We here in the various western Canada forums get a lot of questions about train travel in the Rockies, and about the VIA Rail train "The Canadian" or the "Rocky Mountaineer", provided by Rocky Mountain Rail Tours. I have often posted that anyone who wants to ride the CP line (through Roger's Pass, Kicking Horse Pass, Lake Louise and Banff) had only one choice - the Rocky Mountaineer. But.... I was wrong!
Today I was reading an article in the Canadian Geographic magazine - they put out a "Travel" issue every spring, and this year's theme is national parks. There is a feature about Yoho National Park, with mention of the Spiral Tunnels, the Burgess Shale etc. AND a train called the Royal Canadian Pacific. I had never heard of this before, so checked out the website: http://www.royalcanadianpacific.com/
Wow! Wouldn't that be a trip to do! At $8,000 per person, it may not be of interest to most reading these forums or travelling to the area, but in the interest of providing complete information, it deserves a mention. (Now I"m off to buy a lotto ticket.....)
