Rocky Mountaineer meals?

We will be travelling from Banff to Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer in September. I notice that the train does not arrive in Kamloops on the first day untll 7:20 in the evening, and that it does not serve a dinner meal onboard. Given that we would have to get off the train and travel to the hotel and get rooms prior to being able to go to a restaurant, that is pretty late in the day. I usually have to eat much earlier than that. Do they serve enough snacks on the train in the late afternoon or early evening to keep one from going hungry?

My recollection is that there are lots of snacks -- I think you will be OK.

Don't worry they feed you faithfully every two hrs. During the afternoon they often serve the normal cookies, fruit, and also cheese and crackers. I assure you you won't arrive hungry. Most hotels are close to some restaraunt and the train offers a dinner show but I find most people are pretty tired, but the show and food are pretty good but perhaps a little overpriced at $85 or so.
