VIA Rail to operate new service to Maritime provinces


Beginning June 1, VIA Rail Canada Inc. will begin offering overnight service on the "Ocean" Montreal-to-Moncton, New Brunswick train, which travels through the Maritime provinces.

Operating through Oct. 31, the service will be offered as upgrade to the Ocean train’s existing "Comfort Sleeper" class, which will continue to be available year-round.

The service will include a learning coordinator, a newly created position. During the trip, the coordinator will provide insight and commentary on scenery, and hold brief lectures about Maritime Canada.

The service also will feature VIA Rail’s panoramic Park Car, which includes an elevated domed viewing area.
