About this journey

Your journey starts here, travel from Montréal to Halifax (or vice versa), pulling out at dusk from Montréal and watching the sparkling city lights fade into the distance as your adventure begins.

Relax in the Service Car lounge, where you can chat with other travellers and share stories of your journeys. Of course, there’s a large plasma screen for your entertainment needs and a food counter for those all-important snacks.

Head up to the Park Car and take in a 36-0 view of your surroundings on the observation deck. This is the best way to take in the scenery, with panoramic windows giving you a truly immersive experience.

When you’re ready for a bite to eat, join us in the Dining Car, where your wish is our command. We serve freshly cooked locally sourced Canadian food, like a travelling restaurant on wheels!
