold Service cabin was comfortable and spacious. The Outback Explorers lounge was where we spent most of our time... a real treat to watch Australia pass by the windows. The young lady making the specialty coffee really knew her barista craft... The Adelaide Restaurant fare was pretty much over the top... pretty much the same quality as a top restaurant anywhere in the world... and the service... well it was just fabulous. We were one of two American couples on board, the rest were Aussies (Aussies are fun). Highly recommend.

    Hi Will, brought back memories. We did Vancouver - Banff 8 years ago in August 2014! Boy how time flies, seems like yesterday. You didn't mention that the train splits at Kamloops - although your trip did add the extra carriages from the Jasper portion whereas our "lost" the Jasper connection at Kamloops. I'd love to do it again, but age and costs will probably not allow it.

    The outdoor platform is only available for GoldLeaf passengers. It is ideal for photographers as your images are without window glare and distortion.
    I took this trip about 10 years ago. When we pulled into Kamloops, we were greeted by a horse and rider wearing western clothes and cowboy hat.
    Many of my relatives worked in the railroad (primarily Canadian National and VIA). So it was great to see the spiral tunnels (an amazing engineering feet) and the location of the "Last Spike".

    That was a great insight into the Rocky Mountaineer - thank you for creating and sharing. I am so glad that they have outdoor observation decks for the visitors - that fresh mountain air is unbeatable :)
    I am glad to see this vicariously through you - personally I doubt I would ever do it due to the cost and living here already. Very similar scenery is accessible to me in other ways.
    Your other rail journeys are so inspiring - I would consider an epic higher end rail trip in another part of the world that is less known to me but which also has great scenery. I saw the Peruvian one, and will watch for others. It thought it was unfortunate that the one to Istanbul does not offer more choices in terms of amenities.

    I've made this trip many times, but long ago when it was part of the CPR's regular passenger service. How times have changed! You had to take a return trip to see everything because it was non-stop and you slept on the train during the night portion of the trip. One time the train was stuck in the mountains all day while they cleared an avalanche from the tracks. I loved every minute of it. It was also a very cheap way to travel. The price of the new train was really shocking to me.

You will find as time goes on, your family becomes a much tighter for a shared loss. I am sure your children admire you greatly.

      @Vic Sams i wish i could not leave it until that stage in life, but being a single father of 4 children, and saving up for their college and or university funds at the moment is my number one priority along with paying everyday expenses. my wages get me by, so it's everyday life for me and the kids. 3 sons and one daughter. she's the youngest. 7 years of age. sons are between 13-15 years of age now and all they want is tech gadgets..oh well..such is life..enjoy your trips while you can and when i get the opportunity when it happens, i will be following your footsteps and do such wonderful things if time and money shall be. thank you sir for your kind words as always and cheers. btw, the wife died from a brain tumor and she didn't have much in savings nor her family, but they do help out as much as they can. take care my new friend.

      @Hedge Hog Sorry if this sounds melancholy; but I recommend you don't leave it till retirement beckons. Lots of people do. Sadly, not everyone gets there, or maintains the health and wealth to do it. I live by the motto, live every day as if it was my last. No point getting old and having regrets. The work will still be there long after we have gone. Enjoy life while you are able. All the best.

    I really enjoy your videos, and I was so excited to see you traveling in my home province! The Rocky Mountaineer has been on my bucket list for a long time and your review encouraged me to make that trip a priority. I am loving the train content you've been doing lately btw! Lots of cool looking experiences to be had.

      There are 5 different Rocky Mountaineer routes ! I have done 4 of them, plus every railway line in Canada (except Churchill), including the Yukon and (Newfoundland and) Labrador. Plus all 5 railways in Alaska. Every railway in Britain, Ireland, Portugal, Norway (except Narvik), most of Europe and some of America. Any questions, just ask. Kind regards from London, England.

    Another two day scenic rail journey I think you would enjoy would be from Zermatt to Milan the long way via the Glacier Express, the Bernina Express and the Tirano to Milan line with an overnight in the charming Swiss resort town of St. Moritz. I did it this May, and while the scenery is spectacular any time of year, it is definitely better to do it during the longer months where you are in daylight for the entire journey. Definitely do first class on the Bernina, but for the Glacier Express they have what is called Excellence Class, which is above First. I didn’t take that because it’s the one class that isn’t covered by the EurailPass I had been using the entire trip.

    This is awesome! You should check out the Rocky Mountaineer's US train. It runs between Denver, Colorado and Arches National Park (near Moab, Utah). There's an overnight stop in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

    I've been fortunate enough to have taken this trip 3 times. Although it was opposite direction from Vancouver to Calgary. It helps to know someone who worked there. They were given one free gold leaf package for 2 every year. I got 3 free trips. It was some years ago on the older trains, which quite frankly were probably more comfortable than these newer ones look. I took their Christmas train one year which was pretty cool.

    Half expected you to be sharing a room with Matthew 😂 absolutely beautiful scenery !!! And the food looks amazing 😋 but the lack of privacy is a turn off, at least for me. Considering the cost and the fact you don't actually sleep on the train, it's really a glorified coach class trip so it's a pass from me. But different strokes for different folks 😊
