It's the first sign of spring on the rails! Rumour has it that the "last" stainless steel set of cars on VIA's Ocean will depart Halifax on Saturday March 21. Looking at VIA's web site, you can book a triple bedroom up to then. Triple bedrooms only exist on the stainless steel cars. You can't book a triple again until late November 2009.
VIA takes one set of Renaissance equipment out at a time for upgrades and renovations each winter, and replaces it with a stainless steel set. Many of us prefer the look of the stainless equipment... I know my video camera has trouble focusing on the green Renaissance cars for some reason.
What do you think... Renaissance or stainless?
