Posting this because I am curious about it. I got a few photos of this car on train #93 (Toronto to Niagara Falls) in the summer of 2006.
I know it is the "glenfraser" lounge car #1750. Understand it had a casino in it!! Came to VIA from BC Rail in 2002 and that they 'winterized' it in 2005.
Nice rolling billboard for VIA.  But I am wondering; when and for how long was this wrap applied? I seem to recall it only that one summer.
THANKS!!

  1. It was still in the wrap on August 10, 2006, but back to normal by August 17. VIA Rail website says it still includes a casino with a professional croupier on hand.

  2. Is this the party train you and snake were last seen on gambling away your paycheques???

  3. My paycheque would barely cover the train fare.
