      When visiting Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, one can decide to travel the island by train. The CPR has a passenger train that begins in Victoria on Wharf Street and travels up island as far as Courtenay.

      The train has been around for some years and it is still running as easily as it did when it was new.

      The inside


      has very comfortable seats made out of very soft corduroy.

      The seats are not only soft but they are very large.

      The aisles are roomy and the windows are nice and large to look out.

      You can take the train to any one of the little towns it goes through and even as far as Courtenay.

      The inside of the train ...


      • is much the same as it was in the past when the conductor checks the tickets, making sure everyone has a seat, and calls ALL ABOARD when the train is ready to leave.

        The scenic view along the way is breathtaking as you pass deep forests, lonesome lakes, snow-tipped mountains, and the raging Pacific Ocean.

        Wildlife is abundant here on the island; there

        are deer passing through the woods approaching humans with caution but not afraid, black bears frequent most areas especially the city dumps.

        The enchanting cougar live uncomfortably close to the towns and very often make their way into someones backyard.

        Besides witnessing the wildlife, the views, the quaint shopping, the peace and tranquility of the island are all noticed onboard this special train.
