    Nice video. We did our trip in September 2022 - about four months after you - and thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was excellent, drinks were freely available and the scenery/photography was superb. There was some snow on distant peaks but the only time we got really close to snow was walking on the Athabasca glacier in the Columbia Icefield (which was part of the extended Rocky Mountaineer tour that we did). On the first day we departed Banff around 8am and had a 1 hour stopover at Revelstoke around lunchtime and got into Kamloops around 8pm that night. The second day was almost a repeat of the first - departed Kamloops at 8am and arrived Vancouver around 6pm. Sadly, I do not recall passing another Rocky Mountaineer train nor the steep gully but the Bald eagle nests were still prominent and we saw bears! Thumbs up!!!

    I travelled with the Rocky Mountaineer in 2018. It was a great trip through Alberta and BC. The service in the train was very comfortable and nice. Greetings from Germany.I will be back in the Rockies this year!

    I LOVED MY TRIP. Summer 2010. I met MANY people from around the world. And, staying at the Canadian Fairmont Hotels was an EXPERIENCE!

    Migod, that makes a trip across the US farmland seem quite sterile. Good show, Canada!

    I took the passenger train ( Via-Rail) from Vancouver to Calgary in the winter 78/79, 24 hour trip. Spent most of the time in the Bar/Observation car. Words really can't describe the scenery from that vantage point. I had a Coach ticket,.....$32.00

      When C.P. had it many wives and children went free and were fed minimum by employees. It was a time when farmers did not have enough land to support families. Many wives and kids headed to Vancouver for a new life. The grain prices kept dropping. Many farmers sold there land to big company who swathed the land and paid them half of the yield. Part of C.P.R. history

    I did the train from Vancouver to Halifax and back in 1985. Plus I don't know how many times I took the Island train from Victoria to Courtenay or vice versa

    When VIA RAIL did this trip for years it was a money maker too. That's why it's over priced today. Really the glaciers are melted and there is lot of rock cliffs. Enjoy the trip,

    Pretty scenery, but I learned nothing about the accommodations of the train- seating, schedule, what happens overnight, what is the Cost?

      My wife and I road this train 2 weeks after this video. The trip is a 2 day train trip from Banff to Vancouver or the reverse , Vancouver to Banff. The train only moves during daylight so you can view every mile of the spectacular scenery. You spend approximately 10 hours each day on the train. In the evening you and your luggage are moved off the train to hotels in the city of Camloops . In the morning(7am) you leave your luggage in your room ,the porter will gather all luggage. You board a bus for a ride to the train where you board the same car that you rode the day before. Breakfast is served on the train as is lunch and supper. GOLD level meals are done in a split dining format as the viewing area seats 72 people but the dining car only 36 as the kichen and restrooms take half of the lower level.
      There are 2 levels of service on the Rocky Mountainer Gold and Silver . This video is of the silver class..The essential difference between the 2 levels is that Gold sits on the upper level with a glass top (amazing views)of a two level car with the lower part is the dining car. Silver level is served the same food but at your seat and views only to the sides. In the video you can see people standing outside in a porch area, this is only available on the Gold level. I would very highly recommend the GOLD level. Your 3 course meals are served at 4 person tables.
