British Columbia By Luxury Train
Get onboard with Rocky Mountaineer’s GoldLeaf Service
BY DON NICHOLS — Fall 2019
1. Ubercomfortable composite leather seats that recline, have adjustable footrests, and can be heated to high, medium, or low by simply adjusting a switch on each individual armrest. Nice.
2. Oversize, glass dome windows that curve and sweep up overhead, meaning unobstructed views of the spectacular mountainous scenery along the route. A dimmable function like you find on luxury yachts and business jets decreases the intensity of incoming sunlight.
3. White-cloth dining area for breakfast and lunch with tasty offerings such as B.C. Sockeye Salmon. The cozy quarters leads to lively conversations with dining companions you may just have met — and don’t be surprised if they’re not from Canada or the U.S.
4. Friendly, attentive service throughout the day, including complimentary juices, sodas, beer, cocktails, and snacks delivered to your seat. The service creates a relaxed atmosphere that encourages camaraderie among the
72 passengers each car holds.
