VIA's #1 has just crossed the CP diamond at Davenport and is headed north to Snider before its will wye the train and head east on CN's York Sub and north on the CN Bala sub on its journey to Vancouver.
According to the VIA website:  
Classes
Both Sleeper Plus (cabins for 1 and cabins for 2 only) and Economy classes will be offered, but Prestige class will not be available.
Seating
Passengers will be required to remain in their cabin and assigned seat.
Meals
The Dining car will be open to Sleeper Plus passengers for breakfast and dinner. A reservation system will be in place to allow and control access. Lunch will be provided in-cabin only and will have to be eaten in cabins. The menu and bar service have been modified.
A new at-seat food cart service will be offered in Economy class. The menu and bar service have been modified.
Park car and Skyline
Unfortunately, the Park car and Skyline car (lounge/dome cars) will not be accessible to any passengers.
I am not sure about you, but the biggest attraction about taking the train across Canada is to see the country in  one of the Budd domes. I think I would rethink my trip until I had access to the dome car.
