Excellent way to see the beautiful fall foliage and enjoy lunch. The panoramic section was wonderful. We were welcomed with a glass of champagne. Lunch followed-exceptional soup starter. The rainbow trout was fabulous. Ravioli was a good meatless option. Both desserts were delicious.

Took the afternoon train to Sherbrooke without lunch. Spent a little more on the panoramic car which was worth it. They offered an alcohol beverage at the start, but you can also ask for non-alcohol, which was delicious. At Sherbrooke there are a few outside...More
