Hi, I'm planning on taking a trip out west on train #1. I was wondering, how long is the trip, and any tips worthwhile? I'm doing it the poor mans way... coach class.
What am I in store for, besides the views? Departing Toronto to Vancouver.
Thanks.

The foothills of the Rockies west of Hinton Ab will be interesting.   The Fraser River Canyon (south of Kamloops BC) is travelled at night, so unless the train is delayed a few hours, some of the best scenery will be dark.
